Just finished cooking and eating your Carne Guisada recipe, and from my wife's lips to this email...."My tongue is dancing!" It was a truly delicious meal. I did change a few things: I cooked it for 45 minutes (the carrots and potatoes were cooked through perfectly, added the ingredients as the beef slowly cooked. And I never really measure my spices, I cook to taste, so I simply eye it. Put it over jazmine rice, and wow!
