Birria-Inspired Buns



  • 1kg beef brisket, unrolled
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1 chopped carrot
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 crushed garlic clove
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 1 tsp each oregano and ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 500g passata
  • 150ml beef stock
  • Buns and sides, to serve
  • Preheat the oven to 160C. Heat the oil in a large lidded casserole and brown the beef all over, then remove and set aside. Toss the onion and carrot in the same pan and cook for 7 mins to soften. Stir in the garlic, ginger and spices, and cook for 5 mins more.
  • Stir in the passata and stock, return the beef to the pan and cook - covered - in the oven for 3 hours, turning the beef halfway through. When ready, shred the beef between two forks and mix back into the sauce. Allow to cool slightly, then stuff into buns with cheese, pickles and all your favourite sides.
