  • 1 pound lean ground beef can use ground turkey instead
  • 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 small Yukon gold potatoes, diced into 1/2" cubes can also use red potatoes
  • 1/2 cup pitted green olives
  • 1/4 cup capers
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 bay leaves
  • salt and ground black pepper, to taste


  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the ground beef for 7-8 minutes, until browned.
  • Add the bell pepper and potatoes and cook an additional 5 minutes until the vegetables start to soften (everything does not need to be fully cooked yet).
  • Add the tomatoes, red wine vinegar, cumin, oregano, and bay leaves. Turn the heat to medium-low, cover the pan, and let it simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Add the olives, capers, raisins, salt, and black pepper, and cook an additional 15 minutes uncovered.
