    I found my father's recipe for Picadillo:

    1/4 taza de aceite
    1 cebolla
    1 aji grange
    1 diente de ajo
    1/2 lb. de carne de res molida
    1/2 lb de carne puerco molida
    1/4 lb. de jamón molido
    3/4 taza de alcaparrado
    1 cdta. de sal
    1/8 cdta. de pimienta
    1/2 taza salsa de tomate
    1/4 taza vino seco

    Caliente el aceite y sofria en él la cebolla picadita, el ajo machacado así como el ají tambien picadito. Agregue las carnes y el jamón y cocínelo todo durante unos minutos revolviendo para que no se pegue. Añadele los demás ingredientes y déjalo cocinar a fuego mediano durantes unos veinte minutos. Da 6 rationes.

    Translation:

    1/4 cup olive oil
    1 onion
    1 large bell pepper
    1 garlic clove
    1/2 lb ground beef
    1/2 lb ground pork
    1/2 lb. ground ham
    3/4 cup Alcaparrado (Goya product which is a mixture of Spanish Olives with capers and pimento)
    1 tsp. salt
    1/8 tsp. chili pepper powder
    1/2 cup tomato sauce
    1/4 cup dry wine

    Heat the oil and saute the chopped onion, crushed garlic as well as the chili pepper on it. Add the meats and ham and cook it all for a few minutes, stirring so it doesn't stick. Add the other ingredients and let it cook over medium heat for about twenty minutes. Give 6 rations.

    My dad altered this, using only ground beef, no pork or ham. I thought he didn't use tomato sauce, but remembering back, I can recall he did use it, but not every time. One thing though, there was no sazon spice used, I think because it's not really a Cuban thing. It may be more Puerto Rican possibly. I think that's where the chili powder was used instead, or maybe because this recipe is really old. I don't think sazon spice existed back then since it's really a combination of other spices. The word for caper in Spanish is alcapara, and the alcaparrado is a mixture you can buy pretty easily with these other ingredients in it, primarily manzanilla olives, capers, and pimento. Goya is the company best known for making it.

    Anyway, I'm going to make this and see how it turns out. I thought I would post it in case you might want to try this variation, campy.

    We had homemade hamburgers for our dinner tonight. Instead of grilling them on the back porch (too humid out yet), we broiled them in our oven. They tasted good...

    Tonight I grilled a steak after marinating it in Bourbon and served it with a pasta salad.
