Description

A low calorie, low fat twist on a Cuban favorite. Lean ground beef simmered with tomatoes, red peppers and olives for a bold entree. Serve with roasted veggies or tortillas on the side.

Ingredients

  • 1-¼ pound Ground Beef, 95% Lean
  • ¼ cups Onion, Chopped
  • 4 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1  Jalapeno, Chopped
  • 14 ounces, fluid Canned Diced Tomatoes
  • ¼ teaspoons Brown Sugar
  • 8 ounces, weight Mushrooms, Sliced
  • 1  Red Bell Pepper, chopped
  • ½ bunches Cilantro, Chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon Ground Cumin
  • 1 can (about 4 Oz. Size) Green Olives, Chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Brine, From The Can Of Olives
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • Black Pepper To Taste

Preparation

1. Cook the beef, onions, garlic and jalapeño until the beef is cooked through. Stir often, breaking up the ground beef.

2. Add the can of tomatoes and the pinch of sugar. Stir well. The sugar isn’t going to add sweetness; it’s actually going to cut the acidity of the tomatoes.

3. Add the mushrooms, bell pepper, cilantro, cumin, olives and brine. Stir well to mix all the flavors. Add salt and pepper to taste.

4. Continue cooking until most of the liquid has evaporated. Serve with a side of veggies, rice, beans or tortillas!
