  1. 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  2. 1 medium onion, peeled and chopped

  3. 1 large green bell pepper, cored, seeded, and chopped

  4. 3 garlic cloves, peeled and minced

  5. 1 pound extra lean ground beef

  6. 1/4 cup tomato sauce

  7. 1/4 cup sliced, stuffed green olives

  8. 1/4 cup raisins

  9. 1 tablespoon capers

  10. 2 tablespoons white vinegar

  11. 1/4 teaspoon sugar

  12. 1 teaspoon salt (I'd leave this out - olives are salty)

  13. 1/2 teaspooon freshly ground black pepper

  14. 1 6 ounce jar pimientos, drained and sliced

  15. 6 slices of french bread, fried in oil Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute the onion and green pepper until the onion is translucent. This is about 3 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and saute for another

  16. 2 minutes more. (Note, this is your sofrito.)

  17. Add the beef and break it up well- you want no lumps. Add the tomato sauce, olives, raisins, caper, vinegar, sugar, slat and pepper. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for at least 20 minutes. The consistency should be slightly liquid.

  18. Transfer the picadillo to a serving dish and garnish with the pimento slices. Arrange the slices of fried bread around the plate.

  19. 20 minutes, stir in

  20. 4 or 5 beatne eggs and cook them until scrambled.

  21. 1 pound of peeled cubed potatoes in

  22. 1/4 cup of vegetable oil over medium heat until the potatoes are golden brown. This will take about 10 minutes. When the picadillo is done, toss the potatoes in and mix well. If you want to reduce the fat, add the potatoes raw to the picadillo and cook until done.
