Yummy Picadillo

This one dish that is quick and easy to do. There are many variations using more than just carrots and potatoes and i think they also taste good. I prefer the simple version though, just ground meat or in this case ground chicken, potatoes and carrots. The eggs i added because i think it goes well with it. Ground pork is usually used for this, but i prefer the flavor of ground chicken. All this needs is minced garlic, a chopped onion, ground meat (chicken, pork or beef), carrots and potatoes, tomato sauce and soy sauce. Saute the garlic, followed by the onions then the ground chicken, season with S&P and let it cook till no longer pink. Add about 2-3 tablespoons of soy sauce and 1 pack of tomato sauce. Add some sugar if you like it a bit sweet. Boil some eggs and serve it with the Picadillo. Goes well with rice or bread or just as is!

Oh - I've been wanting to try to make picadillo. Can you tell me how much ground meat and how much tomato sauce you use? I would love to try this one out.

Thanks!!

Hi! For about 1/2 kilo of ground meat, you'll need a 250 gram pack of tomato sauce. That's the ideal measure, however i use a little more (probably close to 500 grams) because i want a lot of sauce. :)

Enjoy!

It does look really tasty! I have a recipe like this but using tamarind water and it is really good.
