Picadillo is a hearty Filipino ground beef stew in a rich tomato sauce with potatoes, carrots, and raisins. It’s simple to make and inexpensive, but it’s filling and delicious. Excellent with steamed rice!


  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup water or beef broth
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and cubed
  • 2 tablespoons raisins
  • 1/2 cup frozen green peas, thawed
  • 1/4 cup green olives, pitted
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Cook until the onions and garlic are softened.
  2. Cook, breaking ground beef into pieces with the back of a spoon, until lightly browned. Excess fat, if any, should be drained.
  3. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes after adding the fish sauce.
  4. Combine tomato sauce and crushed tomatoes in a mixing bowl.
  5. Bring the water to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the beef is cooked through.
  6. Add the potatoes, carrots, and raisins. Cover and continue to cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.
  7. Mix in the green peas and olives.
  8. Cook until the sauce has reduced and thickened. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
