We loved this one. I did add beef bouillon instead of just water and was a bit salty so won't do that next time. This is so good, served with cilantro rice and black refried beans. What a great Sun. meal.

I am originally from South Texas--this recipe reminds me so much of the wonderful Tex-Mex foods and flavors of that area. Delicioso! Thanks for posting, PanNan!

Oh WOW! This is the best Guisada I have had....thank you for the recipe! Much better than any other recipes I have tried before. Made according to directions except added a little more garlic and paprika, just because I could. Highly recommended!

I am from South Texas and can honestly say, this recipe is simply awesome. We use top sirloin - probably overkill - and add serrano's for added heat. We serve it with freshly made flour and corn tortillas. Awesome!

This is really awesome! My husband and I both really loved this. I am making this for the second time today. I have had Sylvia's Carne guisada and this if very close. Thanks for sharing. :)

This was all right.For some reason though I expected much more flavor to it and the flavor I got a lot was from the chili which wasn't so much to my like.I live in South Texas and was personally looking for another flavor.It did save the night though and we had something I had not made before so thank you so much.

I have lived in Texas for over twenty years and never learned to cook carne guisada before. I tried this recipe and it was such a big hit in my home, my husband craves it. The recipe is so flavorful and it is very easy to make. I add some comino to mine for a little extra flair. Thanks for posting!!

Very good and enjoyed by everyone. I followed the recipe to the letter, which I never do! I would have liked a more tender cut of meat, so I have to think about a change for next time. The recipe was beautifully written--not all recipes on Zaar are so clear and easy to follow. I served it over white rice with refried beans on the side.
