This recipe is marinated veal head steaks, steamed and accompanied by a tree chili sauce.


8 portions
  • 1 veal head
  • 10 cloves garlic
  • 250 grams guajillo chili
  • 1 pinch oregano
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • 1 pinch ground cumin
  • 1/4 liters apple vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sea ​​salt
  • green tomatoes, for the sauce
  • garlic, for the sauce
  • onions, for the sauce
  • salt, for the sauce
  • black pepper, for the sauce
  • chile de árbol peppers, for the sauce
  • tortillas


Wash your head well with hose so that the turbinates of the nose and ears are free of blood, mucus and anything ugly that we see out there, once we clean it we drain it and dry it with a clean cloth.
Afterwards, we cook all the ingredients in water together with the vinegar. This mixture should have a slightly sour taste, slightly salty and rich in flavor, and with this we cover the head by introducing the mixture on all sides and let it rest for about an hour.
We put water in a steamer to prepare the cooking, so wrap the head in aluminum foil and take it from the mixture that is the marinade and put it in a well sealed bag and place it in the steamer and cooking time should be about 3 hours
To make the sauce we cook green tomato with garlic, onion, pepper salt and fried tree chiles and we grind all this and it is a spicy sauce but of those that even cause addiction that tastes them and fascinates you.
Once the head is cooked it is disarmed with the hands because of the tenderness of the meat, well it eats the whole trunk, the tongue, the eyes, the gizzards, the brains come out as if it were butter and accompanied with that sauce and comal tortillas is a delicacy for demanding and above all tasteful people.


This is placed at the center of the guests is disarmed and eaten as what is known colloquially as taco placero so good advantage and I hope to upload a picture soon.


Do not remove the trunk to the head just shave where you see hairs as this gives a touch that you notice that it is veal, because if it will not look like a dog hahaha
