"Use any cut of steak when making this easy beef stew. Marinated in oil, oregano, vinegar, and onions, this is a great meal for a busy weeknight. A staple in Puerto Rican cooking. Serve with white rice and tostones. Water can be used in place of beef stock if desired."

  1. In a large resealable bag, combine the steak, olive oil, garlic, oregano, sazon seasoning, onions, vinegar, beef stock, and salt. Seal and shake to mix. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or up to a couple of days.
  2. When you are ready to cook, dump the entire contents of the bag into a large deep skillet. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until the beef is fork tender, about 40 minutes.

Very easy to make. Meat was very moist. I cut a london broil that I didn't have time to grill. The only downside was that the vinegar gave it such a tangy taste. I had to add a pinch or two of s...
