A Spoonful of Sofrito: Sunday Night Turkey Picadillo.
A Spoonful of Sofrito: A pinch of advice that will add a lot of flavor to your life.
Sunday Night Turkey Picadillo
Last night, I made a delicious Turkey Picadillo for my wonderful bear, David. Picadillo is a Latin Caribbean ground Beef-Turkey, Chicken or Pork-dish prepared with various spices, herbs, and vegetables.
It's a quick, simple, and delicious dish that pairs really well with white rice. My recipe is posted below; taste it for yourself! ¡Buen Provecho!
Pack of Turkey meat
1 tbsp of cooking oil
1 tsp of salt
1 tsp of black pepper
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp ground cilantro
1 tsp ground cumin
Half an onion chopped
A packet of chopped mushrooms
Some grape or cherry tomatoes halves
1/2 cup of tomato sauce
1/4 to 1/2 cup of water (use less water for a thicker sauce)
Chop all the veggies and set aside spices.
Heat oil over medium heat and brown turkey meat.
Once the meat is brown, then add spices and veggies.
Mix and cook together until veggies are tender.
Add tomato sauce and stir in water. Cook until boiling, then cover, reduce heat and simmer for 10-12 minutes.
Uncover and serve with rice. ENJOY!
