Tacos de Barbacoa de Res (Brisket Barbacoa)


Barbacoa is one of my favourite recipes ever! In Mexico we call barbacoa to the way the meat is cook and traditionally to cook a proper barbacoa you have to dig a hole in the ground, but eh! I do not see myself doing that in my garden, so I think I will stick to the easy option, so I used my casserole dish and after an hour or an hour and a half voila! magic happened in my kitchen and we got a wonderful aroma of a delicious barbacoa.

This time I used brisket because it is a good cut for long cooking, but because I only made barbacoa for my hubby and me, we didn’t have to wait long.

It is a very easy recipe to follow and the ingredients are also easy to find, these days major supermarkets sell ancho chillies, so there is no excuse for not making this recipe. I know you will love it.

    What are the measurements for 10 people

    1. Hi,

      For ten people I would probably do 3 or 4 kg of lamb.

    Do you add water to the saucepan with the chillis, onion, tomatoes and garlic?
