Carne Guisada is a mexican stew meat... it is one of my favorites when cooked properly. You can eat this in a tortilla or on a plate with rice and beans. Its great with cheese and avacado slices as condiments.

Great for a Mexican meal. We had this, refried beans, quesadillas and Mexican chocolate mousse for dessert. Wow wonderful!

  9. I sometimes take a short cut and dredge and brown the meat in a skillet then throw everything in a crock pot and let simmer on low for 6-8 hours depending on how tender you like the meat. You can also cut down on the water quite a bit when using the crock pot and add water as needed.
