  • 5. Cover the dough with a second piece of plastic wrap and press down with tortilla press.
  • 6. Turn the pressed dough on a diagonal and press again to help create a long oval shape. (Do not use flour to make the dough less sticky as that can make it crumbly).
  • Repeat process for each ball of dough.
  • 7. Lightly oil a hot griddle or hot frying pan if you do not have a griddle, and put the pressed tortilla on it.
  • 8. Flip the tortilla when it starts to slide around easily on the griddle or pan.

  • 3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • 4. Remove plastic wrap from beef and cover with foil. Bake for approximately 2-3 hours, or until meat is tender and falling apart.
