About this recipe: I received this tasty and easy recipe from my son's Cuban grandmother. Serve it over black beans and rice with fried plantain on the side - amazing!


Serves: 8 

  • 1.3kg minced beef

  • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Brown the minced beef in a casserole or large pot over medium-high heat until crumbly and no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Pour off any excess grease, then stir in the onion and garlic; cook for 2 minutes before adding the red pepper, green pepper, raisins, olives, tomato puree, water and coriander. Bring the mixture to the simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer 10 minutes, or until the peppers have cooked to your liking.
