I doubled this recipe, an also decided to work with what I had, and from knowing how my mother cooked stews (we are Spanish)...so I subbed capers for green olives, added about 6 oz red wine, 1 cup beef broth , added about a teaspoon of cumin, about 4 tablespoons of chopped fresh parsley, 1 tablespoon of paprika, 2 teaspoons of oregano, and a shot of olive oil. I sauteed a small chopped green bell pepper with the onion and garlic. Also I did not use sofrito...basically the onions, green pepper, and garlic are already sofrito so that's kind of redundant. Anyway...Amazing!!
12.9.15 I'm not a huge fan of slow cooking, but beef stew is one meal that always works well in a slow cooker. At 4 hours on low, neither the meat nor the potatoes were tender, so I bumped up the temperature to high, and cooked for an additional 1-1/2 hours. Followed the recipe to the letter with the exception of adding a good splash of red wine and using halved olives WITH pimientos. We enjoyed this stew with yellow rice and black beans.
I made this today, and absolutely loved it. It is one of the tastiest stews I have ever cooked! I did tweak it a bit..Upon suggestions from some of the critiques, I browned the meat in a packet of Sazon and a shake or two of Adobo. When adding to the slow cooker, I added 12 oz. red wine and 6 oz. beef broth. I also added a couple of spoonfuls of chicken boullion to enhance the flavor. Served with white rice. To die for!
I followed the suggestions of everyone else and did 4 hours on low and then 1 and a half on high. I actually doubled the recipe with no real issues that I could see. I did add some of the actual liquid from the jar of olives to it. I thought it made it even better. Reminded me of a slightly spicy picadillo. My husband and son very much enjoyed it.
Delicious! Only thing I did different was tossed the raw beef in adobo saffron spices before browning it. Otherwise I followed the recipe to a T. Definitely a new family favorite! Even my 2 year old loves it!
This Is a great dish. I had never heard of sofrito, and living in the wilds of rural Wales I was unable to buy a jar. So I did a bit of research and made my own: onions, garlic, bell peppers, olives, corridanda, oregano, bay leaves and salt and pepper. The addition of olives really gave the stew a fantastic flavour. (I understand that salt wouldn't have been used traditionally, but I like salt!). Thank you
I made this today but I did not use a crockpot nor does this dish call for one rather it uses the term slow cooker which can mean braising. I did mine in a cast iron pan with a tight fitting lid followed the recipe exactly. I usually do the first time I make a dish from Allrecipes. Next time I will make a couple of minor changes to suit but all in all this was a very good recipe. After browning my meat on the stove top I put the pan in the oven at 250 for about 3.5 hours took it out and it was ready to serve meat tender and potatoe's done.
I followed the recipe and some of the suggestions from others like browning the meat with the sazon seasoning (i made it myself since my store didnt carry it) and I added red wine worcestershire and beef broth to the mix and it STILL tasted like something was missing. I cooked it on high for 4 hours and the potatoes didn't soften I had to take them all out and microwave them for 15 minutes. Flavor was seriously lacking super disappointed - the recipe sounded so delicious!
