I will assume you mean the more tex-mex version.


Beef Machaca

In the wheat fields and cattle ranches of Sonora, Mexico, we can find culinary history that is a major influence in Tex-Mex cuisine today. In Sonora, wheat flour tortillas and traditional Machaca come together to make burritas. They are an everyday type of taco there.

Machaca in its traditional form is the Mexican equivalent of beef jerky. It is basically beef that has been marinated, cooked, shredded and dried. The drying process preserved the beef, made it easy to pack on the trail, and it also gave the machaca a unique texture when prepared in the traditional fashion. In Tex-Mex cuisine, an adapted version of the traditional machaca is a staple that can be served alone with tortillas and taco fixings.

I have seen them make it a small cafes and taco shops (Robertos,ect) I have always enjoyed it on a plate, with beans and rice to be pinched up with tortillas or in a burro w a fist full of cheese before rollin' it up. Thanks for posting it.

Possibly with these as a starter:

I did catering out of my house for a couple of years. I took some cooking and baking classes and watched a lot of cooking shows on TV. Not to mention all the books I bought.
I did not like prostituting my art for money. So I decided writing a cookbook would be better.
Well I have pics and I have recipes but no pics of recipes or recipes of pics:eek:
But the new plan is either YouTube or live stream cooking show.

Grilled Pork Chop, Spinach, Sweet Potatoes

You forgot the Kartoffelpüree. :eek:

We call this smoked pork "Kassler", and traditionally we eat it with Sauerkraut and Kartoffelpüree.

Not smoked just slow roasted in the oven. And canned sauerkraut smuggled into Mexico from the US.:eek:
Maybe this would be more to your liking

My wife is Japanese so we frequently eat Japanese food. Besides that, I love it all.
Korean, Thai, Vietnamese, Persian, Mexican, Italian, Greek. Every country has something fantastic to offer.
Moving to California all those years ago truly was eye opening from a gastronomic standpoint.
