The most traditional dishes for the holiday season are turkey and ham. They’re the dishes everyone looks forward to, but there are moments when we feel like trying something new and different. Lamb is one great alternative. When I think of lamb meat, the first thing that comes to mind is birria. Birria is one of the most traditional dishes from the state of Jalisco.
Traditionally, birria is cooked in an underground stove covered in maguey leaves. The taste of birria cooked in this traditionally manner is unique because it highlights the taste of the meat. You can also prepare it using your slow cooker. Served it a simple sauce of tomato and spices, the birria is a wonderful alternative during these festive times.
