  • Birria Tacos by Barry Horne

    Birria Tacos by Barry Horne

    (serves 4)


    Ingredients: 


    For the stew:

    1kg grass-fed beef chuck (in large chunks)

    100g chipotle in adobo 

    2 onions (diced chunky)

    2-3 garlic cloves

    2-3 tomatoes (diced chunky)

    1 stick of cinnamon

    1ltr beef stock

    1tsp ground cumin

    salt and pepper

    vegetable oil 


    For the tacos:

    12 fresh corn tortillas

    1 red onion (finely diced)

    10g coriander (chopped)

    2-3 limes

    200g cheese (like a mozzarella or Oaxacan Cheese if you can get it)



    Method:

    Start the stew by getting a large pot on a medium high heat and adding a small amount of vegetable oil. Season the beef well and sear in batches until nicely coloured. Remove the beef and add the diced onion and garlic the pot and cook for 3-4 mins to get a small amount of colour. Add the tomatoes, cinnamon, ground cumin and cook for another 1-2 mins. Put the beef back and cover with the beef stock, season well, bring to the boil and reduce to a simmer and cook for 2-3 hours or until the beef is starting to break apart.

    Remove the beef from the liquid and put to one side, leave it to rest and come down in temperature before shredding as its just as important as leaving a steak to rest. 

    Blend everything that remains in the pot (removing the cinnamon stick) and check for seasoning.

    Shred the beef and season again with salt and pepper and a small amount of the cooking liquid.

    Now it’s time to assemble the tacos; at the top of the stewing liquid you should have some fat from the beef, remove this and add it to a tray, you will use this to dip your tacos into before frying.

    Get a large frying pan on a medium high heat and dip the tortilla into the beef fat and place in the pan, add a small amount of cheese and the some of the beef and fold over, fry for 1-2 mins then flip and fry again for another 1-2 mins until the cheese is melted and golden.

    Place the cooked tortillas in a warm place while you do the rest and when they are all done serve them alongside a bowl of the cooking broth and top each bowl with coriander, red onion and a good squeeze of lime. Use this to dunk the tacos into and then drink with a spoon after.

  • Middle Eastern Lamb Cutlets with Tomato & Onion Salad by Barry Horne

    Middle Eastern Lamb Cutlets with Tomato & Onion Salad by Barry Horne

    serves 2


    Ingredients: 

    8-10 free-range lamb cutlets (depending on how big an eater you are)

    2 cloves of garlic (purée)

    1tbsp tomato purée 

    2 large beef tomatoes

    1 red onion

    3 sprigs of mint leaves 

    Juice of ½ a lemon

    Salt 

    Pinch of cumin 

    Pinch of smoked paprika 


    Lebanese 7 spice mix:

    1tsp Ground Cumin 

    1tsp Ground Coriander

    1tsp Ground Cinnamon 

    1tsp Ground Nutmeg 

    1tsp Ground Clove 

    1tsp Ground Black Pepper

    1tsp Ground All Spice 


    Method:

    Make the Lebanese spice mix first, simply mix all ingredients together and add 2tsp of salt to the mixture also. You can make this in large batches and it will keep in an airtight container. 

    In a mixing bowl, add the lamb cutlets, the tomato purée and garlic and cover the cutlets in the mixture then liberally sprinkle on the seven spice mix until the cutlets are well coated and leave to one side. You can also marinade this in advance if you like but it’s perfectly fine to cook at this stage also. 

    Make the tomato salad by slicing the tomato into thick slices and adding to a bowl, finely slice the red onion and add. Chop the mint and add and then season the whole salad with salt, a pinch of cumin and a pinch of smoked paprika and a nice squeeze of lemon juice. 

    Cook the cutlets either on the BBQ or in a pan. 

    Heat a pan on a medium high heat and add a small amount of oil. Add the cutlets but don’t overcrowd the pan as you won’t get nice colour on the cutlets. 

    Cook on one side for 2-3 mins, turn and cook for another 2 mins then leave to rest for 5 mins. 

    Serve all together on a board with your tomato and onion salad.
