Ingredients

  • 3 Lbs Boneless Beef Shoulder Roast

  • 2 Large Tomato
  • 2 Teaspoons Ground Cumin

Instructions

  • In a large stove top casserole pan add lard, (or oil), and turn heat to medium. Cut up shoulder roast to 1 inch cubes and add to pan. Roughly chop the tomato and add on top of meat.
  • Remove seeds from bell pepper, rough chop and add to top of ingredients.
  • Rough slice onion and add to pan
  • Chop garlic cloves small and thin and add to top of pan. Add cumin, salt and pepper. Now stir all ingredients together. At this time the aromas should be AMAZING!
  • Place lid on top and cook on LOW for 3 hours. 30 minutes before carne guisada is ready add flour to water.
  • Notice the vegetables cooked down to practically nothing. They have converted to pure flavor! Stir flour mixture into pot and let simmer on low for the next 20-30 minutes.
  • This is the way I usually serve my carne guisada. This recipe is so amazingly simple. No fancy ingredients. Please feel free to add your special touches if you wish but this recipe has not changed for years. I hope it will bring your family together for a good homemade meal.
