Carne en su Jugo

I was in lovely Galt, California with one of my growers and instead of the deli sandwiches we normally get, I asked it he wouldn't mind trying the Mexican place next door. He agreed (I think reluctantly) and I was pretty happy.


Much to my surprise, on the menu was "CARNE EN SU HUGO", which is one of my favorite dishes from Jalisco. There are many version but they all seem to have thin cuts of cheap steak, beans (Normally Mayacoba/Peruanos/Cannarios) and bacon. This version was loaded with zucchini, something I've never seen before but it made a nice summer soup.

I have version on the Rancho Gordo website that's worth checking out.



we love that recipe for carne en su jugo you gave us a couple years back -- we make it all the time. :)

That picture makes me want to hop in my car and take the road to Guadalajara!

Except it was taken in Northern California, a slightly more ambitious roadtrip.
