Recipe Ingredients for Alcatre (Portuguese Roast)

2 lbs. Flank Steak (or Lean Chuck Roast)
1 onion, medium, chopped
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
12 g bacon, slices (optional 2 slices)
1/8 cup butter (optional)
2 tbs bay leaves
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tbs. hot sauce, Louisiana
1 tsp. allspice
1/2 tsp. whole cloves
8 oz. tomato sauce
8 oz wine (Joe said white wine but I always used red)
8 oz water
4 cups potatoes, diced

Recipe Directions for Alcatre (Portuguese Roast)

  1. Dice the bacon and fry, then brown the onions and garlic. Next, add all the spices to the pan and melt the butter into it.

  2. Put meat in a crock pot , or in a ceramic, ovenproof pot. Cover the meat with equal parts of water and wine. If cooking in a crockpot, put on high for 1 hour, than turn down to low for about 6-8 hours. If cooking in an oven, cook at 350 degress for 1 hour, then lower to 300 degrees for another 2 hours.

  3. Add diced potatoes to the mix about a half hour before serving.
