4 Pounds Ground Grass Fed Beef or Elk
12 Hard Boiled Eggs, chopped
8 Large Sweet Potatoes, peeled and cut into 2”-3” uniform cubes
1 Large Onion, small dice
¼ Cups Fresh Garlic, minced
2 – 28 Ounce cans Tomato Product, crushed, puree or sauce
2 Cups Raisins
4 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 – 18.5 Ounce can Sliced Green Olives
4 Tablespoons Kosher Salt
2 Teaspoon Black Pepper
½ Teaspoon Ground Red Chili
¼ Cup Italian Seasoning
Preparation Instructions for Sweet Potato Puree:*
1. Place sweet potatoes in a large soup pot. Add cold water until there is two inches of water
above the highest potato. Place over high heat and simmer until fork tender.
2. Strain potatoes in a colander for 5-10 minutes to allow all excess moisture to drain off.
Then return potatoes to pot and beat with a whisk until smooth or puree in a food
processor.*
*Preparation Instructions for Meat Mixture: (while the potatoes are cooking prepare the
following)
1. Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan over high heat. Once oil shimmers (has the consistency
of water), add garlic and stir for 30-60 seconds. Then add onion and continue to stir.
2. Season beef/elk with salt, pepper and chili. Add it to onion/garlic mixture. Break up meat
with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. Cook until browned and well chopped.
Approximately 15-20 minutes.
3. Add tomato product, olives and raisins. Stir until uniform, then gently fold in eggs. Taste
the mixture at this point and adjust seasoning to your liking.
Assembly of Pastel de Papa:
1. Divide meat mixture into three 9” x 13” pans. Spread evenly until compact and level.
2. Divide sweet potato puree mixture into the three pans. Spread puree evenly over the top
of the meat mixture like you are icing a cake. Do your best to leave the meat mixture
undisturbed.
3. Place pans in a preheated 350°F oven. Bake for 30 minutes.
4. Remove pans from oven. Cut each pan into 6 portions and eat immediately. You may
refrigerate for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 6 months.
