sunday cooking

20 Sep

Yesterday, I decided to make something for Novio since he often gets homesick and misses Colombian cuisine. After failing miserably at arepas, I went a little easier on myself and made sopa de arroz y carne.

dice 2 large potatoes…then 1.5 lbs of beef

then pour 7 cups of water, 1/2 cup of peas, and 1 chicken buillon cube, salt and pepper, into a large pot with the meat and potatoes 

bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 50 minutes. Then mix in 1/2 cup of rice ( I used Uncle Bens pre cooked so that I didnt have to cook it as long…or use a seperate pot. Gotta keep things simple!). Continue simmering for 5 minutes.

Pour into a bowl and top with fresh cilantro! Im pretty sure I want to put fresh cilantro on everything now its deliccccious…!
