Crock Pot Carne Guisada

READY IN: 6hrs 5mins
Recipe by Melanie2590

We love carne guisada around our house. This is a really easy recipe! FYI: I always go to my local meat market and have them cut a good looking rump roast into stew meat. It saves me the time of having to cube the meat myself and that way i get to pick out the best cut of meat. Also, if you like spicy, leave the seeds in one or two of the jalapenos. **UPDATE- I have recently improved this recipe to a point that I almost removed some of the original parts from what I had posted. Instead, I am adding options for the meat and cooking method. Please let me know which method you used if you rate this.

Easy!!! I use recipe exactly as stated. I use the Dutch oven method and it is delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. *METHOD 1: If using rump roast, simply place all ingredients into crock pot. Whisk corn starch in with a bit of beef stock before adding to the pot.
  2. Cook on low for 6-7 hours.
  3. For best results, stir all ingredients about 1-2 hours into cooking.
  4. *METHOD 2: If using chuck roast, brown both sides of the roast in a pot before putting it in the crock pot. My new favorite thing to do is to completely omit the crock pot. I brown the chuck roast in a dutch oven, then add remaining ingredients and cook it in a 300 degree oven for about 4 hours, or until the meat is so tender that it pulls apart easily with a fork.
  5. The tenderness of method 2 (with dutch oven) is absolutely mouth-watering!
  6. If using a chuck roast, don't forget to pick out all the pieces of fat before serving. You wouldn't want to bite into a piece of that!
  7. Try it whichever way you like, you won't be disappointed!
