Carne Guisada – Low Carb/Trim Healthy Mama S- Easy and Delicious!

This easy and delicious Carne Guisada is low carb and trim healthy mama s.

It is also a crockpot recipe and so full of flavor!! Transform Taco Tuesday into a more authentic taco night. The flavors in this crockpot carne guisada are so on point to what I get at our local taqueria. Carne guisada means beef stew. With this recipe we make it pretty much like our local restaurants but we make a substitute to keep low carb, trim healthy mama friendly.

This carne guisada recipe features beef chunks, simmered with onions, bell peppers, and seasonings.

You end up with a nice gravy. You can spice this up, of course. I kept it mild so everyone could eat this. We had this after our local Christmas parade and had some extra family over. Because carne guisada is so versatile you have options on how you want to serve it. You can serve it with tortillas (I used zero carb), on top of Spanish rice (this recipe is always a hit with my picky family), over salad greens. Make some homemade pico to go with it. Here is another option or you could serve any leftovers like this.

Carne guisada is made with beef chunks.

I rarely find beef stew on sale. Typically, when I need chunks of beef, I like to use either a roast or beef sirloin. My local grocery store has meet buy get one almost every week. I then just cut them up into chunks. This is finished in a slow cooker (I used my ninja foodi so it was a one pot dinner for me). This recipe is seriously delicious and easy. If you need something comforting or a new recipe for Taco Tuesday, add this to your menu. Let me know what you thought if you make it.
