Carne Guisada

2½ lbs. beef stew meat
1 medium onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, diced
salt & pepper to taste
Enough water to cover meat

* Boil these ingredients for at least 2 hours until meat is tender. Once this is done add the rest of the ingredients below.

1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
½ cup sofrito sauce
1 packet Sazón seasoning
2 cups peeled, cubed potatoes
½ cup peeled, cubed yautía
½ cup peeled, cubed yuca (remove center core)
1 carrot, diced
½ cup olives with pimentos
1 tbsp. cappers
Add more water to cover all ingredients

One the rest of the ingredients are added, bring to a boil and cook another 30 minutes or so until vegetables are done. If you can't find yautía or yuca don't worry, just use the potatoes.

Serve with rice and tostones.

How easy is that? Doesn't take much effort, just put on the stove and dice some vegies....
