No cooking? Just using the lime juice to cook the meat like a ceviche? 

I'm going to assume you should use the leanest meat possible in this recipe..

Wonder about smoked onion and cheese in stead of the liquid?
I didnt want to subject the GB to any cold smoke, to much surface area to get bacteria beings it has no cure.

This is huge where I grew up (Castroville, Medina County Texas). Let me start off by saying I never, I repeat never use to eat this. The thought of eating raw meat made me sick until I was having a few beers one evening with my dad and he insisted on me trying it.... I've been hooked ever since!

This is the recipe I grew up with:

Castroville Parisa Recipe
* 2# lean ground sirloin
* 2# diced American cheese
* 2 medium sized onion
* Salt to taste
* 2-3 jalapenos seeded and diced
* Course ground pepper to taste
* 1 tbsp lemon juice

Mix well and serve with crackers
