  • Skillet or Flat top grill


  • 12 Street Taco Sized Corn Tortillas
  • 12 Slices Smoked Mozzarella or Mexican Mozzarella
  • 1 Pound Smoked brisket or burnt ends
  • Beef Tallow or lard or cooking oil for frying
  • 2 Cups Au jus or flavorful beef broth


  • Add the au jus or beef broth to a small pot along with the cooked smoked brisket. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Heat the beef tallow or cooking oil over medium heat. Working in batches, fry the corn tortillas for about 30 seconds.
  • After frying for 30 seconds flip the tortillas over and add a slice of the mozzarella to each corn tortilla. Fry for 30 seconds, then add some of the warm brisket to half of the tortillas.
  • Place the tortillas with the brisket and cheese on top of those with just cheese. Fold over into a taco and cook until the cheese is melty.
  • Remove to a paper towel lined plate. Repeat the process with the remaining tacos.
