Directions

  • 1 In a large stock pot, heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil over medium heat.
  • 2 Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes. Stir occasionally. Push the onions aside and add the cubed beef. Brown beef for 2 minutes on one side, flip meat over and brown the other side for 2 additional minutes.
  • 3 Stir the onion and beef together and add the chopped garlic, if you choose to include it. Stir and brown garlic for 1 minute.
  • 4 Add the potatoes, pumpkin and carrots. Stir and add the rice. Cook for 1 minute.
  • 5 Add the vegetable broth, oregano, cumin and parsley, thoroughly stir all ingredients and cook with the pot covered for 15 minutes on low heat (pot should remain covered throughout the cooking process). Add more hot broth if the liquid evaporates. Be sure the potatoes, rice and pumpkin are fully cooked.
  • 6 Uncover, stir and add the green beans and corn. Stir and cook for 5 more minutes with the pot uncovered.
  • 7 Serve hot.
