Directions

  1. In a Dutch oven or heavy skillet heat the olive oil over high heat.
  2. Season the beef with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and the black pepper.
  3. Saute the beef, in batches if necessary so that the pan is not crowded, until well-browned on all sides, about 4 minutes. Transfer the beef to a plate and set aside.
  4. Add the onion and green peppers, carrot to the skillet and cook, stirring frequently, until softened and caramelized around the edges, about 6 minutes.
  5. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.
  6. Add the tomato paste and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  7. Add the tomatoes, water, bay leaf, crushed red pepper and remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt.
  8. Return the beef to the pan and bring the sauce to a boil.
  9. Reduce the heat to medium-low, partially covered and let the beef cook for 45 minutes.
  10. Add the potatoes and sweet potato and cook until they are easily pierced through with a fork (about 45 minutes)
  11. Add the parsley. Serve immediately.

We add just enough water to cover everything, we don't like it very brothy as it takes away from the taste, so just add as much as you like.

Recipe was perfect, but I chose to kick it up by adding 1 lb of linguica cut to bit size piece's and 2 cups of beef broth and a Portuguese roll on the side with butter. Thank you for a great meal 🤙
