It is with great pleasure that I give you Erica from My Columbian Recipes, a wonderful blog full of mouth watering food that makes me want to hop on a plane to Columbia....

Beef Stew in Tomato Sauce (Estofado de Res)

Colombians love Estofados. We make it with chicken, fish, beef and pork served over white rice. Estofado de Res is very rich, with the tomato sauce base adding sweetness to the dish.
(4-6 Servings)

  • 2 pounds boneless stew beef, cut into 2” x 2” cubes
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 cup chopped white onion
  • 2 large carrots, slice crosswise
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups beef stock
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin powder
  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and cut into small chunks

1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onions, garlic and cook for about 4 minutes or until the onions are translucent.
2. Coat the beef chunks with the flour and add to the pot, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned.
3. Add the tomato sauce, beef stock, bay leaf, salt, cumin powder and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium low, cover and let it cook for about 1 hour and 10 minutes or until the meat is tender.
4. Add the potatoes and carrots. Cover and cook for an additional 30 minutes or until the potatoes and carrots are tender.
5. Serve with white rice.
