  • 2 lbs lean beef (eye round roast), cubed
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ⅛ tsp ground black pepper

  • 1 can (15 oz) stewed tomatoes
  • ⅓ can (2 oz) no-salt-added tomato paste

1  Heat olive oil in a large pot. Gently blot beef cubes dry with paper towels, carefully place them in the pot, and sauté.

2  Add onion, garlic, salt, pepper, cilantro, and enough water to cover the meat. Cover pot and cook over low heat until meat is tender.

3  Add tomatoes and tomato paste. Continue cooking for about 20 minutes.
