Birria de Res Tacos (Beef Birria Tacos) Recipe
Authentic Mexican birria tacos, Jalisco-style, made with braised beef roast in a fragrant 3-chile sauce.
Birria is a Mexican stew made with blended chile peppers simmered with beef stew meat. Garnish with cilantro, lime, and onion.
Goat meat marinated in an ancho chile marinade is slow cooked until tender in this traditional Mexican stew, birria de ameca, for holidays.
Long time user of All Recipes. This was so good I felt compelled to review for the first time. I followed the recipe almost exactly. I only changed three things: I added chipotle peppers to the others (just because I had them on hand), I didn’t strain the sauce after blending (I like thicker sauce), and I browned in a pan and then slow cooked (4 hours on high).
Amazing! I've had birria before, but have never made it. It would be more helpful to state more specific spice amounts instead of just a "pinch", but it came out delicious nonetheless. My roast was only 2 pounds, so I removed it from the oven after about 2h15m. The meat was falling apart tender and very flavorful. I made the sauce the day before to save time. This one is a definite keeper!
Pretty darn good. Maybe a tad more chilé liquid.
Absolutely delicious!!! I saved more than 1/4 of the pepper water so I can have more broth at the end. I then soaked my tortillas with the broth ans then heated them up! Family approved :)
This recipe is AMAZING!!! The only things I did different was used minced garlic from a jar, boiled my tomatoes with my chilies, did not strain (I like thick salsa), and cooked the meat in a crock pot for 8 hours on low. I shredded the meat after and poured juice over it. Now it is ready to be put into tacos with cilantro and onions. Fixed side of beans and steamed zucchini and squash to go with it. So good! Definitely the new family favorite. I was worried about it being too spicy, but it is perfect.
