    Sharpen your own knife sir.

    Thanks for all the recipes chef John !! Use them all the time making this at the moment was awesome last time as tacos

  • Rod McKenzie on March 13, 2021

    You know that chef John would be crying if you cooked anything without Cayenne 😋

  • Jerry Foust on March 15, 2021


  • Wesley Aframian on March 17, 2021

    Chef John what do you think of searing the meat before boiling it

  • Amaru Lovecraft on March 22, 2021

    I like to add ramen for a nice treat

  • improvisewitme on April 14, 2021

    Great Seinfeld reference!

  • Josh Ooohahh on April 15, 2021

    It just hit me why Chef John's speech pattern is so familiar; he's essentially a more upbeat, less kvetchy Seinfeld.

  • TG G on April 23, 2021

    Where does one send a knife “out” for sharpening?😮

  • Blake Zaruches on April 28, 2021

    Does the authentic recipe call for ginger?

  • A T on April 30, 2021

    Chef John's way of cooking birria beef stew is the best!

  • Maria do Carmo Sobreira on April 30, 2021

    Ufff!!! You added cayenne! At some point I was afraid Chef John had been replaced with a defective clone!

  • Lawrence Taylor on May 1, 2021

    I was on the phone to the paramedics when you spiced that up, and was telling them the adress when you cut up the cayenne peppers. I sheepishly hung up and said "Never mind". You had me worried.

  • Ben Bruland on May 4, 2021

    Watching these at night again, why do I do this

  • bpm124 on May 4, 2021

    I just saw a place that serves it with ramen noodles on Youtube… Birria Ramen, I bet its delicious. I'll have to make this recipe and find out for myself. Thanks Chef John!

  • Ala Ala on May 6, 2021

    Am I allowed to use pork here? Who tried such combination?

  • Bat man on May 8, 2021

    No goat… please no goat..ever again

  • MyAlbertC on May 8, 2021

    Thank you for your video, I have viewed many of your YouTube videos and enjoy them. I love and enjoy cooking especially Mexican food since I was a young boy. I would always help my mother prepare meals for our family. It's seems that your meal preparation was a bit more work than what it should be, Mexican meals are simple and with lots of fresh flavors and a variety of Chiles to enhance your dish display. I appreciate your efforts but some of your preparation was twofold. Thank you for letting me comment on your YouTube channel. 🌶🥑🧄🍋🍅🧅🌮

  • andre the bear on May 19, 2021

    can this recipe be incorporated into instant pot?

  • Candice Kelly on May 23, 2021

    I think any boney piece would work. When I made it I purchased goat at a Mexican grocery store. They cut it up into large chunks for me. The bones added to the flavor. Used whole cinnamon. Baked in the oven until tender. If you mix the white onion and cilantro together it extends the life if the cilantro. It’ll stay super fresh over a week to use on everything, eggs, tostadas, etc

    Muy Rico , carnal .

  • Jay on June 23, 2021

    Wow! That looks absolutely fantastic! Definitely going to do this! Thanks for all you do Chef!

  • Tuffsmoygles on June 30, 2021

    send out knife for sharpening…I'm disappointed in you john. you should be sharpening your own.

  • artificialenergie on July 2, 2021

    If you substituted with goat meat how many pounds would you add? Bone in or bone out, or both?

  • thathead on July 5, 2021

    i keep coming back to this one. very delicious 😀

  • Chris O'Neill on July 5, 2021

    I can taste the color on that

  • Carly Waters on July 23, 2021

    No one would ever think it was an adobo sauce. Maybe menudo thou

  • Kirk Pinkney on August 12, 2021

    I could replace beef chuck with lean hamburger and ground chicken for some awesome meal prep

  • Brian Jennings on August 29, 2021

    .i was literally thinking.."oh good, a goat recipe!"
    like from the Cabra Dorada, in Tucson..
    ..but, beef will do, I suppose.

  • Jesus Olivares on August 31, 2021

    Birria is my dad's specialty, he had his doubts about "this guy's" recipe. He has given his approval. "Saco un diez" or in English, Ten out of Ten

    He was surprised that you used cinnamon and tomatoes, since everyone he's met tells him, "Tomatoes don't go in birria" and he only recently added cinnamon to his recipe based on my suggestion. He jested, "This guy stole my recipe!"

    He says he's going to give the honey at the end a try

  • Greg Bowen on September 1, 2021

    I made this dish with someone else recipe and it was nice, but hola! yours looks great!!!

  • Ir Angles on September 9, 2021

    I am going to try this. The honey, ginger and the pre seasoning of the meat is the difference I notice from my mom’s recipe. Thank you chef you have so many recipes, from different countries.

  • Sam A on September 14, 2021

    You have a soothing voice

  • ofek zelig on September 17, 2021

    That's just an awe-inspiring sauce!

  • William Maxey on September 23, 2021

    How hot/spicy is this? I don’t like spicy food.

  • trent brusky on September 28, 2021

    Curious…could you do this with country pork ribs?

  • James Reynold on October 2, 2021

    Okay so can someone please explain this dude’s fucking speech pacing? Like the yo and down of it? Feels like a roller coaster
    Is it an accent?? Is it a regional thing??

  • Collin Lee on October 17, 2021

    After all, John. You are the soma yukihira, of your beef birria!

    I know that didn't exactly rhyme, but it was worth a shot trying to bend the words a lil bit 😂😂😂

  • Aaron C on October 20, 2021

    Try raw pineapples to marinate the beef. It really makes the beef so tender and sweet you wouldn't have to stew it for hours. Thats at least what the chef did at my restaurant to save cost using cheaper cuts of beef yet turns out great if not better.

  • h mejia on October 22, 2021

    I love you chef John

  • roenarraiz on October 22, 2021

    This is the best thing that I've ever cooked. I used beef stock, dumped it in the Slow cooker and reduced the sauce at the end. Couldn't be easier or more delicious!

  • ae86edrift on October 22, 2021

    It's birria Sunday this weekend.

  • BARRY MALKIN on October 28, 2021

    Chef John can add any kind of, or combinations of, dried chilies as he likes because he's the Captain Stottlemeyer of his Mexican soup desire.
