DIRECTIONS

  • Wash beef with lime juice, & salt; allow to marinate for 10 minutes.
  • Rinse with cold water.
  • Make a paste from green pepper, green onions, parsley, garlic and vinegar; rub it on meat and let marinate for about 30 minutes.
  • Brown beef in small amount of oil.
  • Add tomato paste, seasonings and water to cover the beef.
  • Add chopped green bell pepper and place on top of the beef while it is cooking.
  • Let the beef cook until tender, continually adding tomato paste mixture as needed, so beef does not burn or dry out.
  • After meat is tender, bring a large pot with a medium amount of water to a boil and start placing in the vegetables.
  • First, add the cabbage and eggplant, next add the lima beans and green beans. Add the carrots, and chayottes - allow to steam until somewhat tender, then add spinach and watercress.
  • Pour some oil over the vegetables, add the butter and 1 Maggi cube - continue to let steam till tender.
  • Once tender, add the vegetables to beef mixture and stir everything together.
  • Let cook for another 10-20 minutes.
  • Taste, adjust seasonings.
  • If necessary, add another Maggi cube.
  • Taste again, and adjust all the seasonings.
  • This also goes very well with white rice and black beans or kidney beans, that have been cooked down and blended in a blender to make sauce pois(bean sauce).
  • Enjoy!
