Hilopites with Beef
I absolutly love this sauce! I have done this red sauce with chicken, but this time, went with stew beef. This is a brief description, since its late and I'm tired after a tough workout! Nice to be back!
I sauteed onions with olive oil, and browned the meet, and then add some basic tomato sauce. I also added a few cups of water. I flavoured the sauce with salt, pepper, cinnamon and a few bay leaves. I was simmering this on the stove, but worried that the meat wouldn't be tender enough. I decided to put it in the oven, uncovered, at 300 degrees. After one hour, I added the hilopites and took the pot out after another hour. This sauce is also great over hand cut fries --my mom would make that for me. Yum!!
