Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 4 hours
Total: 4 hours and 20 minutes



  • 2 lbs beef chuck roast
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • Corn tortillas, for serving
  • Lime wedges, for serving


  1. In a large pot, heat some oil over medium heat. Add the beef roast and sear on all sides until browned. Remove from the pot and set aside.

  2. In the same pot, add the chopped onion and minced garlic. Sauté until the onion is translucent.

  3. Add the chili powder, cumin, oregano, and cinnamon to the pot. Stir well to coat the onions and garlic.

  4. Pour in the beef broth, diced tomatoes, and chopped chipotle peppers. Stir everything together.

  5. Return the seared beef roast to the pot and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and simmer for 3-4 hours, or until the meat is tender and easily shreds.

  6. Once the meat is tender, remove it from the pot and shred it using two forks.

  7. Return the shredded meat to the pot and simmer for an additional 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.

  8. Stir in the chopped cilantro and season with salt and pepper to taste.

  9. Serve the birria with warm corn tortillas and lime wedges. Enjoy!
