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.

Step 1

Season beef all over with Adobo.

Step 2

Heat oil in large pot over medium-high heat. Add meat in batches; cook, flipping occasionally, until well browned on all sides, about 10 minutes per batch. Transfer meat to plate; set aside.

Step 3

Add onion, green pepper and garlic to pot; cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes.

Step 4

Add tomato sauce, Sofrito, vinegar, oregano and bay leaves and cook for 2 minutes, stirring often. Stir in water, bouillon and Sazón until well blended; bring to boil, cover, lower heat and simmer for 1 hour until meat is just tender.

Step 5

Add potatoes and carrots and return to boil, adding more water if stew gets to dry. Lower heat, cover and simmer for 45 minutes until vegetables and meat are tender.

Step 6

Stir in alcaparrado and capers and continue to simmer uncovered for 5 minutes or until stew thickens. Serve with white rice.
