If you’ve ever been to a Mexican restaurant in New York, chances are you’ve tasted the birria landia, or lamb stewed in wine. This is a deliciously savory dish, and a great addition to your dinner menu. You can even order a delivery from Birria-Landia in the Bronx, if you’re looking for some home cooking.
Tijuana-style birria de res
Tijuana-style birria de res has emerged as one of the hottest foods in Los Angeles, and beyond. The Mexican meat stew is served in tacos.
These are made with a meat blend marinated in adobo, and topped with an intensely flavorful consomme broth.
Teddy’s Red Tacos is a birria specialty food truck in Los Angeles. The restaurant’s name comes from its cooking process.
It started out as a taco truck but has since expanded to a brick-and-mortar location on Slauson Avenue in South L.A.
Birria de res has gained in popularity in the past few years. This is largely thanks to a photo that made the world want to dunk their tacos into the beef-rich, glistening pools of broth.
However, the dish dates back to Jalisco. In the mid-’80s, the dish began to gain popularity in Tijuana.
As Tijuana-style birria has evolved, so have the food trucks that serve it. Originally, birria de res was cooked in outdoor pits. Nowadays, it’s more common to see it cooked in ovens.
Before Teddy’s Red Tacos, there was a time when birria de res was a relatively unknown food in the U.S. However, the influx of non-Latino consumers has turned the dish into a bonafide sensation.
Several other taco trucks have popped up since Teddy’s Red Tacos opened. AZ Taco King, for example, has a menu dedicated to Tijuana-style birria.
Other places such as Mawi Tortillas in New Orleans have been able to keep their business afloat by serving birria de res.
Chile-braised lamb birria
Birria, which means “message” in Spanish, is a delicious meat stew made with goat, beef, or mutton. It is cooked with chilis, garlic, and spices. It is a traditional dish from the state of Jalisco in Mexico.
Birria can be served with various dipping sauces. One option is to make an annatto sauce. Another is to use the leftover braising liquid.
If you want to add some crunch, try a cabbage slaw. A squeeze of lime is also a good addition.
To start, chiles should be soaked in hot water for 15 minutes. They should be browned on the outside before they are added to the recipe. You will need a large bowl to soak the chiles.
Once you have the chiles’ soaking, you can blend them with the other ingredients. After you’ve finished blending them, you should transfer them to a Dutch oven.
Next, you’ll need to add ancho and chipotle chiles to the stew. You can add a few onions to the sauce as well. Finally, you’ll need a couple of fresh limes.
Now that you have your stew, you can serve it. The best way to serve it is with a dipping sauce. Make a birria-inspired dipping sauce by mixing 2 cups of your birria stew with chopped onion. This dipping sauce is especially great with tacos.
Birria-Landia – The Bronx delivery
The Birria-Landia – The Bronx delivery experience will have you drooling. And you may want to stop by for a taste of their Tijuana-style beef tacos, mulitas and churros.
They are also known for their consome, a tangy sauce best dipped in their tostadas. You may even get a free one with your order, but you may have to wait a few days. So, be sure to bring your A game if you plan on eating here.
Their birria tacos, mulitas, and churros are some of the best in the tristate area. But, if you’re in the mood for something a bit more elaborate, there is also their second location in Williamsburg.
Considering the recent spate of hipster taquerias opening in the neighborhood, it’s no wonder they’re so popular.
The best part is, the place is under the tracks, so you can get some real New York City action as you enjoy your lunch or dinner. Until they open in the Bronx,
you can still get your birria blitz fix at their Jackson Heights location. Or, you could head to their new Fordham Manor location next week to satisfy your Tijuana-style craving.
In case you’re not from around here, the Bronx is home to many of the city’s best Mexican eateries, and the Birria-Landia atop the Fordham Manor will no doubt be a welcome addition.
