Our barbacoa is delicious, slow smoked shredded beef mixed in our own unique blend of spices for a twist on this authentic Central and South American dish. Barbacoa originated in central America and refers to slow cooked meats, where the word “barbeque” derives from. Originally, a barbacoa, or barbecue, wasn’t a way of cooking food, but the name of the structure use by natives to smoke their food. Traditionally, the meat is wrapped in leaves, seasoned with herbs and spices, and steam cooked in an underground oven. It is cooked until tender and succulent. Due to this relatively complicated traditional cooking process, barbacoa is considered a delicacy and not an everyday Mexican fare. Today, the term barbacoa is used for a similar preparation made on a stovetop or slow cooker. Barbacoa was later adopted into southwestern United State cuisine and transformed in time to “barbecue.”
