Steak and Beans

Black and Red Beans are as striking as tasty on a bed of White Rice
Don't skip any of the spices. Try to use homemade sofrito (easy to make and you can freeze it.) Don't waste money buying the beef broth when you can brew it on the stove while you prepare the rest. If caught short in the freezer, you can substitute stew meet for the round steak just make sure you cube it down to size."


2 lb. Round Steak, cubed into 1/2 inch to 1 inch pieces
1 can (15.5 oz.) Black Beans
1 can (15.5 oz.) Dark Red Kidney Beans
