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.
tablespoons salted butter
large red onion, halved and thinly sliced
01On a 6-quart Instant Pot, select More/High Sauté. Add the butter and melt. Add the onion and 1 teaspoon salt, then cook, stirring often, until golden brown at the edges, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the cumin, oregano and garlic, then cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the tomato paste and cook until the paste begins to brown, about 1 minute. Stir in the beef and broth, scraping up any browned bits and breaking the meat into smaller pieces. Stir in ¼ cup of raisins, then distribute the mixture in an even layer.
