Very curious about this one. So here’s a little background on birria –
Birria (Spanish: [ˈbirja] (listen)) is a Mexican dish from the state of Jalisco. It is a traditional soup or stew made from a combination of chili pepper-based goat meat adobo, garlic, cumin, bay leaves, and thyme, and cooked at a low heat. Birria is slow-stewed in a pot (olla), and differs from barbacoa, which is cooked underground. Beef, lamb, sheep, chicken, or vegan meat substitutes are alternatives for goat. It may be seasoned and garnished with onion, cilantro, and lime. It is commonly accompanied with handmade corn tortillas. Birria is one of the most famous dishes from Central Mexico including Jalisco and Michoacan. Each municipality and state is said to have its own version of this dish. The most famous are goat birria from Apatzingan, Michoacan and from Guadalajara, Jalisco San Pedro Tlaquepaque, are also well known for the quality of their birria.
Restaurants or street carts that serve birria are known as birrierias and exist throughout Mexico, especially in Michoacan and Jalisco. Neighboring Mexican states have their own variations of the dish, including birria style Zacatecas and the birria de Colima.
I didn’t realize it was goat meat! That makes it more interesting and me wishing I had some – I’ll have to use beef I suppose for garnish. It sounds really good and people have been sharing pictures of combining ramen and birria for awhile now. Let’s give this a try!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added sauteed beef, cilantro, soft egg, and fried onion. The noodle probably would have done better using microwave directions, but not too bad. The broth is very interesting. There’s a spiciness, and then this flavor that honestly reminds me of duck instant varieties; also almost reminds me of varieties of soups where blood is used. It’s savory and deep – very interesting. Impressed. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 780707105498.
