Peruvian Beef and Noodle Stew

  • FAST
  1. 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  2. 1 1/2 pounds beef sirloin, cut into 1-inch cubes
  3. 1 large onion, cut into 1/2-inch dice
  4. 1/2 red bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch dice
  5. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  6. 5 cups beef stock or low-sodium broth
  7. 1 large baking potato, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch dice
  8. 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  9. 1 bay leaf
  10. 4 ounces dried fideos noodles or spaghettini, crushed
  11. Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  1. In a soup pot, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil. Add the sirloin and cook over high heat until browned all over; transfer to a plate.
  2. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil in the pot. Add the onion, bell pepper and garlic and cook over moderately high heat until softened, about 4 minutes. Add the stock, potato, cumin and bay leaf. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes.
