The secret to tender beef asado: slow cooking the beef with all the ingredients.
2 tablespoons cooking oil
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 large onion, chopped
1 kilo beef, (use brisket), sliced into chunks
1 200-gram pack tomato sauce
3 pieces dried bay leaf
2 tablespoons soy sauce
3-5 pieces star anise
3 medium bell pepper, sliced thinly
1 cup water
salt, to taste
In a pre-heated pot with oil, saute the garlic until brown then add the onions and cook for 3 to 5 minutes.
Add the beef and cook until all sides of the meat are brown.
Once the meat is browned, add the tomato sauce, soy sauce, bay leaves, and star anise and simmer for 10 minutes.
Add water to make the meat tender and season with salt and pepper.
Once the meat is tender and the sauce is thick (approximately cooking it for 30-40 minutes), add the bell peppers and cook for another 10 minutes.
