Recipe for burritos with beef and pasilla-orange-sauce
Burritos are originally from Mexico and are wheat tortillas, which are stuffed with meat, chilisauce and sometimes beans and then tightly rolled. In the US-American variant are often added salad, tomatoes, vegetables and sour cream.
Ingredients for 4 persons
400 g of beef steak
6 dried pasilla chillies
4 wheat tortillas
100 g grated cheddar (or other cheese, e.g. gouda)
2 cloves of garlic
3 bay leaves
¼ cup of orange juice
a few small cubes of panela, jaggery or raw cane sugar
fresh coriander, finely chopped
oil for frying
Soak the dried Pasilla chilis in 250 ml of hot water for about 10 minutes. Fry half a diced onion, the chopped garlic cloves and the two cut tomatoes in a pan. Peel the chillies and add them. Add a cup of hot water and stir, add panela and bay leaves and season with salt and pepper. Allow to simmer for at least 10 minutes - the longer, the better the taste unfolds. Then take the pan from the stove and add some orange juice. After that remove the bay leaves and puree the rest in the pan. If the sauce is too spicy, add more orange juice and panela.
Pound the meat, sear briefly in some oil, then cut into very small pieces and again fry briefly.
Add the pasilla and orange sauce, simmer for 5 minutes on small flame and stir occasionally.
Chop the remaining onion and coriander separately.
Heat the wheat tortillas in a fresh pan. Then place the meat sauce on the tortillas and scatter some cheese, onions, and coriander over it. If necessary, sprinkle with some lime juice and add some fresh salad, tomato slices and sour cream to taste. Firmly roll and serve.
Guacamole and a green salad match this.
