Recipe

Last night I dreamed about being a cowboy, about long nights on the trail and campfires and ….smores. So maybe it was more like camping than cowboying, but I was riding a horse and dressed in the best of cowboy attire. Where did this cowboy dream come from ? I think the blame lies with this Machaca which I ate much too much of last night. You see, Machaca traditionally was a dish made by cowboys and ranchers involving dehydrated beef, some chilis, and eaten with whatever was handy. Sometimes it was rolled into flour tortillas, many times it was scrambled up with eggs, and sometimes it was fried into crispy little taquitos. This version skips the dehydrated beef but uses all the traditional flavors and can be eaten a thousand different ways. Make extra. You can always freeze it if you don’t finish it.

Directions

  1. Season the beef with salt and pepper and place into the slow cooker.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the lime juice, beef broth, and Maggi. Stir in the other ingredients and then pour over the beef.
  3. Cook on low in the slow cooker for 8 hours. Then shred the beef using two forks and serve. I usually like to let the shredded beef hang out in all the cooking liquid/sauce for about 30 minutes before serving. Just keep the slow cooker on low.
