ingredients

directions

  • Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium high heat, and cook beef until evenly brown.
  • Pour off excess fat and then stir in tomato paste, beef broth and water.
  • Season with garlic, chili powder, cumin, black pepper, salt and serrano peppers.
  • Reduce heat, and simmer (or place in a crockpot on low setting) for 8 to 12 hours--the longer you allow it to cook, the more tender the beef will be.
  • Dissolve cornstarch in a small amount of water, and stir into simmering stew until thickened, about 5 minutes.
  • Serve with Mexican rice and/or homemade tortillas.

    Very good. We made a couple of changes. I use one jalepeno (what we had) but took out most of the seeds (less heat). Used a whole can of beef broth and left out the water. And used a little jalepeno juice from a jar of pickled jalepenos. We served it with bean, rice, and flour tortillas. I liked making a burrito out of it. So good!! We will make it again. Thank you!

    Great recipe Miller! I browned my meat then made it in the crockpot. The only change I made to the recipe was to use 4 chili peppers, since we like spicy foods. It was very spicy, but so tasty. I just served it over white rice with broccoli! I'll certainly be making this again! Thanks for posting this great recipe!

    This was easy to make, my kind of recipe. I browned the meat(london broil) and then put it & everything else in the crockpot. The flavor of the sauce was wonderful, DH even said so!! I served it with Mexican rice and steamed zuccini. I doubled the recipe so will have left overs for burritos tonight. Thanks Miller
