3 lbs. sirloin
2 Tbsp. oil
1 clove garlic, mashed
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. chili powder
4 Tbsp. flour
1 can beef broth
3/4 cup water
salt and pepper to taste
4 flour tortillas, warmed
Cut beef into 3/4-inch cubes. In large nonstick skillet or stock pot, sauté beef until brown, over medium heat. Add oil and flour and toss with beef until flour is brown. Add water and spices, stirring well.
Add beef broth and reduce heat to medium low. Simmer approximately 30 minutes until beef is tender. (If sauce seems too thin, add a bit more flour to desired consistency.)
Place a warmed flour tortilla in a soup bowl and spoon the carne guisada into the "tortilla bowl". Garnish with sour cream, cheese and Pico de Gallo.
Note: May also be served casserole-style over rice.
