Beef stew with noodles recipe
Guisos or stews are a traditional winter dish in Uruguay. There are several different kinds of guisos and each guiso will vary from one cook to other. There are different beef stews; here we will share the recipe for a beef stew with noodles.
For this recipe you will need the following ingredients (the amounts depend on how many portions you want): oil, salt, (and pepper if you wish), beef (cut in small cubes of around 1 or 1 and 1/2 cm2), bacon, carrots, potatoes (all these 3 ingredients cut in small pieces of same size than the beef), chopped onion, tomatoes sauce, pre-cooked peas, and middle size noodles.
How to prepare it?: Put some oil and the chopped onions in a saucepan. Fry the onions with the fire set to low until they start looking transparent. Then add the meat and bacon and fry for about 2 minutes. Next, add the tomato sauce, hot water (to dilute the tomato sauce a bit) and salt, and wait until it boils. Then add the potatoes, carrots and noodles. There should be enough diluted tomato sauce for the noodles to absorb and cook. Turn the fire off when the noodles are ready (make sure they are not too much done since they will continue cooking a bit more after you turn the fire off) and add the peas. Wait 5 minutes and is ready to be eaten.
