Carne Guisada

Carne Guisada is like a Mexican stew.  Guisada means “meat in gravy*.  Carne Asada is just meat (dry).  This recipe is my mother’s and since she reads my blog, I knew I better give her FULL credit:)  You can actually cook this in a crock pot for a few hours and it’s even more tender!!
