Take these and chop in the food processor or fine if you don't mind small chunks of peppers and onion, the spoon is full of fine minced garlic. ( my kids hate chunks of green stuff so I mince)
Put the olive oil in the pan along with the peppers, onion and garlic saute until soft
Add this wonderful seasoning and the Kosher salt.
the can of tomato sauce
Add the sirloin and cook until brown
Variation: Cut up in to cubes 2 baking potatoes fry in canola oil and add to the cooked picadillo, mix.
You can serve this over cooked white rice or stuffed into Cuban or French Bread. If you like spicy food although not traditional, you can add hot sauce to taste.
I didn't add the potatoes because I'm planning to a Shepard's Pie filling with this batch.
