1 lb. flank steak
1 lb. goat meat
1 lb. boneless pork shoulder
1 lb. chicken breast
4 teaspoons lemon juice
4 – ½ teaspoons salt
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
5 cubes beef stock
1-2 tablespoons chopped garlic
1 teaspoon dried sage leaves
1 teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon ground coriander
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
½ teaspoon chili powder
Dumplings (optional)
½ lb-1 lb. yucca
½ lb-1 lb. butternut squash
½ lb-1 lb. malanga
½ lb-1 lb. ñame
1 corn on the cob


Step 1:

Cut veggies, keeping plantain and yucca pieces separate from the rest.


Step 2:

Cut yucca and plantain into 1-inch thick pieces. Squash, malanga and ñame should be cut into 1-inch cubes. While cutting veggies, prepare beef stock using the cubes.


Step 3:

Heat one tablespoon of olive oil in a large cast iron pot. While heating oil, cut all meats about 1 ½ inches this and place in four separate bowls. Season and toss each bowl with ½ teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon lemon juice.


Step 4:

Brown each bowl of meat separately over medium-high heat, then transfer to beef stock.


Step 5:

After all meats have been browned and transferred, add a cup or two to the pot to scrape up the bottom.


Step 6:

To the same pot, add vinegar, onion powder, sage leaves, chopped garlic, oregano, coriander and chili powder. Mix well and transfer to the stock pot with meat.


Step 7:

Add plantain and yucca pieces and simmer for 10 minutes. If including dumplings, add at this time, cover pot and simmer for 15 minutes.


Step 8:

Cut corn into 2-inch pieces and add to pot along with remaining veggies. Simmer for another 10 minutes or until veggies are soft.


Step 9:

Serve with white rice and avocado. Stew will thicken with starchy vegetables. 

In this recipe, we added 4 additional cups of water.
