Happy Wednesday everyone! Oh boy, what a week. I will save that for my future posts, but for now I will share to you my husband’s (yes, we just got married!) favorite Pinoy dish – Filipino Picadillo or Giniling.
When he and I were still living in Aurora province there was an eatery we often go to for our dinner. She makes the best pork steak, fried chicken, vegetables cooked in coconut milk, and Filipino picadillo. My husband was so crazy over her picadillo that he would eat with rice or pasta. Since yesterday was his second day at his new job, I rewarded him by cooking his favorite Filipino dish.
Let’s get cooking!
Preparation of Ingredients:
- 1/2 kg ground beef
- 1 1/2 cup of diced potatoes
- 1 1/2 cup of diced carrots
- 1 cup diced carrots
- 1 cup minced green and red bell peppers
- 270 ml tomato sauce (approximately)
- 1 medium sized minced onion
- 6-7 cloves of minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon granulated brown sugar (could be more depending on how much sweetness you prefer)
- 1 cup of beef broth
- salt and pepper
- 2 tablespoons of cooking oil
- Heat cooking pan and pour-in cooking oil
- When the oil is hot enough, sauté garlic until it turns brown
- Add the onions, and sauté until they’re soft
- Put in the ground beef and cook until they are brown
- Pour in the beef broth and tomato sauce. Simmer it for 20 minutes.
- Add the carrots, bell peppers, and potatoes. Mix them all together and cook for 12 minutes or more.
- Add salt, ground pepper, and sugar
Note: My husband prefers beef, but you may use ground pork too. He also prefers more carrots, bell peppers, and potatoes so that’s why you may lessen it if you prefer.
