For the venison birria meat:


For serving 


  1. Begin by patting the venison roast dry with a paper towel and salting it with 1 teaspoon of the salt.
  2. Heat a large saucepan over medium/medium-high heat, add the oil and sear on all sides.
  3. Add the remaining birria meat ingredients to a slow cooker.
  4. When the meat is seared, add it to the slow cooker and cook for 8 hours on low (try to do 8 on low, not 4 on high if you can. The meat is juicier and more tender).
  5. When the meat is tender, shred it and set aside.
  6. Mix together the onion, cilantro, a bit of lime juice and a pinch of salt.
  7. Dip a tortilla into the top of the slow cooker to cover it in broth and fat from the broth.
  8. Add the tortilla to a pan or skillet and sear, adding the cheese and meat. Fold and sear on both sides until crisp.
  9. Add the onion and cilantro mixture to the taco and serve with a cup of broth on the side for dipping. Enjoy!
