A morcon is basically a beef roll. It's usually a chunk of beef, butterflied and sometimes pounded until evenly thin all over, and then rolled with hotdogs, cheese, bell peppers, and hard-boiled eggs on the inside. It is then braised until the beef is tender in a super flavorful sauce made dark and delicious from the soy sauce. 

It's a classic Christmas recipe that's commonly made and served during Noche Buena. However, it needs time to tenderize the beef. If you want to cut cooking time, why not try it with this easy ingredient swap? This chicken roll recipe is made like a morcon so you still make a delicious morcon dish but without the long cooking time. 

 
This morcon is the easier-to-cook version since it's made with chicken, not beef.
