Gather the Necessary Ingredients.
To make quesabirria, you will need 2 lbs of beef skirt steak, 1 large onion, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, 3 tablespoons of grill seasoning (such as El Yucateco or similar), 4 garlic cloves, 6 to 8 tortillas, 10-12 oz grilled cheese (such as Chihuahua or Monterrey Jack cheese). Optional additional ingredients include: 1 tablespoon adobo seasoning, and sour cream.
Marinate the Meat.
Start by marinating the steak in a large bowl with the onion, garlic, oil, grill seasoning and adobo seasoning. After mixing well, cover and let sit for 30 minutes in the refrigerator. This will allow the steak to absorb all the flavors of the marinade. Once finished, remove from refrigerator and get ready to assemble your quesabirria.
Make the Adobo Sauce.
To make the delicious adobo sauce, heat the oil in a medium-large skillet over medium high heat. Add onion and garlic, stirring until both turn golden brown. Next add chiles, oregano and tomato paste. Cook for an additional 3 minutes before adding chicken stock. Stir together and simmer for 15 minutes until all liquid is mostly absorbed by the ingredients. Serve your quesabirria with this flavorful adobo sauce!
Assemble and Cook the Tacos in a Comal or Skillet.
Once the adobo sauce is ready, it's time to start cooking. Heat a comal or separate large skillet over medium heat. Take two of the tortillas and spread a thin layer of adobo sauce over each side. Place one tortilla on top of the other with the sides facing up (similar to how you would make tacos). Place a few tablespoons of cheese in the middle of the two tortillas and press them together. Cook on both sides for 3-4 minutes until golden brown and cheese has melted and combined with the adobo sauce. Enjoy!
