Chuletas Guisadas (stewed pork chops)

by nilda on September 16, 2011

Nice to see you again at Nilda’s Kitchen – Latin Corner.

It has been quite some time since my last video and I apologize for that. But I must admit it is good to be back. And as always, I will be teaching you how to make easy delicious meals. Today I am cooking Chuletas Guisadas. It is one of my husbands favorite meals. My BFF Mary who lives in Florida loves this one. So I will be cooking this with her in mind.

There are many ways you can cook pork chops. You can fry them, grill them and you can even cook it in your rice. But today I will be cooking it in water. It is quick, healthy and delicious.

To make Chuletas Guisadas you will need the following:

  • Saucepan
  • Pack of Pork Chops
  • Adobo seasoning (to your taste)
  • 1 1/2 tbs of Sofrito
  • 2 tbs of tomato sauce
  • 1 to 2 packets of Sazon (for slight seasoning and color)
  • 1 cup of water

First of all, wash your pork chops. Grab your saucepan and pour your water in it and while it starts to heat up you can begin to season your meat with adobo (to taste). Once you’ve seasoned your pork chops, you can now transfer them to your saucepan. Add your sofrito, your tomato sauce and your sazon to your meat. Mix it in as seen in the video. On medium heat allow it to boil. Once it begins to boil lower your flame and cover your sauce pan. Allow it to cook/simmer for approximately 15 to 18 minutes. Flip your pork chops and allow it to cook for an additional 18 to 20 minutes. A trick to see if it done is simply using a fork and poking your chop at the end to see if it shreds or tears up easily. If it does, you are done. Yay! You see how easy it is. You have just made Chuletas Guisadas. Serve and enjoy!

Yes it is very easy. Cooking doesn’t have to be hard and time consuming. I will continue to make easy to cook meals as long as I can. Thanks

I’m glad you enjoyed it. I heard you made it for your family in London and they went back for more. I also heard you made the sofrito. That’s awesome! I will be posting more videos. One suggestion will be to subscribe to my newsletter that way you will automatically get notified when I make more videos. Again thanks for watching my videos.

I have tried your Pollo Guisado recipe more than once and I can’t seem to master the thickness of your recipe. I’m following the recipe exactly and it still doesn’t come out thick like yours.
What kind of potatoes do you use? How many chicken pieces do you use in this recipe?


nilda October 23, 2012 at 12:30 am

Well I can’t tell you exactly how much chicken I use (usually about a whole chicken cut up), but to help thicken it you can add a little more tomato sauce to it.. Also what I do is that if i feel that i put too much water, I uncover it and let some of the liquid dry up. That will help it thicken as well. In regards to what kind of potatoes, I use russet potatoes, 3 medium cut up. I hope this helps.

Hi Yvette

Can you tell me exactly how many ajicitos you put into your mix. Ajicitos are normally not bitter that’s why I ask. One way you can attempt to fix it is by adding more cilantro and onion to it. Onion can fix a lot of problems. If you put a good chunk in the mix, you might have to consider discarding it. I look forward to your response.

Your recipes are great and also are so easy to follow the directions. Could you post a video for roasted chicken and also barbecue chicken done in the oven? Thanks, and may God Bless you and your family.
