Discada is a typical dish from northern mexico, it gets its name because traditionally you make in a used plow disc thats been welded shut.

Anyway discada is an alternative to a barbecue and the perfect excuse to have a beer with your friends.

Step 1:

The most important part of the discada is well the disco that in reallity is a used plow disk that has been welded shut and in this case it has an added border and handles. But you can get creative and use another thing for cooking it, maybe a large wok , skillet or something like that could work out.
Asked for the meat, they looked at me like i was crazy, what else might it be called?
<p>Here is a link to (one of the) local stores that have &quot;Mexican&quot; groceries.</p><p>The description calls it Beef Sirloin Tip. This one is sliced, it seems to be the preferred style: Milanese de Pulpa Bola.</p><p><a href="https://www.heb.com/product-detail/usda-select-milanesa-de-pulpa-bola/371646" rel="nofollow">https://www.heb.com/product-detail/usda-select-mil...</a></p><p>I did read somewhere else that &quot;pulpa&quot; means without bone. Strange, as I learned it meant &quot;pulp.&quot; Maybe it's a Mexican-Spanish word. There are also pulpa blanca, pulpa negro. Blanca is the top of the flank, I'm assuming white for the &quot;silver skin&quot; that's on it. Negro is the underside of the flank.</p><p>I added an image from carnesviba.com. Hope this helps.</p>
<p>what meat are you looking for?</p>
<p>According to this: <a href="http://www.lasrecetasdelaabuela.com/cortes/res.jpg" rel="nofollow">http://www.lasrecetasdelaabuela.com/cortes/res.jpg</a><br><br>Pulpa or pulpa bola should be the area near the shank. </p>
Please make an instructable on a home made contraption to make tacos al pastor xD D: Como extraño Mexico y sus comidas revienta-arterias! Con una salsita de aguacate y limon...
<p>Man there is no rule out there that says you have to use a vertical rotisserie to make good al pastor. Any Mexican market worth its salt will have picadillo de al pastor (chopped meat for, well, al pastor). I just used a locking grill basket to make some last night and the tacos were just as good as if I bought them at the taqueria.</p><p>http://www.amazon.com/Cuisinart-Simply-Grilling-Nonstick-Basket/dp/B001RIY9GA/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1407593638&amp;sr=8-5&amp;keywords=grill+basket</p>
<p>I make al pastor tacos on my stove, no need for any other contraption, promise I'll post an al pastor instructable real soon, oh and when i'm not in the mood for pork, I use smoked swordfish or fish for my al pastor tacos.</p>
Well i don't have a home made contraption for tacos al pastor but in the week ill make a tacos al pastor 'ible.
Why do you list the only seasoning as &quot;Jalape�tional)&quot;?
Haha, I can't imagine someone adding 300 grams of Jalapenos to that.
Forgot about that point, actually it's more like 5 or 6 smallish jalapenos o 5 or 6 equally sized serrano chiles.<br><br>Since this 'ible i've modified a bit the recipe, now instead of wasting tasty tasty beer, i first render some fat from some beef offcuts and in that fat, fry the jalapenos or serranos, and after that i continue with the recipe as is, but without using hot dogs.<br><br>Gives the meal a whole different tang to it.
What kind of sausage did you use? In the picture it looks like 'hot dogs' (frankfurters, wieners, etc)<br />
yeah you can use your generic hot dog, in fact the cheaper the better, well sort of, the whole spirit of discada is having a good meal with friends without brakeing the bank
Phwoarhhhhh!!!! Oh man, that looks GEORGEOUS!!!!!! My mouth is dribbling so much, I'm doing an impression of Niagra Falls!!!!!! I'm making this meat made heaven this weekend.
give it a review once you try it!
WHOA meat explosion! I need to try this!
that looks REALLY good! what side dishes would normally go with this?
It's a whole meal by itself, just get some tortillas some nice salsa and some cold beers and your good to go
That, is a lot of meat. I'm not a vegetarian or anything...but that is a lot of meat. It looks like a creation from a NY Deli, except it's Mexican. A NY Mexican Deli.
You can also add potatos and mushrooms to it. But the more traditional way is like te one in this ible, also if you want you can skip the part of putting sausage in, or make variations of those ingredients. Enjoy.
mmm... I'm going to have to try this at my next BBQ with "mi familia".
Oh my god, I should not look at this website just before lunch . . . That is possibly the most delicious looking thing I have ever seen.
Wow, this looks good!
