Happy Summer everyone! I hope you are enjoying the warm weather. My kids are out school, so my schedule is quite different than during the school year when I am shuttling the kids’ to and from schools. So now that I have a bit more time to spend in the office, I am trying to post new recipes more often again, while I continue to translate recipes for the Spanish language area of the site.
Today I want to share the recipe for Sobrebarriga Sudada, a popular dish in my house growing up. Sudado is a very typical Colombian dish that can be found in nearly every region of the country. It can be made with any meat (sudado de res – beef, sudado de albóndigas – meatballs, sudado de pollo – chicken – sudado de pescado – fish, etc.), along with potatoes, yuca, vegetables, and spices in a delicious sauce. This classic dish has many different interpretations, but no matter the differences in recipes, it is usually accompanied by white rice.
Whenever I talk to my mom in Colombia, I ask what is she making for lunch or dinner. A couple of weeks ago she told me she was making Sobrebarriga Sudada, which immediately triggered a craving and I just had to make it too!
This dish took me back to my childhood. It’s very easy to make and very comforting. I usually don’t like leftovers, but this is one of the dishes I look forward to eat the next day.
