Picadillo

This is another simple, quick, and easy Filipino dish that we inherited from Spain. Beef is the traditional ground meat that we use in this dish but if you are not a beef-etarian, you can use ground pork, turkey, or chicken. Enjoy this simple and delicious dish my friends.

By the way, I would like to apologize for not posting and sharing recipes in the last few weeks. It’s just that I… didn’t feel good about doing it while a lot of people in the Philippines are suffering from the effects of the typhoon; that is just my personal thing. However, I would like to ask everyone to continue keeping these women, men, and children in our thoughts and in our prayers.

If you would like to help, I have listed some of the organizations where you may send your support. Thank you very much.

    What happened in the Philippines is so terrible! I used to live in Florida, so I’m well aware how awful storms can be. I’m definitely thinking of those folks. Anyway, super recipe. I’ve had this dish before, but have never made it. I really should – it’s incredibly flavorful stuff, and pretty easy to make. Good post – thanks.

    Ray, you have such a huge heart!!! Your picadillo reminds me of a beef and veggie dish my mother use to make as a quick and easy comfort good meal. So good. You’re looks very, very delicious! Sounds like a perfect meal to make to counter all of the heavy eating we do during the holidays. Thanks for sharing! Hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  10. I’m really sorry about what happened in the Philippines – so sad. :( I couldn’t function for many days when earthquakes/tsunami happened several years ago. Just couldn’t focus on anything but thinking of people who were suffering. Hope the situation gets better in the Philippines. This dish sounds so familiar but I know I h haven’t had it before. Looks really delicious and photography is beautiful!
