Directions Edit

  1. Heat the oil in a large deep skillet or Dutch oven.
  2. Add the ground beef, onion, bell pepper, celery and carrot.
  3. Stir and mash to break the meat into granules (a potato masher works great).
  4. Cook until the meat and onions start to brown, stirring frequently.
  5. Add the minced garlic and sauté, stirring constantly for another minute.
  6. Add the seasonings, raisins, olives, cooking wine and tomato sauce.
  7. Stir to mix.
  8. Turn heat to medium-low and cook, covered for about 15 minutes or until fairly thick, checking frequently so it doesn't stick or scorch.
  9. Add tomato paste and mix in well.
  10. Cook on low for another five minutes.
  11. Serve with white rice, fried ripe plantains and a light green salad.
  12. Leftovers can be used the next day to make Spanish rice or sloppy joes.
