- Combine in a ball: beef, cilantro, spices, oregano, lemon juice and lime juice. Mix well.
- Heat a large skillet at medium-high heat with 2 tbsp of coconut oil and add meat mixture.
- Cook the mixture until the beef browns and of the juices bubble up, add bay leaves, olives, raisins, tomato sauce and bouillon. Add the green pepper, garlic and onion. Mix and let simmer for 10 minutes, set aside.
