Texas Trends: Birria

By: Mando Rayo

Birria de Res has arrived in Texas and it seems nobody can get enough of this red hot taco trend but don’t tell that to the goat birria die-hards. In this episode, we dissect the Birria trend, beef, and goat, from its century-old roots in central Mexico to its newfound popularity as Texas’s latest taco trend. We’ll also learn how Tejanos are adapting the dish for brisket-hungry local palates. Guest include Josh Palacio, El Remedio (San Antonio) and Chris Morrill, Taco Shop El Paso (El Paso).
