I am making this for dinner tonight. A friend of mine, Kristen, who lives in Florida shared this Cuban dish with me almost 6 years ago and we love it. The ingredients are convenient and it is a quick meal to throw together.
This recipe is free of milk, eggs, wheat, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, fish and shellfish
1 1/2 lbs ground sirloin
1 green pepper, diced
1 yellow onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, pressed
2 large cans of tomato sauce
3/4 cups red wine or cooking wine
1/2 tsp cumin
green olives, they are called Spanish Manzanilla Olives, stuffed with pimento (eyeball it, add as many as you like...they give the dish a great flavor).
cooked rice (enough for 4 people)
4-5 small red potatoes, peeled, cooked and cut into chunks
In a large pot, brown sirloin and drain. Add green pepper, onion and garlic, cook until tender. Add tomato sauce, wine (or cooking wine) and cumin. Cook the potatoes in the microwave for about 5 minutes or until tender and add them to your meat mixture. Cook on medium heat and let flavors come together for about 30 minutes. Cook the rice. Serve the meat mixture over rice.
Cook some sweet plantains (they are found in the frozen section...Publix brand is inexpensive and they are good) to go with this meal...yum.
