Mazatlán Stile Asado

Mazatlán Stile Asado

There are a few things that characterized the city of Mazatlán in the state of Sinaloa Mexico. It's known for its music, the people, the beach and of course the food culture.  

A very good example of that is the Asado Mazatleco. A very simple dish made out of meat and potatoes cut into little cubes, which then you fry,  and then topped with vegetables and a delicious consomé (beef broth). 

I want to share with you this delicious recipe hoping that you will love it as much as my family and I do.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb Cuete de res (Eye of Round)
  • 1 lb  potatoes cut into cubes
  • 1 cup tomato puree
  • 2 liters  of water
  • 2 cups  of cut lettuce
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 purple onion
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 2 limes
  • 1 zucchini cut into cubes and cooked
  • 1 carrot cut into cubes and cooked
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1/4 tsp Mexican oregano
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 5 whole black pepper
  • 2 tbs of chicken bouillon. 
  • cream
  • 1/2 cup of grated cotija cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • frying oil.

You will need an instant pot or a pressure cooker to cook the meat faster.

 

Direction:

  1. Place the meat in the instant pot or the pressure pot with the 2 liters of water, add the garlic, whole pepper, white onion, cumin, oregano,  tomato puree, the two tomatoes, and some chicken bouillon. Cook for 45 minutes. ( 45 minutes under high-pressure cooking in the instant pot or 45 minutes in the pressure pot start counting when the steam doesn't come out of the little vent). 
  2. Make pickled onion just tossing together the purple onion, lime juice, and a little bit of white vinegar, salt,  and pepper, and let it rest for 30 min.
  3. Once the meat is done, open the lid when is safe to do it ( in the instant pot you will see that the timer is done and the steam button is down, the pressure pot make sure to put it under running cold water and the steam button is all the way down).  Taste and make salt and pepper adjustments.
  4. Take the meat out, let it cool down a little bit, and then cut it into little cubes.
  5. In a frying pan, add then oil take it to medium heat, put some salt on the potatoes and fry them until they start getting soft,  then take the heat to high and add the meat, cook until the meat is golden crispy.
  6. On a plate, put an amount of the meat and potato mix first, then add the vegetables,  lettuce, cream, cheese, avocado, and pickled onion.  On the side, serve a cup of the broth with some lime juice if you want, and you can add it on top of your Asado. You can serve this dish with some refried beans and warm tortillas, and maybe a spicy salsa.
