Red Chile Beef
Red Chile with Beef
2 c basic red chile sauce
(from dried or fresh red peppers)
2 lbs chuck or round steak, cubed
 1 c beef or chicken broth
salt and pepper
2 T vegetable oil


Preheat the oil in a skillet. Season the beef with salt and pepper and add to the hot oil. Sear until golden brown.

Add the red chile sauce, bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer. If you like a thinner chile add more broth as desired.

Taste for seasoning and cover partially while simmering for 2 hours or until the beef is tender.

Serve with your favorite side dishes and warm tortillas.
(Can also be used as an enchilada or taco filling.)
