The best aspect of this dish is that it is incredibly easy and quick to make, never mind the fact that it's cheap and, most importantly, incredibly flavorful if done right. Let's get to it.
What you'll need:
2 large onions (diced)
2 large tomatoes (diced)
1 large bell pepper (diced) * any "color" will do
3 garlic cloves (finely minced)
1.5 cups of rice
8 cups of water * or beef broth
2 pounds of beef (diced) * any cut will do, just no fat or nerve tissue!
powdered red food coloring (flavorless)
salt, pepper and cumin to taste
How it's done:
It's all quite simple, really. Lightly brown your onions in a large pot (this recipe will feed about six good eaters) with some oil on a medium-high flame. Add the garlic and, as soon as they release their aroma, add in the bell pepper. Let that cook down for about two minutes. Finally, add in the tomatoes. Make sure to season well with salt, pepper, and cumin. Finally, add in the food coloring and let this cook down for another five minutes while stirring occasionally.
That's it. Serve it up with some fried plantains and eggs.
