The name “picadillo” is given to a wide variety of dishes from Spain, Latin America and the Philippines. Though the ingredients change with each region, all picadillos are a rich blend of cultures, techniques and flavors. In this Southeast Asian version, we’ve included coconut vinegar, a delicious variety made from the fermented sap of the coconut tree. Though it doesn’t retain much “coconutty” flavor, this vinegar’s mix of sweet and sour adds a bold balance to this traditional dish.
