Recipe Notes

Most recipes for Carne Guisada call for beef stock. I have never needed it because there was enough liquid generated from the meat and veggies. You can have some on hand to add just before adding the chocolate┬ároux in case it looks like most of the liquid has simmered away. You shouldn’t need any more than 1/4 – 1/2 cup.
