Peruvian Beef Stew
Get ready for a comforting and flavor-packed Peruvian Beef Stew that will warm your soul. This recipe takes tender cuts of beef, like Country Style Ribs, and combines them with delightful baby yellow potatoes, aromatic garlic cloves, and a touch of fiery Red Limo puree. With a sprinkle of cumin, the flavors come alive, creating a tantalizing stew that will transport you to the vibrant streets of Peru.

2 lbs beef (I used country-style ribs)
10 to 12 baby yellow potatoes
3 to 4 garlic cloves
2 tbsp red limo puree
1 tbsp cumin
1/2 purple onion
1 can diced tomatoes
1 cup cilantro
1 can peas

To begin, carefully cut the beef and potatoes into bite-sized cubes, approximately 1 inch in size, and transfer them to the Instant Pot. Slice the purple onion into eighths and add it to the pot, allowing it to infuse its unique flavor into the stew. Now, it's time to add the star ingredients - the garlic cloves, Red Limo puree, cumin, and diced tomatoes. These elements will contribute their distinct aromas and tastes, elevating the stew to new heights.

Seal the Instant Pot and set it to cook on high pressure for 30 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld and the beef to become tender and succulent. Once the cooking time is complete, manually release the steam to safely open the pot. Take a moment to appreciate the enticing aroma that fills your kitchen as the lid is lifted.

Now, it's time to add the final touches to this delightful stew. Gently stir in the peas, allowing them to warm through and blend seamlessly with the other ingredients. Bring the stew back to a gentle boil, ensuring everything is well incorporated. As a finishing touch, sprinkle a generous amount of fresh cilantro over the top, adding a burst of freshness and vibrant color.

Your Peruvian Beef Stew is now ready to be savored and enjoyed. Ladle the hearty stew into bowls, making sure to distribute the tender beef, flavorful potatoes, and enticing broth. Take a moment to appreciate the rich flavors and the comforting warmth of each spoonful. Let the culinary journey to Peru unfold as you indulge in this exquisite and satisfying dish.
