For this one you will need:
BEEF STEAK (basically as much as you want to make)
GARLIC (one to three cloves but it depends on how much you’re doing)
ROMA TOMATOES (2 to 4)
JALAPEÑO PEPPERS (I use serranos as well)
here’s what I do;
1) chop the steak into about 1/2 to 3/4 inch squares and set aside
2) chop onion coarsely and set aside
3) slice chilli peppers (I usually do 4 or so but it’s per taste, you may or may not like it as hot) and set aside
4) peel and chop garlic cloves finely and set aside
5) put tomatoes into a pot with water and boil until skin starts to come off, peel and place in a food processor (without water) and purée
6) now bring out a pan and some avacado oil (just enough to keep from sticking)and brown the cubes of steak
7) add onion, garlic, lime juice, sliced chillis and tomatoes and cover and let simmer at low heat until steak is tender
SERVE WITH FRIJOLES (beans) Y TORTILLAS de HARINAS (flour tortillas)
That sounds delicious! Is there a particular cut of steak you recommend for this? Something like a chuck steak or brisket that takes kind of a long time to get tender? How long would you say you usually let it simmer to get tender- that might help me decide.
How are you doing, Bamps? It's always good to hear from you! Are there still any chihuahuas running around your place or only Opie and his new brother? Is Opie getting accustomed to Merle's puppy energy?
I think you have mentioned training your dogs to avoid snakes. How do you do that? We recently saw a copperhead in our yard, which is venemous. My 5 year old granddaughter knew to stay away from it but I'm not sure our dogs would be that smart! Any hints you can offer would be great.
This does sound delicious. I was also wondering what kind of steak to use.
This is similar to a green chili stew recipe that I make, and it sounds delish! I would probably use stew meat for this, and cook it in the crock pot.
Unfortunately, all our Chihuahuas are gone. We got a dog that was supposed to have been a chihuahua/pug mix but I think he’s more of a jack russel terrier and weaner dog. We named him Chuggy and he’s my wife’s little dog. The homeless lady we got him from got a room with people at church and couldn’t let him out of the room, poor little guy spent most his life in a small kennel in her rm. Well he loves his “freedom” here and we love the little guy. Opie and Chuggy have worked out their differences and get along well.
So then comes Merle. Merle Muttly the 3rd is well on his way to be a good little dog. He, according to the humane society, is lab/healer mix and comes from an abusive neglet home in the next town. I kept going to their sight between looking at several breeds. Purebred labs were too much, bloodhounds too much, I found a little of Bluetick Coonhounds and thought to get back into those but it turned out to be a scam. So I went back to the HS sight and thought “I’ll just LOOK” but when they brought him out with that puppy smile and goofy eye and he jumped up on me and was just happy to see me, that was it.
Snake training; this you will not like. Please understand I lost a dog to a Mojave Rattlesnake and I didn’t like it one bit. I couldn’t even get him loaded in the truck to get him to the vet before he was gone. The way both professional dog trainers and myself is a shock collar. I clear snakes from my clearing with tongs but I stop and use them to train dogs. As soon as the dog gets near, he receives a shock. This is the only thing I use shock collars for and as little as possible. I would rather have my dog receive a slight shock and be afraid of snakes than to loose another to a snakes. The vaccines for rattlesnake bites are both expensive and only 50% or so effective. This seems more effective. Both Opie and Chuggy will back out with any snake, venomous or nonvenomous. I’ll wait and train or retrain them early spring when I need to move one. I move them off the clearing into the desert a little ways,
