Pastel de Chochlo is basically a casserole of beef and chicken with a top crust of pureed corn kernels. It's one of the world's great one-pot recipes.
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 2 cups lean beef, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 12 stuffed olives
- 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, halved, and cooked by steaming or sauteing
- 1/4 cup raisins
- 2 eggs, hard-boiled, each sliced into 4 pieces
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 cups canned corn kernels, pureed
- 3 teaspoons sugar
- 1 egg mixed with 2 tablespoons water for egg wash
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
In a saucepan over medium heat, heat the oil. Add the onions and saute for 1 minute. Add the beef and saute for 2 minutes. Add the paprika, salt and black pepper.
Divide the cooked beef and onion into 4 2-cup heatproof bowls. Place 3 olives into each bowl. Place 1/2 of each half chicken breast into each bowl. Divide the raisins and the hard-boiled eggs among the bowls.
In a saute pan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the pureed corn and 1 teaspoon of the sugar. Pour the pureed corn on top of the contents of the bowls to make a top crust.
Paint the egg wash onto the corn. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of the sugar on top of each bowl and bake for 30 minutes, or until the corn forms a lightly browned crust.
