    Credit for this masterpiece recipe goes to my sister, Judy, the best cook I know. I can't imagine this machaca recipe being beaten by any other, at least any other I've tried which are many.

      I've been eating machaca for years at different restaurants in Mexico and in CA. This is very close to what I have eaten previously and very good. It needed a little bit more "spice" though. Also, it's super important to use a true non-stick pan or it will make cleanup really difficult. Thanks for sharing!

      Made for ZWT3 - this was really good, but next time, we would cook the roast with the salt, pepper and garlic in with it to season the meat a little more. VERY good though!
