Machaca Ranch Steak Tacos

Now and then, I like to surprise a group of friends by inviting them over for dinner. Sometimes they return the invite. Being an employee of Celebrity Foods, some friends think I have an advantage. But my recipes are pretty simple. It’s just the food that’s always guaranteed to be great. Last week, I spiced up Taco Night with Machaca Ranch Steak Tacos.

“Machaca” is a Spanish word meaning shredded.

Servings per recipe – 4

Makes: 12 tacos


1 ½ lb Boneless Ranch Steak

16 oz jar of salsa

12 corn tortillas

½ cup oil or non-stick spray

shredded lettuce

shredded cheese

diced tomatoes

diced onions

Cooking Instructions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place frozen Celebrity Foods Ranch Steak in a roasting pan, season with garlic salt, and pour a ½ jar of salsa on top. Cover with lid or foil and bake for 2 ½ hours or until meat is fork tender. Remove from oven and let cool for ½ hour with lid on. With two forks, shred and de-fat meat. Allow the juice to soak back into the steak. While the steak is cooling, start dressing the tortillas with the oil.


Heat oil in a small pan until hot. Place a tortilla in oil, turning once. Each side should take 7 to 10 seconds. Place on a paper towel to soak up access oil. OR, spray the tortilla and then the hot pan with the non-stick spray and place sprayed side down and spray the other side. Turn the tortilla to cook the other side. Place on a paper towel.

Once the steak has cooled, fill each tortilla with the steak filling and fold each in half. Top with lettuce, cheese, diced tomatoes, and/or onions, whatever your favorite combo of tasty toppers may be.

If you have a special dish you like to share with friends sometimes that’s easy to make, do share!  All ideas for dinner parties are welcome. And maybe we could plan a dinner party together one day!
