How to Make It


In a large, deep skillet, heat the olive oil until shimmering. Add the cumin seeds and cook over moderate heat until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the onion, bell pepper and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the ground beef, olives, raisins and oregano and cook, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon until no longer pink, about 8 minutes. Add the Worcestershire sauce, tomato sauce and stock and season with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer over low heat for 20 minutes. Serve with steamed rice.

Make Ahead

The picadillo can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.

Suggested Pairing

Grenache tends to have juicy, lively fruit, which can go with practically anything. It’s exceptional with dishes like this picadillo, which has a lot going on, from tomatoes to chiles to olives.
