Spicy Shredded Beef
Reviews:
April 27, 2005

this recipe has been such a joy! i have a lot to say... 1. it is not that spicy even tho it's called "spicy shredded beef" so if you want spicy add hot sauce 2. definately don't over use the cumin...the called for amount is plenty. 3. i added 1/3 cup of sugar when i added the tomato sauce. this gave a hint of sweetness to the meat that was just divine 4. do be sure to add water as it cooks so it never gets dry. 5. cook for at least 2 hours...the longer the better and make sure you have a very tight fitting lid to keep moisture in i use this beef for so many things but a favorite in our home is the mexican dish machaca con huevo first i heat up a few tbsp of veg. oil then add sliced onion. cook this for a few minutes then add the shredded beef. simmer for 10 minutes. then add scrambled egg (the ratio of egg to beef is up to you but usually 1 egg per serving of beef is good) cook the scrambled egg with the beef for at least 10 minutes until the egg is fully cooked. serve with warm corn tortillas. this is to die for delicious! i highly recommend this recipe for so many things (tacos/enchiladas/machaca/burritos) it's just divine and so so simple
