picadillo 

You’ve punished yourself with picado, now treat yourself to picadillo!

Also known as pipirrana or piriñaca. A summer staple in Andalusia, it’s just tomato, onion and pepper chopped into little cubes (3 mm or 1/8 inch) and dressed with salt, oil and vinegar. For each serving, my preference is to peel one ripe plum tomato and to use half an unpeeled Cubanelle pepper or a peeled section of a big bell pepper. This is the time and place for that good olive oil that’s become so damn expensive.

It's an extraordinarily tasty and healthy side dish, especially with oily fish like mackerel. Eat with bread or crackers (picos or regañá) and wash it down with cold beer. I have it at least twice a week with mackerel, grilled for lunch or canned for dinner. Hoo-whee, that’s good eatin’!!!

In Mexico picadillo is a meat dish: beef, preferably sauteed and pulled apart--though ground beef will do--plus onion and jalapeño, maybe a little tomato paste.

Visisting friends many years ago my wife was asked to make picadillo for dinner. The jalapeños were pretty spicy. The next morning the same iron skillet was used for eggs. Though the skillet had been well rinsed with hot water after the picadillo, the eggs turned out a bit spicy.

Hey Richard, good to see you back. Yeah, it’s a different dish everywhere else. A friend gave me his grandmother’s recipe for picadillo cubano, and it’s... interesting. Ground beef, as you say, cooked with a lot of vegetables and spices. Looks pretty good up to that point but then goes off the rails, IMO, calling for raisins, green olives, capers and orange juice. Served with black beans, rice, fried plantain and fried egg, which I think would make a better meal than all the other stuff.

I never left. I lurk most days, just don't find much to say.
