Notes

MAKE MACHACA WITH LEFTOVER SHREDDED BEEF:

Remember when we made these shredded beef brisket flautas? We were sure to double the recipe so that we can have plenty of brisket leftover to make this modern machaca recipe.

MAKE MACHACA WITH DRIED BEEF:

If you want to try the old fashioned version, try to find packaged carne seca (dried meat)

WHERE TO BUY DRIED MACHACA?

Dried beef is usually sold in Latin supermarkets or you can order it online.
