 Ingredients List

  • 1/3 c Olive oil
  • 5 lb Beef brisket; cut 1/2" cubes
  • 2 lg Onions; coarsely chopped
  • 6 lg Garlic cloves; fine chop
  • 2 Bell peppers
  • 2 tb Dried Basil
  • 1 Bay leaves
  • 2 tb Ground Red mild chili

Heat the oil or melt the lard in a large heavy casserole over medium heat.
Pat the brisket dry and add it to the casserole. Stir the beef until it is
quite brown on all sides. Remove it from the casserole and set aside. Add
more oil or lard to the casserole if needed, then add the onions and garlic
and cook until the onions are translucent. Stir in the green peppers,
basil, bay leaf, ground chile, cayenne pepper, caribe, and cumin. Cook for
about 1 minute, then add the corn flour (masa harina) and cook 1 or 2
minutes longer. Return the brisket to the casserole and add the tomatoes
and their liquid. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer,
uncovered, for 2 hours. Stir occasionally. Stir in the salt and black
pepper. Taste and adjust seasonings. Add the coffee and simmer, uncovered,
for 1-1/2 hours longer.
