Beef Picadillo (Fast & Slow)

Picadillo—a stewy ground beef dish popular in Cuba, the Caribbean and Latin America—combines sweet and savory flavors. There are many variations, but the essentials are ground meat and tomato, with raisins for sweetness and chopped olives for a balancing touch of brine. Prep the olives and cilantro while the beef cooks. Serve with beans and rice and, if you like, chopped fresh tomatoes and hot sauce.

Tip

Don't use double-concentrated tomato paste, often sold in a tube. Its potent flavor will overwhelm the other ingredients. Also, don't use ground beef that's leaner than 85 percent or the meat in the finished dish will have a dry, pebbly texture.
