I love any meat stew and this loco meat stew is simply the best. How can you beat a big dish or protein combined with veggies. The entire family will love this dish.

  • 3 medium Chorizo sausages, sliced
  • 1 pound beef, cubed
  • 1 pound pork ribs, cut into individual chunks
  • 1 small butternut squash, cubed
  • 5 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped
  • 1 medium can of sweet corn, drained
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 medium can of mixed beans, cooked (hominy beans are better)
  • 1 medium medium can of white beans
  • 3 tablespoons parsley, chopped (for garnish)
  1. Add some oil to a pan over medium high heat. Place the meat in and sear on all sides. Sear in batches if you have to. Set aside on a plate. 

  2. Add oil or butter to a Dutch oven or large pot over medium high heat. Place the onion, garlic, and bell peppers in. Saute until the garlic is fragrant. 

  3. Add in the salt, pepper, and paprika. Stir and saute for a couple of minutes. 

  4. Put the meat back in and stir. Don't forget the juices from the plate. Follow the meat by the squash, carrots, and corn. 

  5. Pour the water in, stir, and bring to a boil. Place a lid on and allow to simmer for 10 minutes. 

  6. After 10 minutes, put the beans in and mix. Place the lid back on and allow to simmer for another 10 minutes. 

    You can allow this to simmer longer - up to 3 hours.
  7. Ladle into a bowl, garnish with parsley, and enjoy.
