  1. Heat lard or oil in large Dutch oven over medium heat until hot. Add beef; cook, turning occasionally, until brown on all sides, 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Remove to plate.
  3. Add onions and garlic to pan; sauté over medium heat until soft, 6 to 8 minutes.
  4. Add stock, pequin chiles, thyme and oregano; heat over medium-high heat to boiling.
  5. Add tomatillos to pan. If using fresh tomatillos, cook over medium heat until fork-tender, about 10 minutes.
  6. Add beef to pan, pushing it down so it is surrounded by liquid.

  9. Remove beef, potatoes and chayote to warm serving platter; keep warm, covered.
  10. Process 1/2 the cooking sauce in blender at a time until smooth.
  11. Return sauce to pan; cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until reduced to 4 cups, 20 to 25 minutes.
  12. Stir in cilantro.
  13. Garnish beef with remaining poblano chile strips.
