Filipino picadillo is also known as giniling, which means a minced or ground meat of some sort. Filipino picadillo is a ground meat dish with tomato sauce, potatoes, carrots, and more~.
- 1 tbsp oil
- 3 cloves of chopped garlic
- ½ onion, sliced
- 4 small potatoes (or 2 medium potatoes) cubed
- 14 baby carrots, sliced in thirds (or 2 medium carrots, cubed)
- 1 lb ground meat of your choice (I use ground beef)
- 1 tbsp fish sauce
- 2 tbsp hot sauce (I like Cholula or Tabasco)
- Salt and pepper
- 1 can diced tomatoes (or tomato sauce)
- 2 tbsp raisins (optional)
- ½ cup peas
- Turn on the saute mode to normal level and pour in the oil. Wait a few minutes for the oil to heat up.
- Throw in the chopped garlic and sliced onions and sautee until the onions are translucent. Then, throw in the cubed potatoes and sliced baby carrots. Saute these for a few minutes until the carrots become a little more vibrant.
- Next, add in your ground meat (I use ground beef). Follow up with the fish sauce, hot sauce, and salt and pepper of your liking. Mix this all together.
- Pour in the can of diced tomatoes and stir. Add in the raisins if you’re down!
- Close the pot with its lid and let it saute for 15 minutes. Keep the vent open to let the steam release.
- Open your lid and test that the potatoes and carrots are tender by poking them with a fork. Next, add in the peas and a little more salt. Mix, mix, mix! Unplug the pot, you’re done!
This dish is so flavorful and hearty. Of course, a side of rice completes this meal. You don’t necessarily need the rice since there’s already potatoes in the meal, but the rice makes it so much tastier.😋
