Beef chuck is simmered with onion, cilantro and peppers to make a lively taco stuffing.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 2 quarts water
- 3 pounds beef chuck
- 1 small onion, quartered
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
- 1 cup green salsa
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 tablespoon chopped jalapeno pepper
In a stockpot, combine, water, beef and quartered onion. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium low, and simmer covered for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until meat is very tender. Strain and reserve broth. Shred meat with 2 forks; set aside.
Heat oil in a heavy skillet over medium high heat. Saute chopped onion and bell pepper until tender. Stir in 1 cup of the reserved broth, shredded beef, salsa, cilantro and jalapenos. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 to 5 minutes, or until heated through.
