This ’10-Pound Burrito’ Is Probably Way More Than 10 Pounds

We’re no strangers to big burritos here at Foodbeast, but this monster is on a whole new level, weighing in at an astonishing 10 pounds, and being stuffed with every single meat that L.A.’s Tacos El Venado has to offer.

This thing goes beyond the typical carne asada, and al pastor, as it includes suadero (beef brisket), tripas (tripe), chorizo, cabeza (beef cheek), lengua (beef tongue), pollo, buche (pork stomach), and cueritos (pork skin).

They call the mix of all those meats a “desmadre,” and it fills every square inch of this child-sized burrito.

Of course, the burrito is also filled with rice, beans and all the veggie fixings, but let’s be real, we’re here for the meat. And if you’re not valiant enough to try all those different meats, you can always be a square and customize it however you want.

Even though they call this the 10-Pound Burrito, there’s reason to believe they’re being modest, as even though they don’t have a scale, the heft of each piece is pretty sizable.

Tacos El Venado has been around since 2013, and while they’ve become a staple in the Los Angeles taco scene, this burrito is bound to make even more noise, and unfortunately make that wait in line a little longer.

This is one of those where you have to gather up the whole squad, at least 7 to 10 of you, depending how hungry you are, just to tear this beast apart.

If you’re up for the challenge, or think you know someone who’d be crazy enough to tackle this all on their own, good luck. If anything, it definitely makes for a ‘Gram-worthy post, whether you finish it or not.
