Chef Mohamad Elbanna from the Birria Bros, joins Gayle Guyardo, the host of the nationally syndicated health and wellness show, Bloom, with a jackfruit taco recipe that brings savory, Palestinian flavors to the Bay Area.

Jackfruit Birria Tacos

  • The Jackfruit is strained to ensure all water content is removed, it is then marinated in Birria Spices and our Birria Bros Pepper blend (Ancho, Guajillo, Pasilla, Arbol & Chipotle peppers + oven roasted Onions + Garlic) Marinated for 24 hours then oven roasted. 
  • A vegetable trio is sautéed in garlic, onion, tomato sauce + spices along with dehydrated lemon, cardamom, clove, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, pepper, salt & the Birria Bros Pepper blend to make a plant-based “consomme”
  • I use that to hydrate the jackfruit after roasting it in the oven. Let the jackfruit roast for another 1-2 hours to develop flavor. 
  • From there we warm up some tortillas, add cheese, add Jackfruit Birria & get tacos nice & crispy. After a fold and crisp on both sides, tacos are ready to be eaten.
