"Carne en su jugo" translates to "meat cooked its own juice". This recipe was passed down to me by my mother-in-law from Guadalajara Mexico. Its a delicious type of Mexican stew slow cooked in a green tomatillo based sauce. Wonderful served over beans with freshly grilled white corn tortillas. Select a well marbled chuck roast and I found peppered bacon gives a great flavor, but any "smoked" bacon will do nicely. Now I know the recipe says to use chicken bouillon and that may contradict some beef/poultry cooking rules but it is how the recipe goes. So don't reach for your beef bouillon instead of the chicken. Trust me :)
