Expert Tips

Serve with a side of rice.

Beef stew is a traditional dish in Puerto Rican cuisine, and it’s usually served with a side of white rice or rice with beans. It was one of my favorite childhood dishes, and one of the first recipes I learned to cook at the age of 13 when I wanted to help my mom make dinner. You may already be familiar with this stew as it is very popular in Latin culture.

For a different taste, use chicken or turkey meat instead of beef. You can also use beef or vegetable stock instead of water.

Directions

  • 1 In a large pot, add beef, bay leaves, onions and garlic with 2 cups of water, or the necessary amount to cover the meat. Cook covered on medium-high heat for 2 hours or until the meat is tender.
  • 2 Add potatoes, carrots, seasoning, oregano, cilantro, coriander, cumin, salt, pepper and tomato paste; cook uncovered on low heat, for 20-25 minutes or until the potatoes and carrots are tender.
  • 3 Serve and enjoy!
