A popular Spanish-influenced dish that is so quick and easy to prepare. It may be served as a soup or stew depending on the amount of liquid added. Absolutely delicious with rice!


  • 1½ tablespoons oil
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 10 shallots or 1 onion, diced
  • 4 small tomatoes, diced
  • 12 oz (350 g) ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce (patis)
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 4 cups (1 liter) water
  • Parsley or coriander leaves (cilantro), coarsely chopped, to garnish
How to Make It
  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan and stir-fry the garlic until golden brown. Add the shallots or onion and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Then add the tomatoes and cook until they soften.
  2. Add the ground beef and season with the fish sauce and pepper. Stir-fry for 5 minutes to brown the meat. Add the potatoes and water, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, over low heat until the beef and potatoes are cooked, about 20 minutes (add more water if needed or if you prefer a more soupy dish).
  3. Ladle the stew into a large serving bowl and garnish with fresh parsley or coriander leaves. Serve hot with white rice.
