Mom’s Picadillo Con Papa. Ground Beef with Potatoes

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium Russet potato or 2 white potatoes peeled and diced
  • 1 pound ground chuck
  • 1 teaspoon salt more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 small white onion diced
  • 2 large Roma tomatoes roughly chopped
  • 1 to 2 serrano chiles roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup water pinch of salt and Mexican oregano

Instructions:

Preheat 1/8 to 1/4 cup of olive oil in a nonstick pan to medium heat for a few minutes. Add the diced potatoes and cook until browned and crispy in most spots. I like to cover my potatoes while they cook. The steam created helps them cook a little faster from the inside. Transfer potatoes to a plate lined with paper towels to drain set aside.
Add the ground beef to that same skillet and heat to medium/high. Season beef with 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon cumin, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes until nicely browned.
Add the garlic and onion, continue cooking for 2 to 3 minutes. Add tomatoes, serranos, 1/4 cup water, salt, and oregano to the blender and blend until smooth. Pour tomato mixture into picadillo. Let it come to a boil and taste for salt. Fold in the potatoes and stir until well combined. Taste for seasonings and continue cooking at a low simmer until sauce thickens and reduces, 7-10 minutes. Remove from heat.

Notes:

Tips~ you could substitute the salt with Knorr, Caldo de Pollo(chicken bouillon powder). I enjoy the added flavor it adds to my dishes.

ENJOY!
