Puerto Rican Beef

My girlfriend makes a condiment that her Puerto Rican brother in law makes with the majority of their dishes and this stuff is amazingly good. It consists of jalapeno, onion, cilantro, bell pepper, garlic and habanero pepper, all finely chopped. It's not nearly as hot as it sounds, but is bursting with flavor with a kick. So I named this dish 'Puerto Rican Beef'.

Here is what it looks like. Shawn made a big jar last week and I've eaten almost all of it.


Salted a 3lb chuck roast, no other seasonings. Cooked indirect for an hour, temperature unknown...


Then seared on each side for about 4 or 5 minutes (or one beer).




After the sear, I placed the roast overtop of 1 can of chopped tomatoes w/chiles and about 1/2 cup of the pepper mixture mentioned above. Foiled and cooked until tender, approximately 2.5 hours.


After the meat was tender, the flavor was incredible, but a bit on the fresh and spicy side. So I added 1/4 cup of brown sugar and 1 can of Coke Zero. Yes, it sounds weird but I use soda and coffee a lot when braising and it works great. Follow with a little cornstarch slurry to thicken up a bit before serving.



Finished pictures do not serve this dish justice. This was incredibly good, full of flavor and a meal I'm going to repeat sooner than later. If you like Pepper Stout Beef, you will like this!

Looks great Larry, I'm getting ready to make your Enchilada Casserole and the PRB sounds similar.

Re: Puerto Rican Beef

That looks great! I'd bet that condiment would be great over chicken or fish!

Re: Puerto Rican Beef

The mix looks intriguing, could you get us something close to the recipe? Chuck roast is my favorite roast. Looks awesome!

Re: Puerto Rican Beef

Ive also used Dr. Pepper a bunch of times for braising of baking prime rib... Looks really good Larry. I love anything over rice.
