Carne Guisada

Danielle Matthews


Easy recipe I found online to cook for my husband, his favorite dish! Serve on flour tortillas or rice with a side dish of sweet cornbread! (I added a little more flour at the end to thicken it since we are putting it in burrito shells this time and some more spicy seasonings to spice it up)

How to Make Carne Guisada


  • 1Combine beef, potatoes, onion, peppers, and garlic in a large bowl. In a small bowl, mix together the flour, chili powder (i used hot mexican chili powder since we like spicy food), cumin, and salt. Toss the beef mixture with the flour mixture until evenly coated. Place the mixture into a slow cooker, and pour in enough beef broth to barely cover the meat. If you don't have quite enough, you can fill the rest of the way with water.
  • 2Cook on Low until the beef is tender, 6 to 8 hours.
