10 portions
  • 3 kilos beef, (chest or platanillo)
  • 3 pasilla chiles
  • 7 california (anaheim) chili peppers
  • 7 guajillo chiles
  • 1 bag aromatic herb, (pepper, coriander seeds and laurel)
  • 2 onions
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 2 onions
  • 4 tablespoons chicken bouillon
  • 1 tablespoon sea ​​salt
  • 1/2 tablespoons ginger
  • pork bones, or beef to taste
  • 1 tablespoon pepper
  • water, necessary amount


Cook over medium heat the meat and bones with bay leaves, 1/2 onion and 1/2 tablespoon of sea salt with enough water to cover them well, when it breaks the boil the fire is lowered to the minimum and boil for at least 30 minutes before adding the sauce.
To prepare the sauce, all chiles are washed and dried, reserved. In a large frying pan, fry 1/2 chopped onion and garlic with a little oil. When the onion is fried, transfer it to the blender. In the same pan, add more oil and fry the chiles, once they are toasted. they are passed to the same blender.
In the same blender add the bag of spices, chicken broth, ginger, salt and pepper, add a little water and liquefy very well. This sauce is added to the meat that is boiling adding more water and correcting salt.
Let it boil until the meat is well cooked.


Place the uncooked meat in a clay dish, add broth.


The lower the fire, the softer the meat, if you have a slow cooker you can cook the meat for 8-10 hours before adding the sauce.
