What kind of dish is this?
This is a stew from the Republic of Chile made from beef, onions, tomatoes and corn.
Tomaticán＝Tomato and dried roasted meat
With the arrival of Europeans in Latin America in the 16th century, the ingredients brought in by them were combined with the ingredients native to Latin America to create a variety of dishes.
Tomatican is one of them.
It was born here when beef brought by Spanish, tomatoes and corns native to Latin America were cooked together.
Tomatican is a dish mainly eaten in Chile and western Argentina, but similar dishes are found in Latin American countries.
These dishes have been eaten not only by settlers and indigenous people, but also by merchants moving around, farmers moving along with herds of livestock, and many others.
I think that people who live on the move and spread it to neighboring countries have spread, and many similar dishes have been created.
※Tomatican is one of the variations derived from the dish called Charquicán.
It’s a simple dish that you just stir fry and simmer a little, but it was really delicious.
Because, are the ingredients such as tomato and salt compatible with each other?
I don’t know the characteristics of each ingredient, but I am glad that I was able to feel the history by studying and making such dishes.
Moreover, it’s delicious.
It’s a dish that you eat with rice, bread, tortillas, and so on, so it’s delicious to eat with any of them.
