Beef broth. Mexican recipe

24 mayo, 2021

Generally we have the idea that preparing stews or stews over low heat is synonymous with being in the kitchen all morning, but if we take into account that most of this type of preparation, all they need is a good raw material, a good flame. and time boiling alone, we can begin to consider recovering some of the traditional dishes that we had abandoned in our busy modern life or even try some new ones.

With this beef broth I have wanted to try something new for myself. Is a traditional mexican recipe, a stew similar to the ones we usually make around here, but with some slightly different ingredients although not unknown. This dish is not only cooked in Mexico and not only with these ingredients, it happens like almost all the traditional dishes of any country, has as many different versions as families they cook it, and as always the one of the grandmother of each one is the best.


1 kilo of beef with bone, 200 grams of chickpeas soaked for 12 hours, 1 onion, 1 ear of raw corn, 1 carrot, 1 handful of green beans, 1/2 zucchini, 1 large potato, 1/4 of cabbage , 3 cloves of garlic, 12 peppercorns, water and salt.

Difficulty | Short


We will serve the beef broth in individual plates, the ingredients well distributed so that they touch everyone equally.

And if our stomachs are as tanned as Mexicans have, we can sprinkle each plate with a little chopped coriander and a little chili powder.
