Carne Guisada

  • 1 small onion, chopped             
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 1/4 cup margarine
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 3 roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder         
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons cilantro, chopped
  • 1 package Gardein Beefless Tips
  • 1/4 cup vegan cheese 

In a large skillet, heat the margarine until melted.  Add the onions and sauté until soft, about 5 minutes.  Add the garlic and jalapeno, sauté for two minutes or until peppers are soft. 

Add flour and stir.  Cook until flour mixture is lightly browned.  Add tomatoes and stir.  Cook until tomatoes are slightly softened.  Slowly add water and stir while adding water gradually.  Next add the seasonings and soy sauce.  Simmer for about 20 minutes, or until sauce has thickened.  

Add Gardein and cilantro.  Simmer for 10 minutes or until Gardein is heated through.  

Serve on tortillas with cheese. 

You can add some Toffuti Sour Cream and pickled jalapenos for garnish. I like to serve my Carne Guisada in a bowl with sour cream and jalapenos with the tortilla on the side. 

I made Tortilla, Bean and Cheese Casserole from "Mexican made simple" to go with this.
