Beef and Potato Stew

Warm up inside out with a savory casserole of beef and potatoes simmered in sofrito, tomato sauce, spices and beef bouillon for a positively flavorful, comforting meal. An authentic caldero recipe, this beef stew is prepared in a traditional cooking pot called a caldero, or in a heavy kettle that makes it a Latin classic!
