Crocky Carne Guisada Recipe ~ Yummy & Cheap

I got a great deal on some reduced beef stew meat awhile back and have been looking for some out of the norm ways to use it up. This was an outstanding meal and so CHEAP! The meat, which was the biggest expense, costs $1.50! I hope you enjoy this yummy, frugal, filling dish as much as we did!

Crock Pot Carne Guisada

What You Need:
1 1/2 lbs beef stew meat
2 tsp. diced garlic
1 small onion, finely chopped
4 small jalapeno peppers, finely chopped
2 cups water
1 15oz can tomato sauce
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons cumin
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

What You Do:
Brown the stew beef in a little hot oil...I used bacon grease. Put meat in greased crock pot. Add the garlic, onion and peppers. Add the tomato sauce and water. Add all remaining ingredients. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. Serve over Spanish rice.

Note: We have a large abundance of canned jalapeno peppers, most of which are very mild. I would not advise using 4 hot jalapenos in this, unless you just really enjoy spicy food! The amount of peppers you use is totally up to your own tastes!
