Shredded Beef Nachos
This is perfect for the Super Bowl on Sunday but has to be prepared ahead of time so the meat can marinade before its cooked. I will be rooting for the Ravens for several reasons - I like purple and that is the color their uniform is. They are from Baltimore and my daughter goes to college in Baltimore. Ray Lewis is on the team and he gets a little crazy. Everyone likes to see crazy once in a while. And the best reason is that Michael Oher is on the team. The Michael Oher from the The Blind Side movie with Sandra Bullock. Look for # 74. So Go Ravens!
1/4 cup worcestershire sauce
juice of two limes
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2-3 lb chuck roast or skirt steak, trimmed and cut into lb portions
1 large yellow onion
1 jalapeno pepper, minced
1/2 green pepper diced
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1 14 oz can diced tomatoes
1/4 cup beef broth
1 tbsp dried oregano
vegetable oil for searing
Combine all ingredients in a bowl then whisk them together. Add the beef making sure every piece is evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate overnight if possible. If not possible a few hours will do. Before preparing meat drain all the liquid and get meat to room temperature for about 30 minutes.
In a large soup pot, heat a few tablespoons of the oil over medium high heat until very hot. Sear the beef so that the meat is browned on all sides.
Remove the beat from the pan and add onions, peppers and garlic to the hot pan. Saute for a few minutes and then add the remaining ingredients including the beef. Bring to a boil scraping the browned bits off of the bottom of the pan. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer slowly for about 2 hours. The meat should be tender and should easily fall apart when touched with a fork.
Remove from heat and move meat to a cutting board and shred beef with a pair of forks. Return to the pot and bring to a simmer. Reduce the liquid until it is almost dry. Add salt and pepper to your liking.
To assemble layer the tortilla chips. Spoon the shredded beef and minimal liquid over the chips. Sprinkle shredded cheese over meat and broil at 500 for 30 seconds to 1 minute to melt cheese. Watch it so nothing burns. Remove from oven and add toppings of your choice such as black olives, sliced avocado, chopped cherry tomatoes, sour cream, etc.
