Tex Mex Beef Stew / Carne Guisada Recipe

Carne Guisada Recipe

2 pounds of chuck roast with excess fat removed and cut into chunks.

1/2 large onion diced
2 roma tomatoes diced
2 jalapeno peppers finely diced
4 cloves garlic minced

1 bay leaf
1/2 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon Mexican oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Working in batches brown the meat in hot oil and remove from pan.

If needed add more oil to pan and add veggies and spices. As veggies start to release moister scrape the bottom of the pan to release brown bits. After brown bits are released return meat to pan, reduce heat to medium low and cover, simmer for a minimum of 2 hours but 4 or 5 is better. 30 minutes before serving add a handful of cilantro, cook until stew is desired thickness.

More liquid would have made it more tender, I love the recipe and will try it cooked with refreshing the liquid with beef stock. Thank you .. It promises to be delicious 🙂

Sarah Kokopuffs says:

That looks soooo good!

watts300 says:

This is really good. I made it with the exception of the bay leaf (because I’m lazy and didn’t shop for any) and I cheaped out with the beef. It’s delicious and I was surprised how well it came together and thickened. Better beef like yours would have given me a better texture. Next time! Definitely making this again.

MrMegaFredZeppelin says:

FitAngie says:

Looks and sounds really delicious james. Could you do the meat in the slow cooker.

saudefh Sauri says:

Hi im from Mexico, this version is the Tex Mex… actually in some places they add some cheese at the end in that juicy gravy and its really tasteful.
Now the Mexican version doesnt add flour, or at leats never seen it that way. its just a stew or fried meat with tomatoe, pepper and onions. (Id preffer the TexMex version)

Cris Workizer says:

Tango Joe says:

Now there is a very hearty dish – perfect for this time of year up here in the north east.
Like to give this a try in a Dutch over as well.

Anjuli M says:

Thanks! This looks so good. I will definitely have to make this. Is the Mexican Oregano different from the McCormick brand oregano we have at the grocery store?

Savannah L says:

He plated this better than the restaurant plates it lol ❤I making this tonight

Robert van der zaan says:

Hi James, you served that with mexican yellow rice and refried beans, right? Looks delicious!

Smokes A Rollin says:

James, You absolutely rock my friend! This is outstanding!

Garland N says:

The only liquid that should be used in this TexMex dish is beer. The alcohol will cook out for those of you who don’t drink. You did a great job and the flavor is probably better because you left it sit overnight. Thanks for this recipe.
