One of my favorite Peruvian dishes to make for my family and friends is seco de carne. The origins of this classic cilantro beef stew go way back as it has both Arab and Spanish influences. This dish is hearty and filling and has a wonderful herbaceous flavor. It's perfect for a cold rainy-day lunch, or serve it as Sunday dinner.
This seco de carne recipe can go straight into your slow cooker to cook and serve, or you can combine all of the ingredients in a large zip-lock bag and store in the freezer for two to three weeks. This stress-free and easy-to-make meal needs only 10 minutes of prep. Once you've bagged everything up, there's nothing else to add after freezing. Beef and potatoes make this dish hearty and filling, while the cilantro marinade gives it an amazing pungent herb flavor. Serve over steamed white rice, and you have a delicious and complete meal!
