  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa (This is a Grain)
  • 6 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro

Heat oil in a large pot, add shallots and garlic and sauté until soft, about 3 minutes. Add tomato, cumin, 1/4 cup cilantro and cook another 2 minutes. Add beef, water, bullion, carrot, bell pepper, salt and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer on low about 1-1/2 hours, until meat is tender.
