This wonderful dish has so much flavor. It reminds me of the great flavors of Colombian cooking. Slow-cooked, simmered steak makes this dish so tender and juicy! If you desire some heat, like I do, add a jalapeno pepper. You can also substitute beer for half the water for another variation on the flavor. Serve over rice or with tortillas.

Directions

  1. Heat the corn oil in a skillet over medium heat. Gently lie the steak in the oil and cook each side until brown. Remove the steak to a plate. Add the onions, garlic, tomatoes, salt, pepper, and cumin to the skillet; cook and stir until the onions are tender. Return the steak to the skillet. Pour the water into the skillet. Stir in the crumbled bouillon. Bring the water to a boil and drop the heat to low; cover. Allow to simmer until the meat easily pulls apart with a fork, about 2 hours.
  2. Remove the steak to a cutting board. Use two forks to shred the meat. Transfer to a serving plate. Pour the onion and tomato mixture from the skillet over the shredded beef.

I have had this saved for a while now, I finally got the chance to make it this weekend. I doubled the recipe to feed 10. I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out great, for the little taste I got! They scarfed (is this a word?) it down and only left me a few shreds to try, since I was cooking tortillas for them. The little shreds I tried were awesome tho! Also, didnt even get a pic, next time I will. This must be a keeper if its gone that fast. I served it with re-fry beans, mexican rice and tortillas. Thanks for sharing this great recipe.

Very good! I'm a little confused by the reviewer that thinks Columbians overdo cumin - I can't see how this dish could be called 'Columbian' without it. A bonus to this recipe is the excellent broth you are left with - I see soup in my future. Thanks for the recipe! :)
