Sancocho is made up of beef tips, beef stock and a variety of starches that are native both to the island and to Africa. You can switch starches in and out if needed. If you are missing something, add a little more of something else, but do not leave out the corn. The corn is one of the best parts. I always save my corn for the very end; it is almost like a savory dessert.
In a preheated dutch oven or heavy pot over low-to-medium heat, combine olive oil, garlic, beef cubes, and onions. Stir until beef is brown on all sides and onions begin to caramelize. Add in chopped pepper, cilantro, salt, ground pepper, tomatoes, and 1 quart of beef stock. Cook down until stock is reduced by half, about 20 minutes.
Stir beef, then add in all the remaining ingredients and beef stock. Continue to cook until meat is tender and the vegetables are soft.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira. In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
