Picadillo Recipe

This morning, I was thinking on what to cook for lunch. I want to prepare something healthy yet cheap for my family.


I checked on our fridge and saw ground pork. What to do? Hmmm…


Then I thought, oooo-kay! I’ll be making a Picadillo!


I don’t have much ingredients at hand, like raisins and bell pepper, so I’ll be making my own version of Picadillo. But I’ll make sure it’ll be very palatable.


Let’s get started!
* Ingredients:
500g ground pork
carrots, chopped into small cubes
potatoes, chopped into small cubes
1 small pack of tomato sauce
1 can cooked green peas, reserve the liquid
salt and pepper to taste
cooking oil

* Procedure:
1. Heat oil in a large pan. Saute garlic and onion until they smell aromatic.
2. Add the ground pork. Stir until it turns brown in color.
3. Then add the green peas. I usually add this first than the rest of the veggies because I want these to be soft when chewed. So basically, I want them to be well-done.
4. Add potatoes and carrots. Salt and pepper to taste.
5. Add the tomato sauce. Mix well. Cover and simmer for about 5 minutes.
6. Add the liquid/water from the green peas. Cover again and simmer for about 2 minutes. Serve while hot with rice.
Happy lunchin’!
