How to make Birria de res Jalisco style:
To begin the birria de res recipe, chop the beef into cubes of approximately 2 cm.
Tip: You can use any cut of beef you prefer.
Blend the tomatoes with the onion, garlic, and oregano, adding half a liter of water.
Place the minced meat in a pressure cooker and pour what you blended, add salt and bay leaves, add the remaining half liter of water, and cover. Turn on the heat and when the pressure valve starts to beep, count 40 minutes at medium heat and remove. Beef birria in an express pot is much easier and faster to make, but if you don’t have one, you can use a normal pot, taking into account that the cooking time will be double.
While the meat is cooking, prepare the sauce. To do this, boil the tomatillos with the chiles in a pot for 8 minutes.
When they are boiled, blend these ingredients with a clove of garlic, a piece of onion and season with a pinch of salt and set aside.
Once the meat is cooked, you can begin to serve your beef birria. If you will eat it in broth, serve it with enough broth and accompany it with a little onion and cilantro. If you prefer it in a taco, serve it in warm corn tortillas with some cooked meat, add onion and cilantro, and a touch of the sauce you prepared. Did you notice how easy it is? Now all that’s left is to enjoy this delicious Jalisco-style beef birria recipe.
