Beef Picadillo

So many amazing flavors in one dish! Rich seasoned sauce, grass fed beef, green olives, and currants. And, yes, they all taste amazing together! This is easily one of my favorite go to dinners. We eat it over sweet potatoes or cauliflower rice most of the time. But its equally amazing over regular rice if you’re all about those grains! Want to take it up a notch? Throw in some homemade Tostones as a side!


1lb grass fed ground beef
1/2 yellow onion chopped
3 medium cloves of garlic minced or pressed
1/2 green pepper chopped
1 can fire roasted diced tomatoes

2 T oregano
3 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp chili power

1/4 cup currents
