Shredded Beef Burritos

We have a local restaurant named Fuzzy’s Taco Shop. I just had to try it out when I first heard about it since I have a Godfather and a Great Uncle we call Fuzzy and Fuzzy Jr.  This little place was rumored to have shredded beef burritos and to my surprise they did! I grew up on shredded beef burritos in LA and San Diego. Unfortunately once I moved to Texas all they had was the infamous “Tex-Mex” food of which I am not so fond of. So I was really glad to have a place that served “Cali-Mex” as we call it. After eating there a few times with the kids and my other half they fell in love the burritos as much as I did; I knew I just had to come up with a recipe at home. So I scoured the internet till I found a “old clothe” recipe and video which started the process. With a little effort and a decent amount of cooking time I can now make my own shredded beef burritos at home and for half the cost.

Shredded Beef Burritos


1 lb flank steak
1 whole garlic peeled not chopped
1 yellow onion cut in half not chopped
2 to 3 bay leaves
1 container beef broth or two cans


In large sauce pot add in beef, onion, garlic and bay leaves. Fill with water to cover meat then add in beef broth. Bring to a boil and the simmer at a low boil on medium heat for about an hour to an hour and half. Once meat pulls free from center then it is ready. Pull out beef and shred meat with fork. Do not cut with knife. If you have to cut with a knife then the meat is not ready. After your meat is shredded put back in the broth. This is just for added flavor. Serve on tortillas with toppings of your choice.
