This recipe was very good. I've learned from past experiences that Sazon and Adobo seasoning are basically seasoning salts. So using tomato sauce w/o salt is good, and/or omitting the extra salt "to taste" or even cutting the adobo seasoning in 1/4-1/2 the amount helps out. As a shortcut I boiled the meat for 30 min, then added the potatoes and cooked until tender; it turned out wonderful and saved me 30 min. This is definitely a keeper for the family.

This was good but definitely reduce the salt, made as the recipe is written it is WAY too salty.

I made this in a slow cooker using the sofrito (also by fivebrig's), and homemade adobo seasoning. I let this cook about 6-7 hours, adding the potatoes the last hour. I used a chuck roast. This was wonderful with habichuelas guisadas and steamed calrose rice. Leftovers are going to be wonderful with some flour tortillas! I can't say thank you enough for sharing this! :)

I had never had Puerto Rican food before, and this was a perfect experience for me. I do, however, agree that it was salty. My Puerto Rican mother-in-law raved over it. I made it in my crock pot, as she suggested and the meat was simply falling apart tender. Will make it again and again.

Very good! I use a 12 oz. can of Coors Light in my carne guisada. It adds alot of flavor and tenderizes the meat.

I has 3 lbs of beef cubes that I had to use up and I wanted to make a delicious prican meal....FOUND IT! First thing I did was sear my adobo seasoned cubes in olive oil to brown all sides (about 15 min total stirring once they were browned). In the same pot I added about 1 cup of water and boiled the cubes for 45 min (kept adding water) and then turn down the heat and simmered for another 45 minutes. Doing that really tenderized my meat. Then I followed the directions exactly. Really flavorful!!! Just like my Mama used to make!!! BUEN PROVECHO!

Very good :) I added a carrot for some extra flavor and color. Easy on the salt, if you're not into saltiness. The seasonings already have salt.

This recipe brought me back! My parents are from Puerto Rico and it reminded me of my younger days! I followed everything but omitted the salt. This one is a keeper!
