From Guadalajara with Love: Carne en su Jugo

Bowl of carne en su jugo, garnished with radishes, cilantro and paired with freshly made tortillas

By Miguel Guerrero

Carne en su jugo, translating to "meat in its own juices," embodies true comfort in a bowl. Originating from Jalisco (specifically, the city of Guadalajara), this beloved dish holds a special place in my heart. It was the very first dish I tasted during my first visit to my family in Guadalajara, and with each spoonful, I find myself transported back to those cherished moments with my mama and abue. This Mexican beef stew bursts with flavor from its base of bright salsa made with tomatillos, onions, garlic, cilantro, and serrano peppers. Add steak, beans, bacon, and spring onions, and you've got a hearty dish that's perfect year-round. And no serving of carne en su jugo is complete without warm tortillas to soak up every last drop of flavor.

If you ever find yourself in Guadalajara, be sure to visit Karne Garibaldi who are famously known for their carne en su jugo.
