  • 1/2 kilo of beef, cubed
  • 5 peppercorns
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 small piece (cube) of sweet chocolate
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 2 cloves
  • 8 Tbsp.. vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. thyme
  • 1 – 2″ stick of cinnamon
  • 1 pinch of cumin

  • 2 bay leaves
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for frying
  • Water

Garnish

  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • Corn tortillas

Preparation:

Allow the meat to soak in enough water to cover during half an hour to clean it. Drain.

Grind all the ingredients except for the bay leaves and strain.

Fry the meat in the bottom of a pressure cooker with a little oil. Add the sauce, the bay leaves and 1 1/2 cups of water, cover and cook until meat is tender.

Once done, open the pressure cooker and adjust seasonings. If the sauce seems too thin, bring to a boil and reduce.

Serve hot with the chopped onion and corn tortillas.
