Mexican Pot Roast
3 tablespoons lard
3 pounds beef round steak
4 garlic buds, mashed
3 ripe tomatoes, unpeeled and chopped
3 potatoes, peeled and quartered
3 carrots, cut into chunks
2 onions, sliced thick
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
2 bay leaves
2 1/2 cups hot water
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Heat lard in a cast iron Dutch oven.
Cut through the fatty round on the steak and brown it on both sides.

To garnish, cut fresh jalapenos in half, scoop out the seeds, rinse and pat dry, then fill with cream cheese sprinkled with paprika or chile powder.
