Wow!! This pork is very delicious. I only had a 2lb pork roast so I just halved my ingredients. I didn't have diced tomatoes so I used tomato sauce and it came out soo good. I used the meat for burritos. Thank you so much for posting this recipe.
I've had beef machaca with scrambled eggs for brunch in a Mexican restaurant, and that was delicious!
I made this several times last summer in the crock pot! So wonderful! Great way to prepare an inexpensive cut of pork. We shredded it and made burritos with canned black beans, homemade corn relish and some sour cream! Thanks for the recipee!
Made this in a crock pot primarily to freeze for future use, but did keep enough to make a couple of enchiladas! Used just 2 jalapenoes, but that was about right for my taste! Very, very moist & flavorful! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's PAC]
This machaca was outstanding, tender, full of flavor and easy to prepare for the crockpot. I used a 3 pound pork butt roast. I trimmed as much fat as was reasonable. I used the tomato paste and used only 2 jalapenos which I diced rather than leave whole. I also failed to reduce the volume of water since I was using the crockpot but will use the broth to make a mexican-syle pozole soup. I cooked the pork for 5 hours in the crockpot which was plenty of time and meat did not dry out. The pork shredded very easily, and I added some of the broth to the meat for flavor and to maintain moistness. This was so good. Some of us served it up as tacos and others as burritos. Condiments on the table included chopped lettuce, tomatoes, onions, cilantro, sour cream and pico de gallo. Leftovers are going to make fantasic enchiladas. Thanks Chef TotalFark for sharing this awesome recipe that will make an encore in my home many times.
I made this with pork loin chops in the pressure cooker. I cooked it for 15 minuets then natural release. I made the most delicious enchilladas with the meat. Just what I was craving and looking for.
Love this! I've made with beef, chicken and pork - its always a hit!!
Great pork. Served with Mexican cornbread, baked beans and coleslaw. YUM.
I served this at a football party with burrito fixings and got rave reviews! The pork was so tender it shredded like a dream. Will definitely be making this again. Thanks for sharing!
