Turkey Piccadillo is a lighter alternative to my favorite Cuban beef Hash A smaller recipe made with ground turkey instead.
Ground meat turkey
He grew up in a Latin household, beef Hash He would take turns dinner as a child. It’s also one of the first things I learned how to cook. It’s a 30-minute dish, and while it’s cooking, I cook the rice in another pot until everything is ready at the same time. Present it with prof Quick hit For a little sour and dinner is ready! My family loves it with beef, but some nights I like to switch it up with turkey as a smaller option. Personally, I’m not a fan of 99% lean turkey, it’s too dry for my taste, so I use 93% lean ground turkey instead. Great leftovers in tacos, Empanadas or Cassadia.
Growing up we loved the nights my mom used to make Piccadillo! My friends always wanted to eat on those nights too, they loved this dish! My mom always made it from beef, and it’s delicious and I often do it too. But some nights, if I want a lighter option with less fat I switch to ground turkey, it’s honestly fine!
