I Love Barbacoa

In my opinion, Barbacoa is especially delicious and this recipe is no exception.  I’ve studied and sampled various recipes over the years and I believe what I’m offering you today is, as always, geared towards the best of the best.  It’s meaty with a medium to a hot kick you can control, with plenty of seasoning and spice.  And this particular dish will turn your entire home into what smells like an authentic professional restaurant.

How to make Barbacoa the Best

You’re going to find that the bulk of this Barbacoa recipe is cooked with a 4 lbs Beef Chuck, just to keep it simple.  But you can take this a step further by adding Oxtails, Cheek Meat or pork spare and baby back ribs to up the gaminess; which I highly recommend but it’s not required.  You’ll still turn out some amazing Barbacoa following this easy recipe.  You’re also going to need my Homemade Enchilada Sauce to complete this recipe but I’ve added the ingredients to the list below as well as the link to the originally post if you need it.

Carne Asada Recipe with lengua (Beef Tongue)

Carne Asada RecipeMy Easy Carne Asada Recipe

A friend of mine introduced me to Lengua, which is Beef Tongue.  He brought it in to work one day all prepared and ready to eat.   I’m sure you can imagine my hesitation when he offered me a taco full of the meat.  Long story short, to my surprise it was delicious and I use it now for a Carne Asada recipe. This by far makes some of the most delicious tacos I have ever eaten! A slow roast in a Crockpot starts first thing in the morning before I go to work and it’s ready to shred, season and sear when I come home. Throw in all my favorite fresh vegies and some white corn tortillas and we’re good to go!

About this Carne Asada recipe

This recipe is very simple and practically all the work is done for you.  If you’ve sought out this recipe I’m sure you’ve had beef tongue before and you’re probably not looking to expand your horizons just to try it for the first time now are you.  So you are well aware that you are going to have to remove the skin once the tongue is fully cooked.  You’ll need a slow cooker(unless you prefer the oven), a sharp knife, a Beef Tongue, Canola oil, fresh garlic, your favorite onions and/or scallions, cilantro,1 lime, salt and pepper, and last but not least your favorite tortilla’s.

Introducing my Carne Asada recipe

1  Beef Tongue
1 handful chopped Cilantro
1 Lime (squeezed)
½ Diced Bell Pepper
1/2 Diced White or Yellow onion (your preference)
1 tsp. Minced garlic
2 Green onion stalks diced into Scallions
Salt and pepper to taste

Carne asada recipe instructions

10 hours of cook time in a slow cooker on low heat. Then separate the meat from the tongue skin and slice the meat into your desired portions.  Once that is completed, sear the beef in a skillet with Canola oil, garlic, onions, and cilantro. One whole lime is added during the sear which is really important because this is what really gives the Lengua its additional flavor.  This Carne Asada recipe is going to require salt and pepper to your personal taste, and in my experience a lot of salt.
