Karl’s Cuban Picadillo

Adapted from a Cook’s Illustrated recipe

I get these emails from Cook’s Illustrated as they put up their videos. This week’s video included a recipe for Cuban Picadillo. I was inspired to make it for this Sunday night’s dinner.

Karl’s Cuban Moros y Cristianos (Cuban Black Beans and Rice)

I am making Cuban Picadillo, a mild Cuban chili. Chili calls for beans and rice. I have made Mexican black beans and rice before, but each country—village?—mother?—has their own take on this dish. This is my take on Cuban Moors and Christians.

Karl’s Cuban Mojo Sauce

I found Seville sour oranges and Cuban mojo sauce sounded like a good thing to mix with beef for a savory taco. While I am making this sauce for carne asada tacos, it could also be used on chicken, fish or pork. For vegetarians, it could even be use as a sauce for rice or vegetables . The Seville sour orange juice gives this sauce a unique and distinctive flavor.
