Foraging with Alexis Nikole Nelson.
Seco de carne is a classic Peruvian meat and vegetable stew, and a perfect contender for cooking in an Instant Pot, either quickly under pressure or using the slow-cooker function. Fresh cilantro is a defining flavor of the dish. We blend an entire bunch of cilantro with jalapeños, a stand-in for harder-to-find Peruvian chilies, then stir in the puree at the very end so both the flavor and color remain bold and bright. Use a crisp, quaffable beer that will play nicely with the other flavors in the stew. Serve with rice and beans.
tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
medium red onion, chopped
