This receipe was an excellent basic. However being Mexican American, I changed it up a bit. I used Ox Tails(med pckg/4) and added some Stew meat which worked grate. I used small whole cabbage,calabas,carrots,onion,small red potatoes, tomatoes and I cooked meat first for 45min(alone) then I added the vegtables and continued to cook for 1 more hour; This receipe throw it all in at once, vegtable like cabbage and potato/carrots will break apart if cooked to much. All it all it came out well, my husband loved it!! I do believe its better than his Moms!! PS.. he's asked me to make it again. oh!! I also added just a few shakes of TONY CHECERIES seasoning for flavor; and Use Limes when served to squeeze on top.

This is delicious. My girlfriend loved it. I only made a couple of changes: I cubed the beef and browned it with onions before adding beef broth and canned, diced tomatoes. I let that simmer for about 45 minutes before adding the rest of the ingredients. I used 1 piece of star anise to layer the flavor the broth, and threw in some green bell pepper I had left over. Good stuff!
