Hello.
00:02
Hello.
00:02
Hi, Stephanie.
00:03
How are you?
00:05
So, I'm trying to make you already, you know, you have to use
00:11
a pressure cooker, right?
00:12
Yes.
00:13
Hopefully I don't die.
00:16
Can you tell me everything I need?
00:23
You're going to need £2 of meat for beef stew.
00:27
Two tablespoons of olive oil, one tablespoon of bijou, half
00:31
a teaspoon of pepper.
00:33
Then saltier taste two bay leaves, one small white onion,
00:37
three garlic cloves, one packet of saa, one green pepper,
00:42
one can of tomato sauce.
00:44
Half a cup of vino seco, one cup of water potatoes.
00:48
How however many you like?
00:49
And then olives or capers depending if you like them.
00:52
Well, I used to like capers.
00:53
I prefer olives and half a teaspoon of cumin.
00:57
One teaspoon of oregano.
00:59
All right.
00:59
That's way too many ingredients already know.
01:02
OK.
01:03
What is the first step?
01:05
Ok.
01:06
You first uh, get your pressure cooker and put the olive oil
01:09
just enough to cover, you know, the bottom of the pot.
01:11
You put it on medium heat.
01:13
OK?
01:13
Then you put the meat inside and you saute it till the meat is
01:17
not pink anymore.
01:18
And how long does that take because I'm hungry, you'll see
01:21
you'll be sauteing it and, and in the meantime, you're going
01:25
to be starting to cut the green peppers, the onions.
01:28
My eyes are watery because of the freaking onion.
01:31
I know that happens all the time.
01:32
I do not like this.
01:34
And then the garlic, OK?
01:36
And then when the meat is no longer take it out with a big spoon
01:40
and place it on a plate or a bowl.
01:42
And then you add the green peppers, the onions, the garlic
01:46
and then you salt it till the onions are translucent.
01:48
How long does that take?
01:49
About a minute or so?
01:51
A little more?
01:51
And then you add the tomato sauce, OK?
01:54
And you stir it for a minute and then you go ahead and add the
01:57
meat again and then you add the salt to your taste, the pepper
02:02
to be the bay leaf, the cumin, the oregano and the, and should
02:09
I be stirring in between all of those or do I just add it all in
02:13
and then stir it, stir it after everything is going in, you
02:17
start, you just pour it and, and be stirring at the same time
02:20
And then after that, you add the on the water and you cut the
02:24
potatoes in round slices, not too thin.
02:27
And then you add it to the pot and then you add the olives or the
02:30
capers depending which one you like the one or both.
02:33
I said, I always liked them.
02:34
I actually like them too.
02:36
So I'm gonna add capers and then you close the lid, make sure
02:40
it close, you know, correctly tight and put a little pressure
02:43
weight on top of the pressure cooker and then you set it on high
02:46
and then when it starts to whistle, then you lower to medium
02:50
heat for about 40 minutes.
02:52
Do not open the lid or it will explode.
02:55
Great or it will explode.
02:58
That's what you want to hear when you're cooking your favorite
03:00
dish.
03:01
Because you have to just make sure all the air is out and the
03:03
way you do it is by putting a spoon under the weight gently.
03:07
And that way you lift it just a little bit and you can hear all
03:10
the air sizzling out and once you don't hear any more air, then
03:14
it's safely ready to remove the weight and then the lift.
03:17
Ok.
03:17
How did it turn out?
03:19
It looks good.
03:20
I don't know if it's gonna taste good.
03:22
It probably will.
03:23
It has must little spices in there.
03:25
Yeah.
03:25
Except I made it.
03:26
It's in your jeans.
03:28
It's not jee, are in there somewhere.
03:30
It's not in my jeans.
03:31
Well, thankfully, Cuban food is all, throw everything in
03:34
something and mix it and then it'll come out good because of
03:37
the flavors.
03:38
Exactly.
03:39
I don't know if I'm gonna make this in a pressure cooker again
03:41
It's too much pressure.
03:45
That was so cheesy.
03:46
Let me know how it turned out?
03:48
Ok, I'll take a picture.
03:50
Ok.
03:50
All right.
03:51
Love you.
03:51
Bye bye.
04:01
Really.
