    Carne en su Jugo

    This dish is a specialty of the region of Guadalajara, Jalisco. Tender meat strips, simmered in brothy salsa are served alongside whole beans in their broth, making the combination a delicious kind of soup. Garnishes take this dish over the top. 


    Ingredients
    For the Beef
    3/4
    pound
    bacon, cut into 1/4 inches slices
    2
    pounds
    sirloin tip roast, cut into 1/4 inch slices and 1 inch strips
    1
    cup
    beef broth
    6
    small tomatillos, quartered
    1
    hot house tomato, cut into chunks
    1
    small onion, cut into chunks
    2
    cloves
    garlic, peeled
    1/2
    cup
    Chopped Cilantro
    1
    teaspoon
    kosher salt
    6
    cups
    whole pinto beans, in their broth
    For the Garnish
    1
    lime, cut into wedges
    2
    avocados, cut into slices
    12
    green onions, grilled
    1
    small onion, minced
    1
    cup
    salsa
    1/2
    cup
    Chopped Cilantro
    *
    cooked bacon
    *
    tortillas
    Directions
    In large Dutch oven, over medium heat, cook bacon, stirring until almost crispy, about 8 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon to paper towels and reserve for garnish. Remove all but 2 tablespoons bacon fat from pot and add meat all at once. Stir to coat in fat, reduce heat to medium low, and cover pot for 5 minutes. This will make the meat release its juices.
    While meat is simmering, place beef broth, tomatillos, tomato, onion, garlic, cilantro, and salt in blender. Process until very smooth.
    Add this sauce to the meat and stir well. Let meat simmer, partially covered, for about 20 minutes, or until meat is tender. Correct seasonings.
    In another pot, heat up the beans and broth. To serve, ladle 1 cup of beans and broth into a bowl. Add a ladle of meat and sauce in the same bowl.
    At the table, let your guests garnish with the reserved bacon, avocado, onion, cilantro, and salsa. Serve grilled onions and tortillas on the side.
