Elaboración paso a paso
 

  • Preparation
  • Heat oil in heavy saucepan or casserole and saute onion garlic and peppers until the onion is soft.
  • Add the meat and the other ingredients except the tortilla.
  • The liquid should barely cover the meat. Add a little more stock if necessary.
  • Covered, simmer gently until the beef is tender, about 2 hours.
  • If using tortillas soak in cold water, and crumble like bread crumbs. Add to the casserole and simmer uncovered, until the sauce is thickened.
  • If using masa harina or cornmeal mix with a little cold water and stir into the stew, cooking just until the sauce is thickened.
