Beef, potatoes and olive oil stew
- 1 kg diced beef (preferably shank)
- 3-4 medium sized potatoes, chopped
- 2 cups olive oil
- ½ cup wine
- Salt, pepper
Add the meat in a pot with as much water as needed to just cover it and let it cook for a few minutes. As soon as the meat starts foaming, remove the foam with a skimmer and turn down the heat. Cover the pot and keep the meat cooking with the same amount of water on a low heat. Add the oil and let the meat cook for approximately 40 minutes on very low heat. Then add the potatoes, salt and a cup of very hot water and let everything cook together until the potatoes and meat are tender. Add the pepper once everything is cooked, take off the heat and serve.
