Potato & Tomato Stew (Patates Tavasi)

A savory thick, tomato-based potato stew, Patates Tavasi warms the stomach and the soul.

     I’m not exactly sure if this dish is meant to be a stew, but the way I experienced it (in a bowl, served with rice, served with a spoon), it felt like a thick stew. Regardless, it’s delicious. Stew beef is the basis of the dish and gives a basic flavor element to it. Coupled with the tomato paste, red pepper paste, onions and garlic, it is so full of flavor and so delicious!

Here’s the recipe:

  • 300g stew beef chunks
  • 1 small white onion (diced)
  • 4 small red onions (diced)
  • 10 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 5 medium potatoes (peeled and cubed)
  • 2 TBSP red pepper paste
  • 3 TBSP tomato paste
  • 2 TBSP butter
  • 1 TBSP black pepper
  • salt (to taste)

Preparation:

Sauté the beef chunks in a pan until browned. Then add the butter and keep sautéing.
