Steak Picado is a Mexican that consists of cubed or chopped steak with Bell Pepper, Onion and tomato. The ingredients are simmered slowly, letting the flavors meld into a wonderful, spicy beef stew. Now you know that I love to improvise with whatever I can find in the house so here is my own version, called Brisket Picado.


1 large onion, chopped 2 Jalapenos, diced (bell peppers are expensive right now!) 2 tbsp Olive Oil

1 lb. cooked brisket, cubed (use any leftover beef you might have) 1/4 cup water 2 tbsp Chili Powder 1 tbsp black pepper 1 tbsp Kosher salt 1 tbsp Italian Seasoning 1 15oz. can diced tomatoes

2 cups cooked rice (cook in chicken broth for more flavor)

Pour the oil into a large pot over medium heat. Add the onions and Jalapeños. Cook until the onions are soft and almost see-thru.

Add all of the rest of the ingredients except the rice. Mix well. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 30 minutes. Serve over rice.

Don't just love a simple dish that doesn't use a lot of dishes?
