    pepper, finely chopped

  • kosher salt

  • 1-2

    bay leaf

Directions

Directions: Brown meat on medium flame in large sauté pan and season with salt and pepper. Use a wooden spoon to break the meat up into small pieces. When meat is no longer pink, drain all juice from pan. Meanwhile, while meat is cooking, chop onion, garlic, pepper, tomato and cilantro. Add sofrito (onion mixture) to the meat and continue cooking on a low flame. Add alcaparrado and about 2 tbsp of the brine (this adds great flavor) cumin, bay leaf, and more salt if needed. Add tomato sauce and 1/4 cup of water and mix well. Reduce heat and simmer covered about 15-20 minutes.
