Simple Beef Mechado

Mechado can be cooked with fats or marinating sauce or both, this is different from menudo and caldereta because mechado's sauce is lighter compare to the other 2 dishes. This is just a simple beef mechado.

1/2 kilo beef ( marinate with 1/4 cup soy sauce and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice or calamnsi)
2 potatoes ( diced or cubed)
2 carrots ( diced or cubed)
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1 small onion
4 cloves garlic
Spring onion
salt and pepper to taste

1. Saute garlic and onion, add the beef without the marinating sauce, saute for 2 minutes then cover and simmer for few minutes.
2. Add the marinating sauce and tomato sauce, simmer until the beef is tender. ( Add water if necessary)
3. Add the carrots and the potatoes, simmer for few minutes, check the taste then add salt and pepper if necessary. Cover until the vegetables are cooked.
4. Increase the heat then add the spring onion. After 30 seconds remove from heat. Do not cover to prevent the vegetable from discoloraion.
5. Serve it hot and with a smile :-).
