Pork Picadillo Wraps

Pork Picadillo Wraps

Several months ago, I had the opportunity to attend a cooking class at Well Seasoned in Langley BC on how to cook perfect pork, featuring Johnston’s Local Quality BC Pork.  Along with other local bloggers and foodies in media, I sipped Narrative wine while watching Angie Quaale from Well Seasoned prepare delicious pork dishes for us all to sample.

Pork Picadillo

One of the recipes we tried was this Pork Picadillo, made from ground pork, tomatoes, olives, and raisins (yes, raisins!).

This was a new combination to me, but I loved it! I think it makes a great weekday meal, because it’s quick and versatile. You can serve it over rice, or wrapped up in a tortilla or lettuce. I’ve even used the leftovers in a taco soup, and it was amazing.


The kids ate it in flour tortillas, and added cheese, sour cream, and guacamole. It was a big hit! Thumbs up all around! I’m kind of surprised, because they don’t normally care for olives, but there aren’t very many olives in this and they just blend with the other flavours so well that you don’t really notice them.

I had mine in a lettuce wrap, making it a perfect healthy dinner for those of us who are trying to cut back on the carbs.
