Instructions

  1. Stir fry beef

    • Heat the oil in a large braising pot over high heat. Toss the beef with the cornstarch and add this to the pot in a single layer. 
    • Let it sear for a minute, then toss in the pot tobrown on all sides, about 5 minutes. 
    • Remove the beef to a plate and reduce the heat to medium.


  2. Simmer vegetables and beef stew

    • Add the onions and sauté until they are translucent, about 5 minutes. 
    • Add the sweet potato, garlic and ginger and stir for a minute. 
    • Add the vinegar and stir (this will pull any tasty, caramelized bits from the bottom of the pan). Add the beef stock, coffee, maple syrup, soy sauce and a little black pepper. 
    • Add back the seared beef and bring everything up to a full simmer.
    • Reduce the heat to a gentle simmer and cover, stirring occasionally and cooking for 90 minutes, until the beef is tender.


Garnish and Serve!

Adjust the seasoning, if needed, and serve with rice.
