Stewed Beef (simply put; Stew Beef) is loved in Jamaica. Whether served with rice or ground provision you cannot go wrong.
- 2 lbs beef (cut up in bite size)
- 4 sprigs thyme
- 1 medium onion (chopped)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 oz cooking oil
- 1 tomato (chopped)
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 oz soy sauce
- ¼ teaspoon brown sugar
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 oz vinegar
- 2 oz tomato ketchup
- 1 Irish potato (cut into 8 pieces)
- 1 carrot (sliced lengthwise into 4 pieces)
- Wash beef in cold water and vinegar for about 1 minute.
- Add all ingredients together with meat in a cooking bowl, except cooking oil, potato, carrot, and ketchup.
- Rub in seasonings for about another 2 minutes or so.
- Remove the seasonings from the beef using a fork.
- Leave the seasonings in the same cooking bowl that you originally had the meat in. A little soy sauce left in the bowl too.
- Heat the cooking oil on high in a skillet until the oil is hot.
- Turn down the fire to medium. Add the meat to the oil, a couple pieces at a time. Brown the meat at this point.
- Add all the meat to the skillet, use a fork to turn over the pieces when they are "brown"; not burnt.
- Add 4oz. of water to the beef and allow the meat to cook until it is tender. Repeat this process several times before this happens because the water will evaporate.
- When the meat is tender add all the other ingredients with about 6 oz. water to the skillet.
- Cover the skillet and reduce the heat a little bit, and let this stew cook for another 12 minutes.
