Tired of the same old same old Pinoy food?
I have a favorite recipe from an American cook book published gazillion years ago.
I am sharing now with you my own version.
American Beef Stew
1/2 K. Beef sirloin, cut into small cubes 1 x 1
2 T. flour
4 T. cooking oil
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 T. flour
2 C. water
1 beef bouillion
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
1/2 t. Ajinamoto
1 t. Perrins sauce
1 potatoes, cut as big as the meat
2 carrots, cut as big as the meat
100 gr. frozen green peas
Additional seasoning, as needed
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
1/4 t. Ajinamoto
dash of Perrins sauce
Coat the meat with 2 T. flour.
Brown the meat in oil a few pieces at a time then set aside.
Saute the garlic and onions in the pan where the beef was browned.
When the onions and garlic are soft, add the remaining 1 T. flour.
Slowly pour the water. Add the seasonings.
When it boils, add the beef. Cover and lower the heat. Simmer for 2 1/2 hours.
Add the potatoes, carrots and peas.
Cook for an additional 20 minutes or until the poatoes and carrots are soft.
Season according to taste.
* Do not forget to stir every so often so it will not stick to the bottom of the pan.
