This one comes from Meps’ Mom, Esther. It’s an old, old family favorite, but after Mom died, she only left a list of ingredients and no quantities. Most of her recipes were that way, just sketchy notes to help her remember.
She left a slightly more elaborate recipe for this that’s filed under Picadillo (Cuban Recipe Pre-Castro).
