I had tried Carne Guisada before - and not been able to find an "easy" recipe. So, I came up with my own.

How to Make My version of Carne Guisada


  • 1In a large bowl, combine stew meat, flour, cumin, onion powder and garlic powder. Stir to coat well.
  • 2Coat bottom of frying pan with oil. Sear the meat in small batches making sure that it is browned all over.
  • 3When meat is seared, place in slow cooker.
  • 4Pour excess oil out of the frying pan (if any is left). Add onion to the pan stirring constantly to work all the brown bits from the meat off of the pan. Once the onion is transparent, add a little of the water to the pan to deglaze. Pour onto meat in slow cooker.
  • 5Add remaining water, gravy mixes, rotel tomatoes and green chili's.
  • 6Allow to cook on high heat in the slow cooker for 6-8 hours.
  • 7Serve on flour tortillas.

    I always make sure to have shredded cheese, guacamole, sour cream and green onion ready to serve with it.
  • 8For sides, I will make a pan of pinto beans and plain white rice. If you have leftovers, this is also really good served over the rice or egg noodles the next day.
  • 9If you like spicier food, you can add fresh jalapeno or use the spicier rotel tomatoes.
