Ingredients and recipe

As for the ingredients, we need beef (it can be loin cut, Russian roast, turtlefish or popcorn), carrots, onions, garlic, vegetable broth, white wine, salt, pepper, chili pepper, oregano and paprika.

Then let’s get to work. Cut the vegetables, leave the garlic whole, and brown in a large saucepan. Add the meat and rotate until it is sealed. We add seasonings, broth and half a liter of white wine. We leave on medium heat for 30 minutes. Then we add a little more of the wine (half more or less of what we have left) and let it boil. After cooking time (it should be allowed a long time for the meat to be tender), we add the rest of the wine to it and leave it for 15 minutes. Then we serve, and enjoy a traditional and exquisite food of the Cuyana land. Of course, accompanied by a good wine.
