  • Combine the chile powder, minced garlic, and oregano in a small bowl. Add enough of the beef cooking water to make a paste. After 30 minutes, stir the spice paste into the beef mixture.

  • Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Cook flour, stirring constantly, until golden brown. Take 1 cup of the spiced cooking water and whisk it into the flour mixture until smooth. Stir in the cumin, chopped parsley, and salt.

  • Transfer the thickened sauce mixture into the saucepan with the beef. Simmer until tender, about 1 1/2 hours.

Note:

Use any red chile powder: Anaheim, New Mexico, Guajillo.

Wow! This was spicy! 4 Tbsp red pepper flakes was WAY too much. I used only 2 Tbsp and we were sweating and our lips were burning. Despite the bite it had a great flavor! We'll cook this one again but probably only with 3-4 teaspoons of the red pepper flakes. Read More
