This is an awesome base recipe, with many options of substituting or tweaking to your liking. I used very lean, fresh venison instead of sirloin, olive oil, green peppers, and a spice mix by Bolner's (Fiesta brand) called Extra Fancy Carne Guisada Seasoning. I didn't use fresh garlic because I didn't have any. I cooked it all in a cast iron Dutch oven on the stove top, but simmered for about 2 1/2 hours to make the venison more tender. The finished dish was awesome on top of Mexican rice, with homemade flour tortillas, and frijoles a la charra on the side. A Classic Coke in a glass bottle from Mexico made this meal almost emotional for me! It took me back to my abuelitas kitchen table back in the '80's. :) Delicious recipe!!!
