Beef, potatoes, peas, and macaroni are the main ingredients in this traditional Goan Stew Recipe, which also includes a few spices and a bit of pork too!

To make Goan Stew the traditional way, you will need:

500 grams of beef (lean)

Half a kilo of potatoes

250 grams green peas(fresh or frozen)

250 grams of cooked macaroni(pipes only)

150 grams of pork meat and fat(more fat than meat)

2 large onions

3 tablespoons of vinegar

1 tablespoon of ginger-garlic paste

1 teaspoon of black pepper powder

Cooking oil

5 cloves

Salt to taste


1)Cut the beef into small cubes(1/2 inch squares approximately). Marinate the beef cubes with ginger-garlic paste, black pepper powder, salt, and vinegar. Next chop the onions fine. Heat about two tablespoons of oil, add cloves and fry the onions in oil till golden brown. Cut the pork fat and meat into small pieces and add to the sauteed onion. When the pork is cooked, add the beef cubes to the onions and cook till done. 

2)Boil green peas till they are soft but not too mushy. 

3)Toss the cooked macaroni in a bit of butter.

4)Chop the potatoes into small cubes(1/2 inch squares approximately) like the beef and boil slightly till the potatoes are al dente. 

5) And finally, in a large vessel heat about five tablespoons of oil and add to it the cooked potatoes and peas. Toss the potatoes and peas in the oil for about 5 minutes. Then add the cooked beef to it and mix well for a couple of minutes. Lastly add the macaroni and mix well taking care not to break the macaroni. And you are done! Enjoy this delicious Goan Stew Recipe  with a slice of bread!

Bon Appetit

    Looks like a great recipe. I think I’d have to work out a low fat recipe. I think I could make this stew with very little salt as well.
