When asked my favorite dish in Peru, without hesitation, I explain that there are favorites in each region, but that Seco is indeed my favorite Criolla dish.
If you are looking for a stew rich in flavor, this is a top choice! The short ribs are braised in a dark beer sauce for enough time to make them soft and tender. You could use a different cut of beef if you prefer.
Beer in cake? Certainly! This is a delicious combination of flavors and easily comes together if you can get your hands on a box of cake mix, something not always easy to come by here in Peru.
Sometimes it seems all recipes are considered stew, but Estofado Norteño de Carne is one that seems to stand out to me. I think it is the splash of vinegar in the marinade. Nevertheless, this is a delicious stew that I enjoy making for visitors and family alike!
Arroz con Pollo varies country by country and each seems to have it’s own color, even with the same name. This version marries cilantro with dark beer – a combination I am rather fond of!
