Easy Slow Cooker Carne Guisada


  • 3 pounds chuck roast, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
  • 3 medium potatoes, unpeeled and diced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 red bell peppers, cut into strips
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups beef broth


Combine beef, potatoes, onion, peppers, and garlic in a large bowl. In a small bowl, mix together the flour, chili powder, cumin, and salt. Toss the beef mixture with the flour mixture until evenly coated. Place the mixture into a slow cooker, and pour in enough beef broth to barely cover the meat. If you don't have quite enough, you can fill the rest of the way with water.
