The Ultimate Jewish Burrito

Photo from

A Tasting Table video recently stopped us in our tracks, and we think you should know about it: Behold the Borscht Burrito. It’s the Russian-meets-Tex-Mex meal of your dreams.

Stuffed with slow-cooked Texas-style brisket, beet pico de gallo, Russian rice pilaf, cabbage coleslaw, and fresh dill, this hybrid burrito is the brainchild of Sasha Shor, the owner and chef at Tres Carnes, a Texas-inspired taco joint in NYC.

Russian-born and Nashville-rasied, Shor has the kind of culinary perspective that spans continents and flavors. Although she doesn’t share her recipe, just a little bit of recipe sleuthing can get you pretty close.
