Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer at a low boil until tender all the way through when pierced with a sharp knife, 40 to 45 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine paprika, oregano, cumin, salt, and black pepper in a small bowl and set seasoning mix aside.

  • Coat the bottom of a large saute pan with oil and place over medium-high heat. Add beef to the hot oil and sprinkle with seasoning mix. Cook, stirring as needed, until browned on all sides, about 10 minutes. Cook in batches if needed, to avoid overcrowding. Transfer beef to a plate and set aside.

  • Add more oil to the pan if necessary and add onion. Cook and stir until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add broth, chile sauce, and tomato paste to the pan. Cook and stir until sauce is well combined and warmed through, 3 to 5 minutes more. Return beef to the pan, bring sauce to a low boil, then reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer stew for 1 hour.

  • Drain sweet potatoes and allow to cool until safe to handle. Remove skins using a paper towel to pull them off and discard. Place sweet potatoes in a large mixing bowl and add sour cream, butter, and salt. Beat using a hand mixer until smooth and creamy.

  • Spoon individual portions of sweet potatoes onto serving plates and top with heaping spoonfuls of stew. Garnish with chopped green onions.

Cook's Note:

You can use cubed chuck roast in place of stew meat.

My husband is raving about this dish and even proposed making it for Christmas dinner. It has a great combination of the sweet and creamy sweet potatoes paired with the mildly spicy beef. We will definitely do this again. The only change I made was cooking it ina slow cooker about 4 hours instead of on the stove. Read More

My family loves this recipe. I have used the sauce suggested and I have also substituted another brand. I love the mashed sweet potatoes but my son and grandson prefer it with rice. I ve made this at least 5 times this last year. It works great cooking on the stovetop roasting in the oven or in a crockpot. Read More

This recipe will definitely be in heavy rotation! Soo good. The shops near me didn t have the Herdez sauce so I made my own based on the sauce ingredients listed on the Herdez website (guajillo peppers tomato paste water vinegar garlic onion salt pepper and added cayenne for an extra kick). I made this for my work lunches for the week so I portioned the sweet potatoes in separate containers from the stew until I reheated them. 10/10 will make again. Read More

This was sooooo good! I was skeptical when I tasted the stew as to how it would go with the sweet potatoes so I made lasagna as a backup dinner. I no longer have room in my stomach for lasagna lol you will not regret making this dish Read More
