    Sooz Cooks's Note:

    This is pure comfort food in a lot of parts of Mexico. One bite of this delicious soup/stew will make you a fan forever! I got the recipe off of a low carb recipe site and modified it for our tastes. For the low(er) carb version leave out the beans and serve with low carb tortillas. DELICIOUS!!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    • 1 lb bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
    • 2 lbs sirloin tip steaks (I use the thin sliced sirloin and while still partially frozen, slice it into 1-inch pieces) or 2 lbs top round beef, sliced thinly and into 1-inch pieces (I use the thin sliced sirloin and while still partially frozen, slice it into 1-inch pieces)
    • 2 (28 ounce) cans tomatillos (large cans, do not drain)
    • 1 cup cilantro stems, and leaves
    • 4 garlic cloves
    • salt
    • 30 ounces canned pinto beans, rinsed and drained




    1. 1
      Brown the bacon in a large dutch oven. Add the beef and cook until brown (leave the bacon grease in the pot).
    2. 2
      Blend the tomatillos in your food processor and strain well to remove the seeds. Add about a cup of the tomatillo liquid back into the food processor and blend with the cilantro, and garlic.
    3. 3
      Add the tomatillo/cilantro/garlic sauce and the rest of the strained tomatillo liquid to the beef and bacon. Add salt to taste.
    4. 4

      I love carne en su jugo! This recipe as written is about a 4, but to make it a solid 5, I added some serrano chiles (about 2 or 3) and a diced up onion in the tomatillo, cilantro, garlic blend, blended all of it together. I just used a regular pan to cook the bacon and beef. I also added beef broth to the entire thing to make it more like a soup. I used every recommended garnish but added my favorite part of it all, FRESH AVOCADO!!! You won't be sorry!

      This was excellent! I halved the recipe since there is only two of us. I did cook it on low for a few hours to get the beef really tender. I was unable to find canned tomatillos so I used salsa verde instead. To reduce the fat, I trimmed the bacon fat but was left with enough bacon fat to brown the meat nicely.I served it with limes,sour cream and corn tortillas. This was really delicious and I will definitely make this again. Thanks SoozieQ!
