“From Robb Walsh's Texas Cowboy Cookbook. Cook until roast is falling apart and wrap in flour tortillas with your favorite toppings.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Season the roast with salt and pepper. Pierce the meat with a knife in several places; insert garlic slivers.
  2. Heat the oil in a large braising pan over high heat. Brown roast 3 minutes on each side; add onions. Cook until onions are tender, about 5 minutes. Add the broth, tomato sauce, oregano, and cumin. Reduce heat to low.
  3. Add the chiles; let simmer 10 minutes or until soft. Remove chiles and 1 cup of braising liquid; transfer to a blender. Purée chiles and return to pot. Cover and simmer 3 to 4 hours, until meat falls completely from bone and shreds easily with a fork.
  4. Transfer meat to a cutting board. Remove gristle and bones. Shred meat; place meat on a serving plate. Pour braising liquid into a gravy boat or small bowl. Serve with warm tortillas.
