Well, it is that time of the week again! It’s Thursday, which means I get to post my favorite crockpot recipe of the week πŸ™‚ This week it is what will actually be cooking in MY crockpot today for tonight’s dinner. I’m very excited about tonight’s dinner….I’ve been looking forward to it all week πŸ™‚ Is that crazy or what? πŸ™‚ This recipe is from Menus4Moms and I know it will be delish! So far, we have not been disappointed in any of the recipes from there! We don’t use all of their recipes, I usually will pick a couple from each week’s menu, then look back in the archives to see what they had on the same week’s menu from last year, and then fill in the rest of the week’s menu plans with family favorites, or other recipes that I’m wanting to give a try. If you’d like to also participate in the Slow Cooking Thursday, click on the banner above and check out Sandra’s blog for other great crockpot recipes posted by others all over bloggy land, or to submit your own recipe! Thanks Sandra for hosting this each week! And I hope you get to feeling better soon πŸ™‚






Carne Guisada


  • 3 lbs beef stew meat

  • 2 cans diced Rotel tomatoes with green chiles* or plain diced tomatoes

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 3 cloves garlic minced

  • 1 cup chopped onion

  • 3 T. flour

  • 1/2 tsp cumin

  • 1/2 tsp oregano

  • 1 tsp chili powder

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 1 diced bell pepper

Place stew meat, 1/4 cup water, salt and pepper in slow cooker. Turn heat to high and let simmer for 1 1/2 hours. Drain juice from the Rotel tomatoes into measuring cup. Add Rotel, garlic, bell pepper, and onions to crock pot. Stir and let simmer on high for 30 minutes. Add cumin, oregano, and chili powder to crock pot and stir. Blend the Rotel juice and enough water to equal 1 1/2 cups liquid. Add flour to the liquid & stir into meat/veggie mixture. Let cook on low for 3-4 hours until sauce is nice and thick. (If you like runnier gravy three hours is good.)

    Oh…this sounds really good. I wish I had some stew meat in my freezer right now. I actually planned out dinners for the next week and a half. I usually never do that! I may have to change something out for this recipe, though.


    Momma, I am actually using a roast that I had in the freezer….cutting it up into stew meat. Stew meat is just too expensive πŸ™‚ I got roast for 1.97 a week this past week. If you want to come over, I’ll save a serving for you πŸ™‚

  8. Eleisia says:

    yum, my mouth is watering! This beef recipe sounds like it would be good with tortillas.

    That is exactly what I’m serving it with……tortillas, spanish rice (made with brown rice), beans (for my vegetarian daughter), green beans, and sauteed onions and peppers (fajita style). Should make for an excellent dinner, and one that I know everyone will thoroughly enjoy!

  10. This looks very yummy. It will be on themenu soon.
    Thanks for pointing me to Elizabeth’s other site. I stopped in and visited her there.

    Please share your spanish rice made from brown rice sometime.
