"The traditional dish uses a good amount of olive oil and meat with a lot of marbling. This version is lower in fat, but is true to the spirit of the recipe. Although it does take a fair amount of time, it is not difficult to make."

  1. In a large saute pan, heat oil over medium heat. Cook onion and garlic in oil, stirring frequently, until transparent. Stir in cubed meat, and cook until browned. Stir in red bell pepper, bay leaf, cumin, and oregano; cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Stir in sherry, tomato sauce, vinegar, olives, raisins, and capers. Pour in enough water to just cover meat. Bring to boil, reduce heat to low, and cover. Simmer until fork tender, about 1 1/2 hours. Add more water if the stew becomes too thick.
  3. Stir potatoes into the stew. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook, covered, until potatoes are almost tender. Uncover, and cook until done.

Oh, my, my, my, my, my! Or should I say, que bueno! My hubby LOVED this dish, giving it an off the charts "10"! Tweaks: I made exactly as directed except used beef broth instead of water, did...

I left out the potatoes and served this over rice. I put all the liquids in a measuring cup and added just enough water to make 2 cups. I threw the meat and liquid in my pressure cooker and co...

Loved this! Another hit at my Soup and Stew party. Interesting blending of flavors that only got better the longer it simmered away in the crock pot. Next time I will make it spicy by adding ...

I was looking for something a little different and this was a great choice. It's very flavorful and satisfying. My alterations were to double the meat, onions and tomato sauce, and add a 7 oz ...

Made for our gourmet cooking club of 8 people on 4/3/04. The stew was a hit as part of our Cuban inspired menu. Rave comments about the great blend of flavors with the unusual combination of i...
