  1. Cut beef into ¾-inch cubes. In large nonstick skillet or stock pot, sauté beef until brown, over MEDIUM heat. Add oil and flour and toss with beef until flour is brown. Add water and spices, stirring well.

  2. Add beef broth and reduce heat to MEDIUM-LOW. Simmer approximately 30 minutes until beef is tender. (If sauce seems too thin, add a bit more flour to desired consistency.)

  3. Spoon Carne Guisada into warm flour tortillas. Garnish with sour cream, cheese and pico de gallo, as desired.


May also be served casserole-style over rice.
