Beef Recipes

Puerto Rican Sancocho Soup| This Puerto Rican beef stew recipe is a hearty soup recipe with chunks of tender beef, root vegetables and more!

Soup recipes are a hit around here. Everyone loves our sopa de salchichon (salami soup recipe) and our Puerto Rican chicken noodle soup recipe. Now we are sharing a Puerto Rican sancocho recipe that is to be enjoyed year round on cool rainy days!

Growing up my mother would make this on cold winter days. I would soak white rice into the bowl to coat with all of the broth! My aunt Carmen would make this in the summer, and even if it was 90 degrees out, I would squirt some hot sauce on top and eat my bowl of sancocho as if it was snowing out! This soup can truly be enjoyed year round.

What is sancocho soup?

Sancocho soup is a Latin American inspired beef stew that has root vegetables that are common to those countries (think Cuba, Puerto Rico, etc). Each country has their own variation and today I’m sharing with you an adaptation of my mother’s Puerto Rican sancocho recipe. Sancocho is typically served with a side of white rice and chunks of ripe avocado.

  • 3 sprigs of fresh thyme

  • 6-8 cups of low sodium beef broth

🥕 Root Vegetables

Root vegetables is what makes sets sancocho apart from beef stew. You will still have your common potatoes, carrots, and celery commonly found in beef stew. 

Root vegetables and Latin vegetables used in sancocho:

  • yautia (English word is taro)
  • yuca (cassava)
  • plantains (Make sure you use green plantains, the yellow ones are sweet and not to be used here.)
  • calabaza (A West Indian pumpkin, or you can swap with any winter squash.)
  • yam (ñame)
  • corn 

These root vegetables are commonly found in Latin and Asian supermarkets.

Goya also sells a bag filled with peeled and chopped frozen sancocho root vegetables. These root vegetables are also known as vianda by the Hispanic community.

🥩 Meats

Puerto Rican sancocho typically only has one cut of beef in the soup. But other cultures have up to 7 cuts of meat used in their sancocho!

Here is what kind meat Puerto Rican sancocho uses:

  • Chuck Beef
  • Round Beef

Really, any kind of boneless beef or cut of meat that can be cubed into like 2 inch pieces.

Additional meat options:

  • pork for stews
  • pork ribs
  • chicken breasts 
  • beef for stews
  • sausages
  • goat meat
  • chorizo

🧂 Seasonings

The secret to the best sancocho soup recipe is seasoning each layer

It begins with seasoning the beef with my go-to Puerto Rican seasonings such as:

  • salt
  • pepper
  • oregano
  • garlic powder

This is the base of almost all of my meat recipes. (It starts here!)

Another important component to making the best sancocho recipe is with using homemade sofrito!

Amazon actually sells a pre-made sancocho seasoning packet for an easy sancocho recipe!

Puerto Rican homemade sofrito is a blend of:

  • peppers 
  • onions
  • garlic
  • herbs
  • seasonings

🔪 Instructions

How do you make sancocho?

To make Puerto Rican sancocho soup traditionally, it’s made in a large pot over the stove and cooked for a few hours. For this recipe, I’m showing you how I made sancocho in the Instant Pot to save time. I will also show you how to make it on the stove.

💭 Top tips

  • Root vegetables have a rough skin that can be intimidating to peel or cut off. You can peel root vegetables easily with both a potato peeler or a small sharp knife. Remember, the skin of root vegetables is like a potato in the sense that it is not thick!
  • Want to learn how to peel plantains? This plantain recipe post has a step by step guide on how to peel a plantain.
  • No homemade sofrito? Use Goya’s sofrito found in the frozen aisle section. Or just chop up half of a red pepper, green bell pepper, onion, 3 cloves of garlic, and ¼ cup of cilantro and add it to a food processor for a quick and easy sofrito recipe. 
  • Thicken your soup by letting the excess broth evaporate by pressing the saute mode for 20 minutes after the sancocho is cooked, or removing the lid on stove top. Cook it for about twenty minutes until the broth has thickened. (Check often to keep it from burning!)

🍚 Side dishes

Traditionally, white rice is served with sancocho with a slice of ripe avocado on the side!
