Simple skillet meals with bold flavor.

I don’t know if you agree, but I think a quick and delicious skillet dish is something I should have. Picadillo is an excellent option when you want a simple meal that will satisfy your hunger. This is a basic ground beef hash. You can serve it with rice or tortillas, but it’s also very filling. Although it takes only 30 minutes to make, the best part about this dish is the bold, comforting flavor it produces from a single skillet.

Serves 4
10m prep time
20m cook time


1 lb ground beef
1 small onion, diced
2 large potatoes, peeled and diced
2 large carrots, peeled and diced
4 cloves garlic
1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
1 1/2 cups beef broth
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 bay leaf
1/2 cup frozen peas
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Rice or tortillas for serving


Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add ground beef. Season with salt and pepper and cook until barely pink, and drain fat as needed.

Add onion, potatoes, and carrots. Continue cooking until vegetables are soft and meat is cooked through. Add garlic and cook 30 seconds more.

Stir in tomato sauce and beef broth. Add cumin, oregano, and bay leaf and bring to a simmer. Cover and let cook 10 minutes.

Remove lid, stir in peas, and continue cooking uncovered until potatoes are tender and most of the liquid has cooked down.

Serve with tortillas or rice and enjoy!
