My wife stopped at the market and tried to find some shaved beef for Philly Cheesesteaks. They didn’t have any, but she found something labeled Carne Picada. Having no idea what that was, I had to investigate.
Carne Picada roughly translates to minced meat. It is a Mexican dish and is often served in tortillas (like a taco) or over rice. It is a great way to tenderize a lesser cut of beef. Plus it is easy to make, as long as you give yourself time for it to cook in a slow cooker or oven.
In trying to stay with a keto diet, we served it in a bowl over cauliflower rice, garnished with sliced scallions, sour cream and cilantro. A splash of lime would have brightened it up, too.
