  • Do not trim excess fat from meat before cooking; you can remove the fat when you shred the beef.
  • Salt and pepper the meat and dust lightly with flour.
  • Brown the meat in oil in a big Dutch oven.
  • Add enough water to surround the meat, but NOT cover it.
  • Add in green pepper, sliced onion, and garlic.
  • Simmer, covered, until meat is fork tender, about 2 hours (add more water as needed to keep from burning); remove from heat and cool.
  • Discard vegetables and shred the meat.
  • In the same pan you cooked the meat in, saute the chopped onions, garlic, and green pepper in oil until limp.
  • Add in tomato paste, crushed tomatoes, cumin, wine, and bay leaf; add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Finally, add the shredded beef; cover and cook on low for about 30 minutes, stirring occasinally.
  • Remove bay leaf; serve hot over cooked rice.

    This is so excellent! We added some hot sauce and crushed pepper because we like spice!!! I would leave out and add individually if serving company! This is a great cookbook and I love the recipes. We only get to Miami for our fix about twice a year!!! Nice to be able to have it at home!
