1 lb. Beef Chunks for Stew
2 Guineos Verde (Green Bananas)
1 Platano
2 Yautias
1 Malanga, Malanga, Malanga! (LOL)
1 Piece of Calabaza
Corn on the Cob (optional)
1 Can of Garbanzos
1 Can of Tomato Sauce
Recao (or even better..Fresh Sofrito from Carol ☺) or Fresh Recao Leaves
Fresh Garlic
Black Pepper
Salt to Taste

Peel your root vegetables and cut into bite size pieces.

Fill pot halfway with water and salt. Add beef and bring to a slow boil until meat is cooked. As the beef is cooking, add the seasonings and the tomato sauce.

Next add the platano and malanga (they take longer to cook). Then add the yautias, guineos and corn.

Once everything is cooked, add the calabaza and the garbanzos.

Keep cooking on medium heat until it starts to thicken a bit or until it reaches the consistency you prefer.
