  • Summary

    Versions of picadillo—a savory dish of beef, onion, and tomato punctuated by olives and raisins—are served in many Latin American countries. Crowned with a tender biscuit topping made with arepa flour, it becomes a homey one-dish dinner.

    • 1 garlic clove, minced
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 pound ground beef chuck
    • 1/4 cup raisins
    • 3/4 cup tomato sauce
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1/4 cup chopped pimento-stuffed green olives
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1 pinch ground cloves
    • 3/4 cup white arepa flour
    • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
