By now you can probably tell two things about my cooking 1. I love cooking Cuban Food & 2 I love using the crock pot. This recipe is no exception! Great for a cold winters day or can be the perfect fix-it and forget it meal.
Carne con Papas is a Cuban dish that is truly a comfort food. You can find this on the menu any given night in a Cuban’s home. It’s very easy to make and includes the basics of Cuban ingredients. The Cuban ingredients every home has.
As with any recipe there are millions of ways of cooking this recipe but this one is the best that suites my families needs, as well as mine 🙂
What you will need:
- 2 lbs stew type beef
- 1/2 cup oil (I use olive oil)
- 2 bay leaf
- 1 onion
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1 green pepper
- 1 can tomato sauce
- 1 cup dry wine
- 1 cup water
- 2 lbs potatoes
- 2 packages of Goya seasoning
Like I said above everyone cooks this recipe differently because well, that’s what happens with any ethnic meal. Most recipes are passed down by word of mouth and some are never written down just spoken to from mother to daughter. That being said the taste is always the same no matter how you look at it when made with the same delicious ingredients.
To make this delicious comfort food I basically chop and mix everything together in the crock pot and cook on high for 3-4 hours.
I use Sazón Goya for seasoning (This is found at most Walmarts across the country but you can order it online or use Culantro & Achiote spices as well as salt and pepper). I’ve lived in many states like Kansas and Connecticut and have always found it,however ordering online can help solve that problem 🙂 This seasoning is that gives this meal it’s delicious taste. Finally,I simply Fix and forget!
