So this afternoon i figured out how to make carne en su jugo.  I hope this will get published to all recipes!!

1 lb of Round Steak
1/2 lb of bacon
5 cups cooked pinto beans
2 beef bouillon cubes
1 tspn cumin
1 tspn black pepper
1 tablespoon minced garlic (from jar)
2 tbspns minced white onion
2 tspns seasoned salt
2 Bay leaves
2 Tablespoons Salt
8 Cups Water

White Onion
Hot Sauce or Jalapenos

1. Follow package directions for pinto beans.  Once they are done drain and rinse them clean.  Place them back in pan. Place water in pan (8 cups).  Set aside.

2. Cut bacon into 1/4 inch peices, and cook slightly (do not cook to much).  Set aside and save juices from bacon.

3. Slice steak into 1/2 in thin strips(sliced very thin).  In a small soup pan add steak cover with water.  Add garlic, pepper, cumin, 1 beef bouillon cube, season salt & 2 tbsp minced onion.  Boil for about 45-60 minutes until meat is tender. 

4. In the large pan with beans and water,  add Bacon and juices also add the pan with the steak also with the juices, 1 beef bouillon cube & 2 tablespoons salt in this pan.  Let simmer on medium heat for about 30 minutes.   

5.  While it is simmering mince onion, cilantro,  hot sauce if you do not want to use hot sauce you could mince jalapeno peppers & cut limes into wedges.  Heat tortillas.

6. Dish into bowls and serve!

Here is the recipe for the Green Got Sauce!!  Just got posted today!!  Yeah!<

That sounds so good! I am going to try it! What kind of flavor do the bay leaves give? I have never used them. Are they easy to find?

You should be able to get bay leaves at your local grocery store in the spice isle. It probley would be ok without them. I do remove them after the soup is done!

omg i havent tried this recipe, but my mother-in-law makes it. I have to tell you that this is my favorite dish !!

This is my favorite dish also!! My mother-in-law also taught me to make this. The only thing she does differently is she doesnt slightly cook the bacon, she takes juice of about 2 lime and soaks the bacon in it for about 20 minutes. Which maybe you could do then fry slightly...the thought of not cooking it scares me. Although hers does taste great!!

It sounds much tastier!!! Thanks for posting. And I'm glad that you take an interest in learning how to cook Mexican food. I am also from Guadalajara... as is your Hubby =O)

About Me
I love to cook, its relieving after a long day. I'm the mother to 4 beautiful kids and 1 stepson. I work full-time and go to college also. Gets crazy sometimes, but I try to cook as much as possible.
My favorite things to cook
I love a homecooked meal at the end of the day. I have many favorites but some of the ones my mom taught me were tater tot hotdish (I know simple but good!), steak and gravy, and chocolate chip cookies. My ex-mother in law is from Mexico so some of my favorite things to cook that she taught me are posole, carne en su jugo, tres leches pastel, ceviche and I could go on. I have truly come to love cooking mexican food and learning about their culture. It opened my eyes to unique flavors and I love trying new foods now.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year we get together before christmas and have a baking day. By the end of the day we end up with about 30 different cookies, bars, cakes..etc to hand out in cookie baskets to family members.
