Carne Guisada Recipe

After moving from Texas to Michigan, my boyfriend and I grew homesick for the spicy flavors of home. We've made this recipe a few times now, and it goes really well with homemade flour tortillas. We love it over rice, too.—Kelly Evans, Denton, Texas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Cook: 7 hours YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 bottle (12 ounces) beer
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • Dash liquid smoke, optional
  • 1 boneless pork shoulder butt roast (3 pounds), cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 large unpeeled red potatoes, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • Whole wheat tortillas or hot cooked brown rice, lime wedges and chopped fresh cilantro, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a 4- or 5-qt. slow cooker, combine the first 13 ingredients. If desired, stir in liquid smoke. Add pork, potatoes and onion; toss to combine. Cook, covered, 7-9 hours or until pork is tender.

Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
