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 cumin
1 – 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.
