Carne Guisada

Carne Guisada with white rice


1 pound organic or grass-fed beef stew meat in bite-sized pieces
2 tablespoons organic cornstarch
2 tablespoons organic olive oil or oil of your choice
1 small onion, diced
4 cloves organic garlic, minced
2 organic jalapeno peppers, minced (or only 1 if you are a Yankee who doesn’t like it hot!)
1.5 cups organic beef broth (I use Pacific or Imagine brand)
1/2 cup organic enchilada sauce or salsa
teaspoon organic chili powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Coat meat pieces with cornstarch, then brown in olive oil in an ovenproof Dutch oven. You’re not fully cooking the meat but are just putting a little color on it.
  3. Add onion, garlic, jalapeño, beef stock, enchilada sauce, salt and chili powder; warm on the stove just until you can see steam coming off of the top of it.
  4. Cover the Dutch oven and place in the preheated oven, baking for about 2 hours, until meat is extremely tender. The sauce will thicken quite a bit as it cooks, too.
  5. Serve with rice, veggies, or with gluten-free tortillas.
