Ingredients

  • 1 pound tomatillos husked and rinsed
  • 1 to 2 fresh serrano chiles stemmed
  • 1 cup cilantro leaves and upper part of stems
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt or to taste
  • 1 pound thick bacon slices chopped
  • 2 pounds sirloin steak thinly sliced and cut into small bite size pieces
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 to 3 cups chicken or beef broth
  • 5 to 6 cups Frijoles de Olla or beans from the pot (cooked pinto beans)

To serve:

  • Finely chopped white onion
  • Finely chopped cilantro
  • Quartered limes
  • Warm corn tortillas optional
  • Fresh chunky guacamole optional

To Prepare

  • Place tomatillos and serrano chiles in a medium saucepan. Cover with water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium and cook for 8 to 10 minutes until completely cooked through and soft. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the tomatillos and chiles to the jar of a blender along with the cilantro and a teaspoon of salt. Puree until completely smooth and set aside.
  • In a large casserole or Dutch oven, fry the chopped bacon over medium heat until crisp. Transfer to a bowl with a slotted spoon and set aside. Reduce heat to medium, add the streak to bacon fat and cook until it starts to render all its juices. Once it does, add the onion and the broth. Continue cooking for about 15 minutes.
  • Incorporate the tomatillo puree and continue cooking for another 15 minutes, until meat is completely tender and broth has seasoned.
  • Serve the carne en su jugo in bowls along with a ladle of cooked pinto beans, and top with the crisp bacon. Place chopped white onion, cilantro, and lime wedges on the table for everyone to add as they please. You can serve with warm corn tortillas and a side of fresh guacamole.

    Pati! I saw this soup on one of your demos on Facebook and had to try it. I made it the next day and oh it was truly one of the best soups I have ever made or tasted and so easy to make such a flavorful meal. I recently doubled the recipe and made it for a church gathering…. I took home an empty pot. It was loved and enjoyed with people grabbing seconds and thirds by even some. I am Gluten Free so this recipe needed no alternating. Thank you for sharing your precious recipes! What a treasure, I now have two of your cookbooks. My husband and I used to go to Ensenada Mexico frequently and we felt like it was our home away from home. I love learning how to make the food! I cannot wait to make more recipes from your book.

    I had to make this recipe after seeing Patti’s demo and she is correct! It is so rich with flavor!! It is so flavorful and doesn’t really take long to prepare. I make my own guacamole as well as my own chicken bone broth and loved how easy it was to make. This is now our favorite and I am making it for a church group to share! My husband and I have spent a lot of time in Mexico and this recipe I will truly treasure.

    Hi Pati,
    I was excited to see you make this stew. I have been making this for my family for years. I like to make potato and chorizo taquitos or rolled tacos to dip into the soup or stew. So yummy. I really love your cooking and watching your show. This recipe is good to cook in the wintertime it’s like a warm hug.

    Your show is incredible. I can’t wait to see new ones so I can make new food items. You make things so simple and although I have a basic knowledge of Mexican cooking you have passed on so many good ideas and techniques that I make at least 3 of your recipes every week.

    My son, husband and I watch F1 racing all year, and I serve foods from each of the countrys in which they race. I have been looking forward to Brazil which is in a few weeks (Faijoada on the menu!) but I am so psyched to prepare your Carne en su Jugo for my family for this week’s race in Mexico City!! And you know that the Masa Harina shortcakes will be served after the checkered flag flies!!
    Many blessings to you and your lovely family, Pati. ❤️

    My husbands one of those who dislikes cilantro. I heard you an use parsley in place of but not sure the taste would translate. Is there another option? Love your recipes and show.

    1. Pati Jinich

      Leave the cilantro out if he does not care for it, and enjoy it!

    Ever since I viewed it on PBS I wanted to try this recipe. I had apprehension of using tomatillos in a soup but decided to follow the recipe just the way Patty has given.
    This is a delicious soup especially on a cold fall day. To reduce the tartness I added a pinch of sugar.
    I severed the soup with plain rice and it turned out to be a hit with the family.
    Thank you for sharing the recipe!!!

    Pati
    Thank you so much for making the recipe available. I have enjoyed this as my favorite dish at the local “Taco Giro” restaurant in Tucson, AZ. Now I can make it at home!
    P.S. you might want to stop by one of their locations and try it next time you are in Tucson.
    Best,

    I watched an episode of Patti’s Mexican table last week where she made this recipe, inspired, I decided to make it this past Sunday afternoon along with the Frijoles de Olla from scratch, this will definitely become a new favorite comfort food. The home made tomatillo sauce was easy and really delicious. As Patti described in the show, there is a depth to the flavors – this is really good.
    Thank you !
