BUFFALO PICADILLO
This recipe makes eating well super easy. A favorite Cuban and Spanish “comfort food” dish, that has many variations. I tried a couple, with a hybrid of the two in mind, which is exactly where I landed. Traditionally served with rice, but served on butternut squash spirals it is phenomenal! Adjust spices to your liking – but you are going to love this dish!

Ingredients: (serves 6)

1 – pound Wild Idea Ground Buffalo
2 – tablespoons olive oil
1 – onion, chopped
1 – tablespoon ground cumin1 – teaspoon oregano
½ – teaspoon cardamom
¼ – teaspoon paprika
¼ – teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ – teaspoon allspice
½ – teaspoon cinnamon
1 – teaspoon salt
1 – teaspoon pepper
1 – green bell pepper, chopped
5 – garlic cloves, chopped
1 – cup of white wine
2 – cups crushed tomatoes
2 – bay leaves
1 – cup of stuffed Spanish olives, cut in half
1 – cup of raisins
chopped cilantro
butternut squash spirals

Preparation:

1 – In a sauté pan over medium high heat, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Add the onions and all of the dried spices. Stir to incorporate and sauté for about 5 minutes.
2 – Add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil and crumble in the ground buffalo. Using a spoon, break up the meat a bit more as it cooks. Cook for 5 minutes before adding the peppers (reserving ¼ of the chopped peppers to add later) and the garlic and stir to incorporate. Cook for an additional 5 minutes, or until meat is nicely browned.
3 – Add the wine, crushed tomatoes and bay leaves and stir to incorporate. Bring to full heat.
4 – Add the olives and the raisins, and stir to incorporate. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
5 – Remove cover and add remaining chopped bell peppers. Stir to incorporate and cook for 5 minutes.
6 – Serve over sautéed butternut squash spirals and garnish with chopped cilantro.
Note: I reserve some of the peppers, adding them toward the end, for texture and color, but it isn’t necessary.

Kitchen Hint of the Day! SUNDAY

Bell Peppers…….

The highest amount of Vitamin C in a bell pepper is concentrated in the red variety. Red bell peppers contain several phytochemicals and carotenoids, particularly beta-carotene, which lavish you with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. The capsaicin in bell peppers has multiple health benefits.

If you’re only using half of a bell pepper for a recipe, make the other half last longer with a simple trick. When you’re slicing the pepper, make sure to leave the seeds and membrane intact on one side. Then store this side in a sealed plastic bag or container in the fridge. Leaving the seeds intact will make the pepper last longer.

One of America’s Favorites – Sloppy Joe

A homemade sloppy joe with coleslaw

A Sloppy Joe is a sandwich consisting of ground beef, onions, tomato sauce or ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, and other seasonings, served on a hamburger bun. The dish originated in the United States during the early 20th century.

 

 

 

Early 20th century American cookbooks offer plenty of sloppy joe type recipes, though they go by different titles: Toasted Deviled Hamburgers, Chopped Meat Sandwiches, Hamburg a la Creole, Beef Mironton, and Minced Beef Spanish Style.

 

Marilyn Brown, Director of the Consumer Test Kitchen at H.J. Heinz in Pittsburgh, says their research at the Carnegie Library suggests that the sloppy joe’s origins lie with the “loose meat sandwiches” sold in Sioux City, Iowa in the 1930’s and were the creation of a cook named Joe.

References to sloppy joes as sandwiches begin by the 1940s. One example is a 1944 Coshocton Tribune ad under the heading “Good Things to Eat” says “Sloppy Joes’ – 10c – Originated in Cuba – You’ll ask for more – The Hamburg Shop” and elsewhere on the same page, “Hap is introducing that new sandwich at The Hamburg Shop – Sloppy Joes – 10c.”

The term sloppy joe’s had an earlier definition of any cheap restaurant or lunch counter serving cheap food quickly or of a type of casual clothing.

Food companies began producing packaged sloppy joe sauce, such as Manwich, by the 1960s.

 

 

Sloppy Joe meat being prepared

Several variations of the sloppy joe exist in North America. In Quebec, Canada, sandwiches of stewed ground beef such as pain à la viande and pain fourré gumbo are usually served on hot dog buns. A similar sandwich, the “dynamite”, exists in the area around Woonsocket, Rhode Island, and is distinguished by the use of onions, bell peppers, and sometimes celery.

Stewed meat sandwiches are common in several other culinary traditions as well. The rou jia mo, from China’s Shaanxi Province, consists of stewed pork, beef, or lamb on a steamed bun. Keema pav of Indian cuisine uses a pav bread roll filled with keema, a minced, stewed, curried meat.

Ground turkey or textured vegetable protein may be used as a substitute for ground beef.

A sloppy joe differs from a traditional loose meat or tavern sandwich due largely to its tomato-based sauce.

In some stores in northern New Jersey, an unrelated sandwich made with a combination of deli meat, such as turkey, roast beef or especially ham, with coleslaw, Russian dressing and Swiss cheese on three slices of rye bread is also known as a sloppy joe.
