Beef with Cactus Pieces Recipe

Beef with Cactus Pieces Recipes

Ingredients :

900g braising beef, cut into 5cm cubes

30ml corn oil

1 onion, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, chopped

1 or 2 jalapeno chilies, seeded and chopped

115g can nopalitos (cactus pieces), rinsed and drained

2 x 275g tomatillos (Mexican green tomatoes)

50g fresh chopped coriander

beef stock (optional)

salt and freshly ground black pepper

chopped fresh coriander, to garnish

Method :

Pat the beef cubes dry with kitchen paper. Heat the oil in a frying pan and sauté the beef cubes a few at a time, until browned all over. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the beef cubes to a flameproof casserole or pan. Add the onion and garlic to the boil remaining in the frying pan and sauté until the onion is tender. Add more oil if necessary. Add the onions and garlic to the casserole or pan together with the chilies.

Add the nopalitos and tomatillos, with the can juices, to the casserole. Stir in the coriander until well mixed. If more liquid is needed to cover the beef, stir in as much stock as needed. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a slow simmer, cover and cook over a low heat for about 150 minutes or until the beef is very tender. Serve sprinkled with the chopped coriander.
