How to Make Machacha

  • 2In a seperate pan cut your roast up in large chunks and sear really well adding each peice to the liquid.
  • 3Bring the meat to a slow boil..allowing to boil 2-3 hours depending on the cut of meat. You want your meat to be tender and falling apart. When it is falling apart turn the fire off and allow meat to soak while it cools. During the cooking time stir from the bottom and add water or wine because the liquid will reduce alot.
