    stimied's Note:

    A mexican style beef stew. You can also serve this over rice or noodles, but I prefer it on tortillas like a burrito. This doubles and freezes well.

      Add stock, chili powder, comino, salt, and pepper.

    6. 6

    8. 8

      Thank you. I finally found The Carne Guisada taste that I've been searching for. So simple too. I wouldn't change anything because once I added the roux, it wasn't too saucey any more. I ate it with flour tortilla and nothing else.

      This was great! Being a native Texan, this was a welcome dish. The next time I make it, though, I'll cut down on the liquid. There was too much gravy for the amount of meat. Served it with hot white rice, and frijoles al chara.
