Carnes Desmenuzadas (Shredded Beef)

Carnes Desmenuzadas (Shredded Beef) created by Parsley

A recipe from Nicaragua that I found at http://recipes.wuzzle.org/. I have not tried it yet but it sounds interesting. It calls for sour orange juice which would be found in a bigger store where the exotic produce is or in the ethnic section in a bottle. The technique is a bit different in that you do not braise it long, and it has handy ingredients. Serve with tortillas and probably a spicy side dish or with a spicy topping.

    I m ade this for my family for dinner tonight. Everyone gave it between 3 and 4 stars. While it was good, they did say some of the meat was a little on the tough side and they felt it could use some seasoning to kick it up a knotch.

    I used carne picada cut beef for this, so I didn't need the full hour to cook it. This was good on flour tortillas with some shredded lettuce. I topped this with a little hot sauce. I think next time I would add a chopped chili pepper into this for a little extra kick..... maybe a little garlic, too. Thanx for posting this!
