Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours 20 minutes


  • 2.5 lb beef chuck brisket or roast
  • 4 Chile Guajillo
  • 1/2 piece of cinnamon
  • ½ large white onion
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic (minced)
  • 2 large tomatoes
  • 2 cloves (whole)
  • 9 cups of water
  • ½ teaspoon of thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon marjoram
  • ¼ teaspoon of black pepper
  • 2 bay leaves
  • ¼ teaspoon of cumin seeds
  • ½ teaspoon of oregano
  • Salt
  • Low-carb tortillas


    Step 1

    Get your giant pot now. Put in the beef as a whole without cutting or slicing. Place 1-quarter onion next to the meat (without chopping it). Add the garlic and pour the water into the pot as indicated in the ingredients list. Pour salt. Cook on medium heat until it boils. After boiling, reduce the heat and cook until the beef is tender. This will take about 2 hours.

    Step 2

    While the meat is tender, let's get to making the sauce. Cut the tomatoes into 4 equal parts, first in the middle and then vertically. Please put it in another pot. Divide the remaining onion into 4 equal parts. Put it in the pot with tomatoes in it. Crush 1 garlic. Add that in, too. Add the chile guajillos, but be sure to remove the inner cores. Then, cover them with water. Start boiling it.

    Step 3

    Remove the boiled tomato sauce from the heat and add oregano, black pepper, cloves, cumin seeds, cinnamon sticks, marjoram, thyme and bay leaves and leave for 10 minutes.

    Step 4

    Take 2 cups of broth from the beef that continues to cook and put it aside. Now strain the tomato sauce that you have been waiting for 10 minutes. But keep the liquid that you strain out. Put the grains into the food processor or blender, remove the bay leaves and cinnamon sticks, add half of the tomato sauce juice and the 2 cups of broth you have reserved into the grains and start the processor. Let it get a perfect orange color. Add some salt and mix some more.

    Step 5

    When the beef is cooked, pour all the tomato salsa into it. Put the bay leaves you just took out of the salsa sauce back into it. Let it cook for another half hour. If the beef does not appear to be tender yet, don’t worry. You can cook as much as you want with this sauce.

    When the meat separates easily, it means it is cooked. You can see how they go together with the crimson salsa sauce. Yummy!

    Step 6

    Dip the tortillas in the beef sauce and fry in olive oil. Put the grated white cheddar cheese in the middle. Put the meat on the cheese. Fold it in half and ensure both sides of the tortillas are cooked. Continue this process until the tortillas are done.
