Beef Birria Consome Recipe

I developed this easy beef birria consomé recipe for one of our readers. She told us that she discovered a Mexican dish listed on the menu of a restaurant and because she could not remember the name, she wondered if we did.

After listening to her explanation I searched for the restaurant online and found an updated menu. After a while we discovered the items she referred to was called beef birria tacos. After doing a bit of research I also discovered that this beef birria consomé is actually an ingredient of the beef birria tacos recipe.

What a great combination of Mexican flavours. All in one place. It took a few attempts to perfect this beef birria consomé recipe, bit as we all know, practice makes perfect.
