Jaliscan Birria Seasoning Kit 75g

This kit contains Mexican chillies, Birria Spice Mix, Mexican Oregano and a recipe sheet to make Birria, a Jaliscan style of ‘barbacoa’.

Barbacoa is a pre-Hispanic cooking technique in Mexican cuisine where meat is slowly steam-roasted in a smouldering underground pit until fall-apart tender. In this recipe from Jalisco, beef is marinated in red Mexican chillies, Birria Spice Mix and Mexican Oregano, covered tightly and slow-cooked in the oven. The marinade combines with the beef juices to make a spicy red broth with a hint of smokiness. Serve in bowls with broth and corn tortillas on the side. Leftover meat can be used to make Quesabirrias - the ultimate quesadilla.
