  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 large carrots, sliced
  • 2 celery stalks, sliced

  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)

Instructions

  1. Prepare the Beef:
  • Season the beef chunks with salt, pepper, paprika, thyme, and rosemary.
  • In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  • Brown the beef chunks on all sides, about 5-7 minutes. Remove the beef and set aside.
  1. Cook the Vegetables:
  • In the same pot, add the chopped onion and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes.

  1. Combine and Simmer:
  • Return the browned beef chunks to the pot.
  • Add the beef broth, water, and bay leaves. Stir to combine.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover and simmer for 1.5 to 2 hours, or until the beef is tender.
  1. Cook the Rice:
  • Once the beef is tender, add the rice to the pot. Stir to ensure the rice is evenly distributed.
  • Cover and cook on low heat for about 20 minutes, or until the rice is cooked and has absorbed most of the liquid.
  1. Finish the Dish:
  • Add the frozen peas and stir to combine. Cook for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  1. Serve:
  • Remove the bay leaves.
  • Garnish with freshly chopped parsley before serving.
