Picadillo Minced Beef cooked in Tomatoes with Raisins and Olives.

next week you will be able to try this dish at my Diner this dish is a favourite all over Central and South America.

You will need:-

500 grms ground beef
1 onion, sliced
4-5 cloves of garlic, peeled and chopped
2 diced jalapenos
1 tin chopped Tomatoes
8 green olives, pitted and sliced plus 2 tbspns of liquid from jar
1/4 cup softened raisins
1 Green Pepper diced
1 tsp cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1  teaspoon brown sugar mixed with 1 teaspoon molasses.
2 potatoes peeled and cubed.

Cook the ground beef, jalapenos and onions over medium heat until the beef is about 1/2 cooked. Add the garlic and cook
for 2 more minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and cook over low heat until the beef is well browned and crumbly and the tomatoes and onions are softened and begin to combine with the other ingredients. Cook the potatoes in 1/2 cup  oil over medium heat in a large pan. When the potatoes have softened and are browned, fold into the beef mixture.

I am going to serve this in a flour tortilla with some slaw.

So either come in and try it or make some yourself.
