5 pounds Angus beef chuck roast, cut into 1-inch cubes

2 cups spicy ketchup 

2/3 cup bottled Caribbean green seasoning

1/2 cup garlic powder

1/2 cup onion powder 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

1 cup canola oil

4 tablespoons sugar 


  1. In a large bowl, combine the beef, ketchup, green seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder and some salt and pepper. Marinate for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat a large pot over high heat. Add the oil and sugar, and cook until the sugar is caramelized. Add the seasoned beef and cook, stirring vigorously, until browned, about 5 minutes. Lower the heat to medium-high and cook undisturbed for another 5 minutes. Slowly add just enough water to cover the beef. Cook for 30 minutes, then lower the heat to a simmer and cook until the meat is tender, about 25 minutes more.
