How to make Cuban Beef Stew:
  • In a large pan used for sautéing, heat oil over medium heat.
  • Cook onion and garlic in oil, stirring frequently, until the raw smell leaves and they turn transparent.
  • Add in cubed meat, and cook until browned, stirring from time to time.
  • Stir in red bell pepper, bay leaf, cumin, and oregano; cook for a good five minutes.
  • Add in sherry, tomato sauce, vinegar, olives, raisins, and capers and stir thoroughly. Pour in enough water to just cover meat.
  • Bring it all to a boil, reduce heat to low, and cover. Simmer until the meat turns tender, which would take about ninety minutes. If the stew turns too thick, add more water.
  • Stir potatoes into the stew. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook, covered, until potatoes are almost tender. Uncover, and cook until done.
