Braised Pork Brisket Tacos Recipe. Pork Brisket? What's pork brisket? Well pork brisket is the same group of muscles as Beef Brisket it's just that most butchers don't sell it as it's own cut. The pork brisket is usually left on and cut between other pork shoulder roasts. Since we had a pork brisket on hand... I thought I would slow braise the pork brisket and make some pulled pork brisket tacos with the fresh flour tortillas I made earlier in the day.


Pork brisket 1 Kilogram
Dried guajillo chiles 1
Low hop beer 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Pineapple vinegar 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm)
White onion 1 Large
Taco seasoning mix 2 Teaspoon
Coarse salt 1 Teaspoon
Tomato paste 2 Tablespoon
Lime juice 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)



1. Preheat the oven to 100 ºC (225ºF).

2. Remove the stems and seeds from the dried guajillo chili, and toast in a hot dry cast iron pan.

3. Place the beer, vinegar, garlic, onion, tacos seasoning, tomato paste, salt, Guajillo, and lime juice, in a blender or food processor and puree.

4. Put the brisket in the pan, then pour the braising liquid over top.

5. Cover with a tight lid and put in the oven.

6. Cook until the brisket is tender, and can be pulled apart with a fork, about 4 hours.

7. Remove from the oven; place the brisket in a bowl and shred.

8. Place the pan on the stovetop over medium heat, and reduce the braising sauce until thickened.

9. Mix the chopped up brisket back into the reduced braising liquid.


10. Serve and Enjoy!
