Beef Giniling (Carenderia Style)

What I liked in this dish is the color and taste, at first I thought it has tomato sauce but I was wrong, it is the annatto or atsuete that made the color looked deep orange and the aroma from annatto will boost your appetite. Try this recipe.

1/2 kilo ground beef
1 onion diced
1 tomato diced
3 cloves garlic
2 potatoes (diced)
1/4 kilo green beans/Baguio beans
2 carrots (diced)
1 bell pepper any color
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon atsuete powder (annatto)
1 beef cube
water- just enough to cook everything
 cornstarch to thicken ( dissolved in water)

1. Saute the garlic and onion then add the ground beef and let simmer until the pinkish color of the meat is gone.
2. Add the annatto ( atsuete) powder, beef cube, soy sauce, salt and pepper then simmer  until the color and flavor blends well then add water and bring to boil and simmer.
3.Add the rest of the ingredients then simmer until half cooked, thicken with cornstarch then simmer until done..
4. Serve with rice.

You can add green peas for this recipe
