Low & slow cooked beef barbacoa traditionally requires specialist ingredients. Our easy, store cupboard version is super simple, pull-apart tender and is the perfect meat for beef burritos or burrito bowls.
Cooking braising steak slow and low with lots of spices makes for tasty meat. This dish is pretty much hands-off; chuck it all into a pot and let it cook for three or four hours. Cook once and then use this in multiple meals from burritos and salads or enchiladas and nachos.
Mexican Beef Burrito Recipe
We love to serve our beef barbacoa with an array of side dishes to let people build their own beef burritos or burrito bowls.
Must haves include:
Guacamole – The beef is spicy so we make our guacamole very mild.
Fresh Tomato Salsa – Remember that tomatoes are really fruit so their natural sweetness complements deep flavoured, smokey beef.
Sour Cream – We stir some Fat Man Chilli Habanero sauce through the sour cream. Warning: Only for those who love the spicy!
Black beans – adding beans not only makes your beef burrito more healthy but it also helps the beef go a long way. We mix equal parts beans and beef barbacoa and we then get lots of leftovers.
