I am reviewer number 14 and I cannot believe that almost all the previous 13 changed the recipe in some way and THEN reviewed it. Please review on the written recipe, not your changes..... Not your traditional machaca by any means, but the flavor was soo good none the less. Will make again. Thanks Tucson Mom for a recipe to add to the crockpot file.
Instead of throwing out all that liquid and paying for enchilada sauce you can use 3 cups of liquid and your own spices; salt, pepper, garlic, cumin and chili powder of your choice plus some diced onion and bell pepper add only a little more effort.
I agree with RBcook. Instead of adding water to the juices I used 3 8 oz cans of mexican tomato sauce, 4 chopped fresh jalapenos with seeds and 1 bunch fresh cilanto.
This is very good and easy. After the first cooking you get rid of all the fat so it's very lean in the end, unlike many shredded meat recipes. It's not very spicy and next time I think I will add 1-2 packages of taco seasoning with the enchilada sauce.
Instead of the enchilada sauce, I added a can of tomatoes and green chilies and a small can of green chilies, plus a small diced onion. Very good and tender
You have to try this! I suggest adding the onions, garlic and cumin like the other reviews say. We didn't get to add cilantro but will for sure next time. I can't wait to make this for my hispanic inlaws! Talk about brownie points. HeHe
Wow this is nothing like authentic machaca. I would strongly advise finding a different recipe. My inlaws ( born and raised) from Mexico didn't understand what it was I had made and my husband's Gma (just visiting) was not pleased... I received an embarrassing lesson on how its supposed to be made.
Drain off any fat and add the cooking liquid back to the shredded meat. Then continue cooking until the juices are reduced…(very thick).
