1. Pre-marinate the beef pieces in the Worcestershire sauce. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to an hour.
2. In a heavy stock pot, over medium high heat, add the vegetable oil and saute the garlic, onions and celery. Add the Spanish chorizo slices for 1 to 2 minutes to flavor the oil, then remove the chorizos and set aside.
3. Add the beef chunks, and pan sear for about 5 to 8 minutes till beef gets brown.
4. Add the tomato sauce and paste. Pour in the beef broth and season with salt and pepper. Let the broth boil for 1 to 2 minutes, then lower heat to a slow simmer. Cover pot and cook on slow fire till beef chunks are soft and fork-tender for about 2 hours.
5. Towards the end of the cooking, add the potatoes, green beans and carrots. Cook them for about 20 minutes till they soften and blend in the tomato sauce flavors. Lastly add the cabbage, and the chorizos. Garnish with chopped parsley. Serve hot with boiled saba and rice.
