    ciao's Note:

    This meat stew is delicious and easy. A nice change of pace, and it makes the house smell so good. Serve with rice and a salad, or crusty bread. From a Goya cookbook--Best of the Americas-Carribean.

      Followed recipe as listed except I used my presser cooker instead. I cooked over medium-high heat until full pressure was achieved. Then I reduced heat to medium and cooked for 45 minutes. Very tender and tasty! Thank you!
