Carne picada again?

That oh-so-conveniently finely cut beef referred to as carne picada makes a repeat appearance in another recipe, this time using a variety of vegetables and the Gulf Coast’s beloved rice.  For quick cooking, all of the vegetables are finely cut, and can be cut ahead of time and refrigerated overnight, making for a quick dinner preparation after a busy day.

Carne Picada Stew with Rice

  • 2 c. carne picada beef
  • 1 c. onion slivers
  • 1 c. thinly sliced carrots
  • 2 c. shredded cabbage
  • 1 c. thinly sliced or shredded summer squash (yellow or zucchini)
  • 1 c. slivered bell pepper
  • 1 can diced stewed tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 c. chopped celery
  • 2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp. Cavender’s Greek Seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp. crushed rosemary
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • Cooked rice

Combine carne picada, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, rosemary and Greek seasoning, set aside.  (May be left overnight.)

Heat oil in large non-stick skillet over medium heat.  Add onion and saute until translucent.  Add bell peppers, carrots, celery, and bell peppers, and continue cooking, stirring frequently, for 3-5 minutes.  Add marinated beef and cabbage, continue to stir until cabbage becomes limp.  Add tomatoes, and reduce heat to simmer.  Simmer for 15-20 minutes.  Serve over rice.
