A few weeks ago, I shared a picture of a Carne Guisada my mother made. It was the best thing in the world. I think I was sick and it was the only thing I could keep down and actually taste. For those who don’t know what it is, it is Puerto Rican Beef Stew. It is different from the American Beef Stew because of the seasoning and the vegetables that go in it.
Carne Guisada is usually eaten with white rice or mofongo. I’ve eaten it with both and I love them equally. It is the ultimate comfort food. I always get super sleepy after eating this dish. I can definitely say that it is a staple in my home. When anyone is feeling down, a guisada is always what the doctor orders here. It is one of the many comfort foods I have grown to truly love over the years. It doesn’t have a lot of ingredients. You can throw everything in the pot and just leave it alone for a few hours on low. This makes for a much tender and chewier meat.
I hope you guys enjoyed this recipe from my lovely mama.
