SHREDDED BEEF ENCHILADAS
My husband says these enchiladas are as good as the ones we had at our favorite Tex-Mex restaurant.
If your flour tortillas are too big to fit perfectly in your baking dish, fold them in half and cut them, in a circular pattern, to fit.
1 T avocado or your favorite oil
1 to 1½ lb top round steak
1 T Southwest or Mexican seasoning
1 t garlic powder
1 t onion powder
1 cup beef broth or stock
1(10 oz) can red enchilada sauce
1 package of 8 flour tortillas
1½ cups sharp shredded cheese
1½ cups Mexican-style shredded cheese
2 scallions, finely sliced, for garnish
Cilantro, finely chopped, for garnish
Sour cream, for serving
Lime wedges, if desired
Black beans with a topping of pumpkin seeds, if desired
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
Add oil to a large cast iron skillet.
Brown meat over medium heat on both sides.
Sprinkle with SW or Mex seasoning, garlic powder, and onion powder.
Flip meat over and pour in the beef broth and can of enchilada sauce.
Cover with a lid and place in center of oven and bake for 3 hours.
Remove from oven and with tongs or a large spatula, transfer meat to a large plate.
When cool enough to handle, shred meat, discarding fat.
While meat is cooling, bring sauce in skillet to a simmer. Let simmer for 10 minutes.
Pour shredded cheeses into a large bowl and mix to combine.
Raise oven temperature to 350 degrees F.
Add a couple of ladles of sauce to a baking dish.
Add some of the shredded beef to the tortilla and top with some of the cheese.
Roll up tightly and place in the baking dish, seem side down.
Continue to all have been place in baking dish.
Add a few ladles of the enchilada sauce from the skillet and top with the rest of the cheese.
Loosely cover with aluminum foil that has been sprayed with cooking oil.
Bake for 20 minutes.
Remove foil and bake another 15 to 20 minutes, until cheese is blubbling and slightly golden brown.
Let rest 10 minutes before serving.
