Beef In Tomato Sauce-Carne De Vaca En Salsa De Tomates

This is simple, and non time consuming..It can be left to cook for an hour and a half..I served mine with Machuca(See recipe)..



500 grams of Stewing Steak, cut into chunks.
1 Onion, peeled and chopped
6 Cloves of Garlic, crushed
500mls of Tomato Sauce Recipe

1 Teaspoon of Garam Masala(This is a South Asian Spice Mix, that you can find in Indian stores)
Half to 1 Whole Scotch Bonnet Pepper, chopped and deeseeded if desired.
2 Bay Leaves
200 mls of Beef Stock
Salt and Black Pepper to taste 
Cooking Oil


Firstly, cut the beef into chunks..Alternatively,you can get the butcher to do this for you. Wash and drain the meat, and reserve it. Chop the onions and crush the garlic. Add the meat to a bowl, along with the seasonings and the onions and garlic. Rub everything together, and heat a pan with oil.  Fry the meat for about 5 minutes on a high heat for it to brown and to fry the onions a little. Add the stock, bay leaves and tomato sauce. Leave to cook on a simmering heat, for 1 hour and 30 minutes or until tender.  Reduce the sauce to a desired thickness, and serve with machuca, rice or fried dumplings. Enjoy!!
