Discada Norteña Recipe

Discada nortena recipe mexicana

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.

Tostadas de la siberia recipe receta
Monterrey, NL, an industrial city with a very dynamic way of life, is the third largest city in Mexico. We lived there for 6 years, and enjoyed its culture, gastronomy, and many natural attractions. Monterrey is known as the “city of the mountains”, as it sits next to the Sierra Madre Mountain Range. Its gastronomy includes a large selection of dishes based on beef and pork, and the people in this city love grilling all year around.

This is a very popular dish sold at a chain of restaurants called “Tostadas la Siberia”, in the city of Monterrey. You can also find them in other restaurants sold as “La Siberia-Style Tostadas”.

Habanero Tomatillo Salsa Recipe

Habanero salsa recipe

Habaneros and tomatillos come together in this recipe to make a remarkably wholesome salsa; the tomatillos cool down the spiciness of the habaneros and add a little bit of sharpness to the flavor of the salsa. This recipe has only two main ingredients, but you can play around with it and add your own personal touch.

Salsas are a very common part of our everyday cooking. They’re so commonplace, in fact, that it can be hard to have a meal in Mexico without one. You might start your day off with some eggs covered in salsa, or a salsa mixed in with scrambled eggs. If you don’t have breakfast, maybe you’ll have a late brunch of tacos topped with salsa. And then for your midday meal, you’ll enjoy a plate with rice and a dish cooked in some sort of other salsa! Whether it’s made with fresh or dried peppers, we can’t avoid having around a good salsa.
