Gluten-Free Carne Guisada

Gluten-Free Carne Guisada with Salad and Shredded Cheese


Tender chunks of meat, spices and flavorful vegetables braised together make a fragrant Mexican version of beef stew called Carne Guisada.

The flavors of Carne Guisada are ideal for a simple family dinner.  My husband likes it on the mild side, and I kick it up with extra Pico de Gallo or Salsa on mine.

With a few accompaniments like tortillas, tossed salad, shredded cheese or guacamole, Gluten-Free Carne Guisada makes a meal worthy of guests.

If you haven’t tried a TexMex version of beef stew, you’ll enjoy this!

  • 2 Pounds Beef Stew Meat, cut in 1/2″ cubes
  • 3 Tablespoons Oil

Combine flour, salt and pepper; dredge the meat cubes (omit the dredging for low carb).

In large skillet or Dutch oven with a lid, brown meat on both sides in hot oil.

Add remaining ingredients except for extra water, pepper strips, and tortillas.

Cover; cook over low heat about 1-1/2 hours or till tender. Check from time to time to see if mixture is drying out too much. Add a little water if needed to maintain at least an inch of liquid in the pan.

Skim off any excess fat.

Adjust seasoning to taste.

Spoon meat and gravy into a bowl or onto a warm tortilla; garnish with jalapeno or sweet red pepper strips.

Serve. A tossed salad, more salsa or pico de gallo, some shredded cheese or a spoonful of guacamole are good accompaniments.
