How to make it

  • Season steak with Adobo.
  • In large skillet, heat oil on medium high, brown meat on both sides, remove and keep warm.
  • Lower heat to medium, add garlic, onion and green pepper, cook-stirring often for about 10 minutes.
  • Stir in black pepper and tomato sauce and cook, stirring often for about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the sofrito, water, sazon and bouillon and bring to a boil.
  • Return the meat to the pan, cover, lower the heat, and simmer for 45 minutes, stirring it occasionally.
  • Add in the capers and olives, continue to simmer covered, until the meat is tender and shreds easily.
  • This should take about 1-1/2 hours.
  • You can add more water 1/4 cup at a time if the sauce gets too dry.
  • To serve, shred the meat with 2 forks and mix back into sauce.

    Instead of buying a boring sofrito from the supermarket and then still having to add onions, peppers, garlic and tomatoes use 12 oz of Old Havana Foods cooking base (sofrito). Here is their website:
    It works well in any dish that uses a sofrito!
