Beef

Picadillo

This is a Cuban dish I fell in love with the first time I tried it. If you love plantains, you will love this as well. If you use green plantains, they won’t be sweet and will be more like a potato. If you decide to use yellow, they will be sweeter and less starchy.

Picadillo

This Cuban-inspired dish combines plantains, spices, raisins, and green olives to make a dish that you will fall in love with. It's Whole30 and Paleo compatible.
