The perfect combination of succulent and crispy, these stuffed tortillas are deliciously tender and infused with incredible Mexican-inspired flavour. For this Wagyu Beef Brisket Carnitas we teamed up with Corne Bornman, AKA The Ultimate Braai Master (Season 6), to develop a technique to cook this Wagyu MS 6/7 brisket.


Wagyu beef brisket is a delicious and juicy cut of meat that is perfect for carnitas. This Wagyu Carnitas recipe is made with a flavorful blend of spices and herbs and is cooked until it is tender and succulent. The result is a delicious and healthy meal that is sure to please everyone at the table.



Wagyu Beef Brisket, cut from the front quarter underneath the (throat) is a large cut that takes up about 1.55% of the Wagyu carcass. When this beef brisket is slow-cooked, it becomes crazy juicy and packed with intense taste and the tallow serves as a perfect glaze! Generally, brisket takes up to 8 to 10 hours to smoke on low heat, 1-2 hours in a pressure cooker, or 5 hours in the oven, depending on the size of the brisket.
