Huatia (Peruvian Slow-cooked Beef with Herbs)

3/4 c White Vinegar
1 tb Ground Cumin
3 Fresh Mirasol Or Other Hot Chilis; Seeded And Minced
4 tb Vegetable Oil
Salt
4 lb Boneless Chuck Or Round Steak; Cut In Large Chunks
4 md Yellow Onions; Peeled And Quartered
1 bn Fresh Mint
1 bn Fresh Thyme
1 bn Fresh Rosemary
1 bn Fresh Oregano
1 bn Fresh Flat-Leaf Parsley
1 bn Fresh Cilantro
6 Sweet Potatoes

Place vinegar, cumin, minced chiles, and oil in a blender. Add 1/2 cup water and puree. Season with salt.

Place meat in large bowl. Add vinegar mixture and mix thoroughly. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place onions in a single layer in a large Dutch oven. Scatter mint, thyme, rosemary, oregano, parsley, and cilantro on top, then add meat with marinade and whole chile. Cover and cook in oven, stirring occasionally, until meat is tender and marinade and meat juices have combined to form an herb-perfumed broth, 2-3 hours.

Meanwhile, peel potatoes and place in a second large Dutch oven. Season with salt, cover, and bake until tender, about 1 hour. (Potatoes can also be wrapped in aluminum foil and roasted for about 1 hour.) Remove huatia and potatoes from oven. Season to taste with salt. Spoon meat and potatoes onto plates. Discard herbs, then spoon broth over meat and serve.
