El Charro Chile Con Carne (Red Chile And Beef Stew)

Recipe from: El Charro Cafe Favorite Recipes by Carlotta Dunn Flores, El Charro Cafe, Tucson, Arizona
Servings: 6

3 pounds beef roast (eye of round or brisket)
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon salt, or to taste
1 teaspoon pepper
½ cup oil
3 cups Salsa De Chile Colorado
1 tablespoon garlic purée (See recipe)
1 teaspoon oregano

This is the basic meat preparation that we serve in bowls along with tortillas, on combination plates or as filling for Burros, Chimis, Chalupas, Enchiladas and Tamales.

Cut meat into 1-inch pieces and place, a handful at a time, into a paper bag containing flour, salt and pepper. Shake well. Repeat with remaining beef.

In a large skillet, heat oil. Add beef, a batch at a time so that the skillet is not crowded, and brown slowly. Add Salsa De Chile Colorado, garlic and oregano. Cook over low heat 1 hour or longer, until meat is tender, stirring frequently to prevent scorching. Add a little hot water if necessary.
