  2. Layer the ingredients in a casserole such that tomato is at the bottom, then marinated beef, garlic and onion at the top of the whole ensemble. This way, flavors lock in the beef that’s in the middle of the assembly.
  3. Pour in about 3 cups of water to help liquefy and wilt the tomatoes at the bottom. Bring to a moderate simmer.
  4. Once drying out, continue pouring in water until beef tenderness is achieved.
  5. 5. Add the bell peppers, laurel leaf, sili and the pitted olives. Mix in the tomato sauce. Set aside.
  6. Meantime, deep fry the potatoes.
