Ingredients

One 1 1/2-pound flank steak, pounded thin

2 teaspoons dried oregano

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

4 cups chicken stock

2 Idaho potatoes, diced

1 small jar jalapenos

1 large onion, chopped

1 can whole chopped tomatoes

Flour tortillas, for serving

Directions

  1. Preheat the broiler.
  2. Sprinkle the steak with the oregano, salt and pepper and place on a baking sheet. Broil the steak until well done, about 6 minutes per side. Remove from the oven and let cool before slicing. Slice or shred the steak into thin pieces and set aside.
  3. In a large pot, combine the chicken stock, potatoes, jalapenos, onions and tomatoes, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat and add the shredded steak. Simmer the mixture for 2 hours until thickened.
  4. Serve the Manchaca with warm flour tortillas to wrap.
