Boliche: Pot Roast Recipe Cuban Style

Submitted by JDiazAsper on 11/14/2010 – 9:27 pm5 Comments

When ever I am really busy, stressed and burned out, I turn to cooking. I especially like to cook for friends. So this Saturday even though I didn’t have time to cook I did it anyway. I am now way behind but happy.

I started cooking at 3pm which is way late for Boliche (Cuban pot roast). I like my pot roast to fall to pieces. My Husband prefers it a bit less falling apart so this is a personal choice. I would go for cooking for 6 hours minimum  if you like the falling apart version.

Ingredients (serves about 10):

  • 5 pounds of beef (i used bottom round)
  • 4 tbsps of olive oil
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 4 onions
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 beers
  • 1/cup chicken broth


  1. Make a marinade for the beef. Put lemon juice, 2 tbsps of olive oil , garlic cloves, herbs , salt and pepper in blender. Coat the beef with marinade and let sit overnight or at least 1 hour in a pot that you can cook in.
  2. Take beef and either grill it or brown it in a new pan with 1 tbsp olive oil. I like the smokey flavor of the grill.
  3. Add oil to the pan were you marinaded the beef and add the onions. Cook till very brown.
  4. Add back the beef with 2 beers and 1/2 cup of broth. Cook high till it boils then lower and then cover simmer for as long as you can (6 hours is what i do). Add the extra broth if the juices run low .
  5. Make sure to let sit and serve with plenty of sauce . The best part!

Enjoy with white rice and some black beans.
