Preparation

  1. Season the steak with salt, pepper, and cumin.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of canola oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Add the steak and cook until browned, about 5-6 minutes. Remove the steak from the pot and set aside.
  3. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the pot, then add the onion and sauté until translucent, about 5-6 minutes. Add the garlic and ají amarillo, and sauté for 3 minutes, until fragrant.
  4. Return the steak to the pot, then add the water and bouillon. Mix to dissolve the bouillon powder.
  5. Add the potatoes and carrots. Bring the stew to a simmer, cover, and cook for 10 minutes, or until the potato and carrot are cooked through.
  6. Add the peas and Peruvian corn. Cook for another 5 minutes, or until the peas and corn are cooked through.
  7. Serve the picante de carne with rice and sunny-side up eggs. Sprinkle chopped parsley on top.
  8. Enjoy!
