How To Make Uruguayan Guiso

The Uruguayan guiso is a kind of stew popular in Uruguay. It’s made of beef chucks, chorizo sausages, a variety of vegetables, and Ditalini pasta.

Cooking: 25 minutes
Total: 55 minutes

  • 2tbspolive oil

  • 4clovesgarlicminced

  • 1cupfrozen peasthawed
  • 1cupcooked lentils
  • ½cupchopped fresh parsley


  1. Place chorizo in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook, turning occasionally and pricking each link with a fork to release some of the fat, until browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove sausages and slice when cool enough to handle. Set aside.

  2. Heat oil in a large pot over high heat.

  3. Add beef and cook until browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Add reserved sausage slices, onion, leek, and garlic and saute until onion is translucent about 3 minutes.

  4. Reduce heat to medium-low and stir in butternut squash, potatoes, and carrots. Add water and tomato sauce. If vegetables are not covered with liquid, add more water to cover.

  5. Add bouillon cube, oregano, cumin, salt, and pepper and bring to boil.

  6. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, until stew thickens up, about 1 hour.

  7. Add pasta, peas, lentils, and parsley. Cook until pasta is tender yet firm to the bite, 8 to 10 minutes. Add more water until desired consistency.
