Here in New Mexico, the indigenous and Mexican traditions call for searing thinly sliced red meat over a wood fire and eating this with bread, chiles and fried potatoes. You can find thinly sliced filets of red meats at most all Mexican grocers, and thin cut rib eyes of bison, buffalo, filets of mutton and venison at local whole foods style grocers all over the country. What you do is set your coals and wood up for medium-high to ultra-high heat searing and cook to desired doneness, preferably medium-rare with charred bits and no grill marks. Frequent turning creates a great crust on the outside of the meat. You then tear apart chunks or thinly slice the meat, place it in a flat piece of fried but flexible bread dough, add a piece of roasted chile, preferably Hatch green, and then top with some fried potatoes and salt. Navajos make frybread in cast iron skillets with lard after frying potatoes and a little onion. Mexicans make sopapillas. You can by mixes for these and they taste similar. You can even fry thin round flats of pizza dough till lightly browned. Fold this up and enjoy! Seared Coffee and cocoa rubbed bison rib eye filet sandwich: I just rubbed some bison rib eye filets with coffee, cocoa, spices and hot chile oil and seared them over pecan wood. Roasted green chiles, fried potatoes and onions went in a homemade frybread with the meat. The gamey flavor is important to the dish as this is true frontier food! I would love to know if anyone else cooks like this on their kamado!?
