Carne Guisada

Y’all I have been working on this recipe, for years!  Yes, honestly years!  Not that it’s terribly difficult to make, it just took me a while to get each ingredient exactly the way I wanted it.  And now for you I have this delicious recipe.  You are probably going to want to add this to your “to make” list for this fall.  This is a crock pot meal that I often start the night before and let get so tender for dinner the next night.  It’s a perfect chili-type dinner…. and get this: you can reinvent it for breakfast the next day! So really I’m giving you two meals today. Wahoo!  Let’s dive in!Carne GuisadaFrom the Kitchen of Darby Hawley
2-3 lbs beef chuck roast cut into 1-inch pieces
sea salt & ground pepper
4 tbs coconut oil
14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
2 cups water
1 medium white onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 jalapeño, diced
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
3/4 tsp chili powder
3/4 tsp dried oregano
6 tbs all-purpose flour
2 cups chicken broth, or bouillon
tortillas (corn or flour)
cheddar, shredded,
cilantro, shopped
avocado, sliced

1. Season beef with salt and pepper. In a large skillet (I use cast iron), heat 2 tbs coconut oil over high. Cook beef until browned, and transfer to a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker.  Add tomatoes  and 1-2 cups of water to the crock pot with the meat.  Later if it is too thick you can add more water.
2. In the same skillet, cook 2 tbs coconut oil, onion, bell pepper, jalapeno, and garlic over medium, stirring and scraping up browned bits, until vegetables are tender. Add cumin, chili powder, oregano, and flour and cook 1 minute.
3. Slowly pour chicken broth into skillet, stirring until liquid is smooth. Simmer 2 minutes, then transfer mixture to slow cooker. Season to taste with salt and pepper and stir to combine. Cover and cook on high 6 hours (or I sometimes will cook on warm or low for 12-15 hours).  Serve over tortillas with cheese, cilantro, & avocado.
4. Enjoy!
*The next day, add a little bit of the carne guisada to your eggs with some siracha and you will have some out of this world breakfast tacos!!!! You’re welcome!Carne Guisada for Breakfast
