This Cuban food is made with pork or beef, with spices, a rich tomato sauce, and cubed potatoes. In some places wine is added and in others beer. It is served with rice, fried or ripe plantain, and vegetables.

How to Make Carne con Papas:

  1. Season the chunks of beef or veal with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a heavy pot that has a tight fitting lid. Sauté the meat for about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the onions, green peppers, mashed garlic, and parsley. Continue to sauté until the onions and pepper wilt.
  4. Next add the wine, raisins, bay leaves, olives, and tomato sauce.
  5. Stir well and continue to cook for about 5 more minutes over a medium heat.
  6. Next, reduce the heat to low and add the water, mashed tomatoes, capers, seasonings, cumin, oregano, pepper, more salt, and a packet of Goya seasoning.
  7. Cover with the lid and cook on a low heat 1 hour or more until meat is almost fork tender.
  8. When the meat is almost tender, add the potatoes, balsamic vinegar, a little more water perhaps another half cup, and adjust the seasoning.
  9. Cover again and slow cook until the potatoes are fork tender.
  10. You may have to add a little more water until potatoes are done. Each time you check to see if the potatoes are done, check to make sure sauce has not dried out.
  11. Add a little more water, mix, and spoon the sauce over everything, as if basting, every 20 minutes or so until the potatoes are cooked through.
  12. Serve with white rice, salad, and some crusty Cuban bread, or Italian or French bread if Cuban is not available.
  13. Enjoy your delicious Carne con Papas!
