This dish, popular in the northern states of Mexico, is called “Discada”, since it is usually prepared in a large disc. Traditionally people used a tractor plow disc that had been adapted to cook with over an open fire. The disc had the holes sealed, handles attached, sometimes a border added to keep the contents from spilling, and a very fine sanding and thorough cleaning is always done to be able to cook on it. It was also cured before cooking using the same procedure you’d use to cure a cast iron pan.
This dish is a meat lover’s dream, and in Mexico, men are usually the ones in charge of cooking it. This recipe includes a varied selection of meats that are cooked together to form one of the most delicious treats you can imagine. Every single family has their own recipe, their own preference on the selection of cuts of meats, and even their favorite beer to add. Some also add canned tomato juice, while others add store bought seasonings. Either way, the end result is always a meal to remember and prepare with the whole family.
