Merry Christmas to all blogger family! Hopefully, you had a great time with all your beloved ones!
Here, in Mexico, everyone has arrived before Christmas Day and the house has been really full. So in that occasion, discada has been prepared by one of my brothers in law. Have you ever eaten discada? I have never eaten it before so I was really looking forward to try it as my brother in law is well know here for the best one! ❤ Who knows what kind of magic he uses… Love for cooking maybe 😉
Discada is mixed meat dish combined with vegetables and well known in Nothern Mexico mainly. All meats, sausages, chorizo and vegetables are made on an agricultural plow disc harrow and that´s why the name “discada”. This disk is usually placed over an open flame and ingredients prepared separately as I am going to show you later on 🙂 This disk looks like huge Wok pan, made from the cast iron so you can imagine it gives an earthy flavor.
What do you need:
900 g beef (usually a flank cut)
900 g pork
450 g bacon
2 big pack of sausages
4 pieces of Mexican chorizo
4 pieces of orange pepper
4 pieces of green pepper
4 large white onions
2 handful of fresh cilantro
Firstly, start with frying of bacon. Stir occasionally chopped bacon, until it is crisp. Afterwards, take it out and cook chopped peppers, onions and sausages. When almost ready, add Mexican chorizo. Cook and keep stirring chorizo until it breaks into pieces and vegetables turns brownish.
When vegetables done, remove it from disk and add meat – chopped beef and pork. Cook with beer until soft and tender.
At the end add tomatoes, cook it briefly with stirring. You can optionally add chopped chillies (jalapeños). To finalise, add chopped cilantro and crispy bacon. You can serve with tortillas and avocado! Truly delicious dish!
