SPAM baby, That's the way to go, it don't fall apart, it goes well with any
wine and looks good next to the roses.

Default Shredded Beef Taco Meat? Or Burrito Meat?

I made beef stew, but bought too much beef, so did not cook about two
pounds. It's really nice, lean beef cut in smallish cubes, just a bit of
fat.

I like braised "fall apart" beef, but have been doing too much savory stuff,
so I was thinking ... spicy and rolled in a flour tortilla with good stuff
like shredded cheddar, tomatoes, sour cream, maybe a little fresh guacamole.

Anyone have a favorite recipe, where the spices really saturate the meat?

%% Anyone have a favorite recipe, where the spices really saturate the
meat?

Add half a can of Herdez salsa ranchera with some Mexican oregano and
some epazote. Use a half can of beer as the cooking liquid.

Cook until it is falling apart. Works with pork, too.

Or cook with home made salsa verde made with serranos & tomatillos.

I am trying this today! I have never seen poblano peppers, but am sending
the
manslave out for them after work! Thank you.

Sounds delish, I will try this next time. We don't keep beer around, OH
NO, guess I will have to get some! I like the ambers and darks, would
that work? And what IS epazote?

Chop up some potatoes - about the same volume as the meat - into big,
but still bite sized, pieces. Put the mean and potatoes in your
crockpot. Cover with green salsa and cook for many many hours.

rolls up great in a tortilla with shredded cheese.

We throw about 3 lbs of cubed meat in the crock pot with a jar of
Williams-Sonoma roja sauce and let it cook on low until you can pull
the meat apart (about 6 hours in an All-Clad slow cooker). You could
surely do the same with a spicier favorite salsa. :-)

oops - should have added that I think the roja sauce is in a 12 oz jar.
So for 2 lbs of meat, about 8 oz of salsa should do it.

This made my mouth water. I have a generic brand salsa I like,
certainly not as fancy as Williams Sonoma, but it might do the job!

This page is quite informative about epazote. I use it with black
beans, where I think it adds something flavorful. I have used it with
pinto beans but didn't think it went as well with them. -aem

What a cool site. I love black beans. It has been too long since I made
a big deadly looking pot of them, cooked down to a thick, spicy mess.
Do you think epazote really reduces gas? (I find the more beany stuff
I eat, the less problem I have that way.) Does it really taste like
kerosene??

Epazote only smells like kerosene in large quantities. I only put in a
couple of leaves (dried) into a pot of frijoles or a batch of pozole.

I made pozole last night with dried pozole from New Mexico. I used a
little over a pound of boneless pork ribs (sometimes with a big batch,
I'll put in a pig foot). Used Mexican oregano, thyme, epazote, chile
caribe & some chimayo dulce that was ground. Had limon, chopped
radishes, onions, & cilantro for garnish.

Good stuff.

Sounds like you are worlds ahead of me with authentic Mexican
cooking. I'm still doing TexMex stuff, but I am interested in
learning more about the real thing. Thanks.

Wow! Gorgeous presentation! It was so late when my husband got home,
I will make mine tonight, but I am sure it will not be so pretty. Thanks.

Here's the cookbook I used..
THE BORDER COOKBOOK: AUTHENTIC HOME COOKING of the American SW & N.
Mexico by Cheryl Alters Jamison

There's lots of good stuff in this one. Like marranitos. Mexican
gingerbread cookies cut in the shape of a pig.

: I'm a big fan of pozole! Is the Chimayo pepper similar to the Hatch
: variety? Sounds great..gonna make some soon.


"boneless pork ribs"? Now there's an oxymoron!!! By definition ribs
have bone.

Chimayo chiles are shorter, thinner fleshed, and usually a bit hotter than the
usual Hatch varieties (Big Jim, NuMex, etc.). Note that there is not
a "Hatch" variety, rather, Hatch is a growing region where several chile
varieties are grown.

Can you post the recipe for this dish? Or does it have a name I can
look up? Looks great!
