Cuban Stew Beef with White Rice


1 pound of stew beef
1 can tomato sauce
1 medium onion
1 medium green pepper
3 cloves of garlic
Dried oregano
Bay leaf
Olive oil
1/2 cup golden cooking wine
1/2 cup red cooking wine
Garlic Powder
Beef bouillon
Sazon Goya with Azafran
White rice

Sprinkle stew beef with salt, pepper and garlic powder and brown in about a half a cup of olive oil in a heavy skillet.

Meanwhile get your Cuban trinity ready. Onion, green pepper and garlic diced up.

When your stew beef is browned remove it from the skillet and saute the onion, green pepper for a few minutes, until soft, then throw in the garlic and cook for a few more minutes.

Add the cooking wine and let it reduce.

Now you can start throwing in everything else while it's cooking on medium heat. Add one tablet beef bouillon, 2 bay leaves, one envelope of Sazon.

Add 1 can of tomato sauce and fill the can with water and add it too. Then add 1 teaspoon of cumin, l teaspoon of dried oregano, salt and pepper to taste.

Bring to a boil.

Cover, lower the heat to a good simmer and cook for 1 hour.

Serve over white rice.

I hope you enjoy this recipe. You can add diced potatoes about 20 minutes before the hour is up. Some people add green olives, and some add sweet peas. It's a matter of taste.

  1. This looks really yummy - but you lost me with that last ingredient, what is it?

  2. Sazon is used for flavoring and coloring. You may not be able to find it in your area. You can find it here

  3. you can also find the goya on ebay of all places. That is where I brought mine from. It was like 4.00 with shipping and it was a economical pack. Making this one next!!!

  4. Goya is a popular brand at the Hispanic stores in this area.. good looking eats!

  5. I know what everything is but golden cooking wine? and id love to try it a cooking wine? or a sherry?
