How To Make Cuban Picadillo With American Wagyu Beef

How To Make Cuban Picadillo With American Wagyu Beef

Picadillo is a Cuban style of hash traditionally made with ground beef. It has tons of flavors and texture thanks to ingredients like chopped green olives, capers and raisins. Plenty of spices and a touch of coconut sugar make this simple dish completely irresistible. Traditionally served over white rice, picadillo also makes a scrumptious filling for tacos, burritos, quesadillas, sandwiches, etc. Great for breakfast (fry an egg and put it on top), lunch or dinner, it’s versatile and always satisfying.

How To Make Cuban Picadillo With American Wagyu Beef - Beck & Bulow

I highly recommend making some fried plantains on the side if you can get your hands on some - they go perfectly together. It’s also great with tortillas, naan or other types of flatbread to scoop up all the goodness. This is a highly customizable recipe - add in potatoes or other vegetables, chop up some green chiles for extra spice, or experiment with different types of stuffed olives. You can find the sazon seasoning packets on the international aisle of most grocery stores, or even make your own at home (there’s lots of recipes available for homemade sazon online).


Pasture Raised American Wagyu Beef


Our beef is completely free range, raised on our beautiful ranch just outside of Las Vegas, New Mexico. The cows are a variety of American Wagyu that resulted from breeding Japanese Wagyu cows with American Angus. The result is flavorful, tender cuts of beef that look and taste amazing. These cows live essentially wild, roaming free on a wide open expanse of beautiful land in northern New Mexico. There is a stream running through the ranch, lots of trees and absolutely stunning scenery nestled in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. They are pasture raised and true to Japanese tradition, have access to high quality grain as they desire.

Never Cooked With Tallow? Here’s Why It’s The Best


Tallow is rendered fat, cooked over low heat so that it separates from bits of muscle and connective tissue. This ensures that nothing but pure fat is left behind. It used to be a staple in every kitchen, but the advent of vegetable and seed oils took over for many years. Tallow is great for cooking at high temperatures because it has a very high smoke point. It also has an impressive shelf life and won’t go rancid like other cooking oils. It gives food a rich, delicious flavor and can be substituted for butter or oil in any recipe. In fact, one of our employees here at Beck & Bulow loves to mix it into his coffee, bulletproof style. If you don’t have tallow on hand, simply replace with your favorite cooking oil.

Grass Fed Beef Korean Rice Bowls With Easy Homemade Sauce

Grass Fed Beef Korean Rice Bowls With Easy Homemade Sauce

This is one of those dinners for when you seriously just don’t have much time to make dinner. My usual tactic on these types of nights is to heat up some bison sausage and call it a day, but this is a really nice alternative. With the help of a rice cooker (or leftover rice in your refrigerator), this takes very little effort to put together and tastes delicious. It’s as easy as whisking some ingredients together for the sauce and browning some of our delicious grass fed ground beef - that’s it. And despite how simple it is, it’s completely craveable. Kids will love it, too. It’s the perfect easy meal for when you’re swamped with things to do or just want something yummy to curl up with and watch a movie.

A Super Easy Dinner With Convenient Ingredients


I added coconut sugar and coconut aminos because they’re my personal go-to’s for cooking Asian food. If you don’t have them on hand, any soy sauce and sugar or other sweetener will do. Add more fresh ginger as well if you like more of a kick - not to mention the wellness properties it offers. I love a big spoonful of kimchi on any Asian dish. This distinctively flavored fermented condiment offers a dose of gut-healthy probiotics and may even help boost immunity. If it’s not your thing or you don’t have any, just leave it off. It’s kind of like a spicier, saltier Korean sauerkraut.


Beef That’s Pasture Raised In Mountain Valleys


Our grass-fed & finished beef is raised essentially wild on a beautiful 20,000 acre ranch here in New Mexico. The cows roam freely as far as the eye can see with extremely minimal handling. For those familiar with New Mexico, it might sound surprising that there’s so much lush green grass for them to graze on. These fields are naturally irrigated by a sparkling river flowing with ice-melt from the Sangre de Cristo mountains. We started stocking beef due to popular demand from customers who wanted to eat this meat with the knowledge that it’s impeccably sourced.

Many people avoid eating beef because it’s often from industrial feedlots. These factory farming operations are harmful to the environment, the animals and the health of people who consume the meat. When cattle and other grazing animals are raised using sustainable agricultural practices, we can actually repair soil health and restore balance to our ecosystems. The natural rhythms of life provide the soil with everything it needs. All we have to do is stop supporting industrial feedlots and raise meat the way we’re supposed to. That’s why our mission at Beck & Bulow is to steer as many people as possible away from eating factory farmed meat.
