Salsa de Agricultor , 2001

August 27, 2010

Nuevo Leon is a province in northeastern Mexico, bordering on the American state of Texas. Nuevo Leon’s cuisine is known for its use of roasted goat, or cabrito, which is cooked over an open spic, and machaca, a beef dish where the beef is dried and salted and then cooked with a traditional sauce. This week’s recipe is a version of the sauce used in machaca, though the sauce can be used similarly to a traditional adobo sauce or marinade.
