Olla de Carne

Olla de Carne translates to “pot of meat” but I feel like there wasn’t a lot of actual meat in this recipe. The recipe called for two pounds of beef and roughly four and a half pounds of vegetables. It reminded me of Caldo de Res, which is Mexican beef stew, but with more root veggies.

This was by far the easiest meal I’ve prepared so far. It was also one of the most boring.

costarica.com. I’m pretty sure that’s legit.

Maybe I should have thrown in some cilantro…

  1. Hmmm. Yes, this stew seems in desparate need of a flavor boost. If nothing else stock would have probably been nicer. Since all the root veggies (and the corn) maybe a contrasting seasoning like cumin would be nice?
