AMAZING Beef Dish recipe using KETCHUP!!

Our father has made this dish for awhile now, it's kind of a special dish whenever we have some beef to cook.  It's a 'stew' like dish and uses only ketchup!!  Cooking with ketchup is super easy because all you do is simmer it down until it tenderizes the meat and the ketchup combo makes the stew extremely savory!  For this recipe you can use any kind of beef, but it's usually made with short ribs.        


1.5 lbs of Beef Short Ribs/ OR Beef Stew Meat (for this recipe I used Beef Stew but it's a lot easier with Short Ribs.
1/2 Medium Onion
1 Garlic
Salt and Pepper
Large Bottle of Ketchup (44oz bottle), You will use 3/4 of the bottle of ketchup.
2 tablespoons of oil

Pan of Choice: Wok
Serves: 4-5 people

1. In a large pan add the oil, and sauté the garlic and onion on medium heat until the onions are transparent.  

2. Add a little salt and pepper to taste and add the beef to the pan and create a light sear (till it gets brown).  If you are using short ribs make sure to do both sides, if your using beef stew, browning just two sides of the cube is fine.  

3.  Add the ketchup to the pan until it covers most of the beef. Lower the heat to medium/low heat and simmer the beef and ketchup. 

4.  The ketchup will start to get dark red and evaporate slightly.  Once the ketchup tastes less sweet and more savory then its about done!!
