DIRECTIONS

  • Brown beef well in a large cast iron dutch oven, a heavy stainless steel pot can be used with good results.
  • Add onion and garlic and cook until onions are translucent.
  • Add stock, chili powder, comino, salt, and pepper.
  • Bring to a simmer and cook for 2-3 hours or until beef is very tender.
  • In a separate skillet mix flour and oil together to form a roux.
  • Cook over medium high heat until a dark beige color, about 5 minutes.
  • Be careful not to let it burn.
  • Carefully add roux to stewed beef.
  • Be very careful because it can splatter.
  • Bring back to a simmer and thicken, simmer for 5-10 minutes to allow flavors to meld.
  • Serve like a soft taco on flour tortillas with fresh cilantro, chopped onions, shredded cheese and sour cream for garnish.
