Directions

  • STEP ONE

    Season the beef cubes with 2 teaspoons of Adobo.

  • STEP TWO

    Heat a Dutch oven to medium heat, then add the olive oil.

  • STEP THREE

    In 2-3 batches, sear the beef for 3-5 minutes per side, in order to get some nice browning on the outside.

  • STEP FOUR

    Once the beef is browned, remove from the pan and set it aside.

  • STEP FIVE

    Add the onions and La Fe sofrito to the pan.

  • STEP SIX

    Scrape the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon to loosen the brown bits.

  • STEP SEVEN

    Next, add the La Fe sazon, powdered chicken bouillon, beef broth, La Fe red cooking wine, La Fe tomato sauce, bay leaves and Italian seasoning.

  • STEP EIGHT

    Bring the mixture to a boil, then add the beef back in.

  • STEP NINE

    Stir, then cover and reduce the heat to simmer. Cook the carne guisada for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.

  • STEP TEN

    Next, add the potatoes, carrots, La Fe stuffed olives, and La Fe aji chile paste, then cook for 30 minutes more.

  • STEP ELEVEN

    When the carrots and potatoes are tender, the carne guisada is done.

  • STEP TWELVE

    Stir in the La Fe red vinegar, then check the stew for seasoning.

  • STEP THIRTEEN¬†

    If it needs more salt, add a little bit more powdered chicken bouillon (this stuff is super salty, so use sparingly).

  • STEP FOURTEEN¬†

    Serve with La Fe white rice, La fe tostones and a salad.
