Pork Picadillo with Pineapple

Hey, I'm still here!

This, I guess, has been the longest time I have not posted anything since I started blogging seriously.  What have I been up to?  Well there is a new project (which I'm deeply grateful) and LEAP - Leadership Excellence Achievement Program - to which I am again an active supporter.  I am not complaining, I am happy to be back in the community.  The downside, I missed cooking, baking and of course blogging not to mention sharing ideas with you guys.

Well, I'm back and hopefully I can post at least two stories in a week so you won't forget me...LOL!  The project that me and my friends are working on is getting bigger (as days go by) and I will be busier with LEAP than ever, but I am happy!  Plus the fact that I am working on a coffee table book (I'll tell you more about it soon) and another dream project.  I don't want to work, eh? ahahah!

Last week, in one of those days that I have time to be with my kitchen, I took the opportunity to create this simple dish.  Not so special but definitely yummy and colorful :)


PORK PICADILLO with Pineapples 


Ingredients
2 gloves garlic, crushed
1 medium red onion, chopped
300 gms ground pork
30 gms green bell pepper, cubed
115 gms tomato sauce
100 gms green peas
150 gms cubed carrots
150 gms cubed potatoes
80 gms pineapple tidbits
1 dried bay leaf
1 and 3/4 cups water
1 Tbsp soy sauce
salt
pepper
oil for sauteing



Method:
Heat oil in a pan and saute garlic until brown then add onion and cook until transparent.

Add the ground pork and a pinch of salt.  Fry for 3 minutes or until pork is slightly brown.  Add bell peppers and cook for another 3 minutes.

Add tomato sauce, green peas, soy sauce and bay leaf.  Cook for 2 minutes with constant stirring.

Add water and simmer for 15 minutes.

Bring in potatoes, carrots and pineapples.  Simmer for 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender.  Season with salt and pepper.

Best serve with rice and fried plantain.


Serves 4.

  1. I would totally make this version! I grew up with just a ground beef & potatoes one, which sounds great on paper but I never cared for it...and I eat everything. So thanks for adding a new spin on this!

  2. Pineapples are really versatile; you can add them to almost any pork, chicken, or beef dish, but I haven't tried adding pineapples to picadillo, so this is a must-try! Thanks for sharing your recipe. Here's my FTF entry: http://www.delightmyappetite.com/2011/10/food-trip-friday-hainanese-delights/

  9. I hope you have fun with LEAP. So many things we want to do, but a lot of it interferes with our cooking and writing. What are we to do? :) Love this dish. All the vegetables with the complement of a little meat look great AND, it looks easy which I love! Beautiful bowl of food!

  10. Mailuto nga ito minsan, pero siguro wala ng saging, kanin na lang, pwedeng pwede na.

    What camera are you using in taking pictures? How do you set up? I love how you photograph your dishes.

    Hopping from Food Trip Friday.
