Meat with Potatoes (Carne con Papas)     
by Marta's Cuban American Kitchen

Carne con Papas               Serves: 4  

Notes: One of the most popular Cuban dishes


1) Make the boullion with 6 cubes and 4 cups water.
2) Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Saute the onion, green pepper and garlic until the onion is translucent.
3) Add cumin, salt, pepper, bijol, and bay leaves.
4) Add tomato sauce and cook for about a minute. Just to heat through.
5) Put the rest of the ingredients into the crockpot.
6) Cook on low setting for 6-8 hours.
NOTE: If you’re impatient and not intimidated by it, you can make this same thing in a pressure cooker.
Follow steps 1-4, but put in a pressure cooker instead of a crockpot.
Following manufacturer’s directions, cook under 15 pound pressure for about 45 minutes.
