Lime Teriyaki Carne Deshilachada y Arroz Recipe


Latin Cookin’ with an Asian Kikk!
Kikkoman sauces that is!

Well, as many of you know, Hubby and I absolutely love cooking and when thinking of a perfect marriage of a traditional Salvadorian dish that I grew up with, along with the flavors of the East–I thought BEEF!

It kind of made me chuckle because, well, Hubby is Asian and I am Salvadorian and we go together perfectly!

Anyway, I decided to make one of my favorite dishes my Mami used to make (and one that I occasionally sneak over for till this day), Carne Deshilachada con arroz y enselada fresca! That’s Shredded Beef with Spanish Rice and Garden Salad.

But, to give it an Asian flair, I used Kikkoman sauces and transformed it into Lime Teriyaki Carne Deshilachada con arroz y ensalada. The delicious Kikkoman Ponzu Lime Sauce and the Kikkoman Teriyaki Sauce. If you are unfamiliar with Kikkoman, you are totally missing out, they have quite a few sauces and marinades and chances are, you have definitely used their soy sauce!

You can check out Kikkoman to see all their products and to check out other delicious recipes you can make with their yummy sauces, here.



Things You Will Need:

  • Beef Chuck Roast or Beef Shoulder
  • Beef Broth
  • Your Favorite Dry Rub Marinade
  • Spanish Rice
  • Fresh Veggies for Garden Salad
  • 1/3 of Kikkoman Ponzu Lime Sauce
  • 1 bottle of  Kikkoman Teriyaki Sauce
  • Bay Leaves (Optional)
  • Pot for Boiling, Pan for Frying or Slow Cooker (Your Choice)


My Dry Rub:
You Will Need:
  • Spanish Paprika
  • Chipotle
  • Thyme
  • Sea Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder


Rub It Down!

Take your favorite dry rub and give your beef a little love, make sure you spread the rub thoroughly and massage into the meat. Make sure that every little inch is covered, don’t forget the bottom, sides–all around! Top your chuck roast with bay leaves for extra flavor and grab that Kikkoman Ponzu Sauce!


Grab That Kikkoman Ponzu Lime!

This is where you can decide how you want to cook your beef. There’s quite a few choices that will result in the same delicious outcome! You can either use a pot where you can boil the beef chuck roast in either water or beef broth, this makes for shorter cooking time.

Or you can use a pan to fry it, though I find this way makes the meat less tender than the latter. But, if you are in no rush, you can use a slow cooker for mouth watering results! But, to keep it under 60 minute cook-time, I suggest you boil it!


Let It Sink In!

I poured about 1/3 of the Kikkoman Ponzu Lime Sauce bottle and poured it all over the chuck roast. I let it sit for about 5 minutes so it can soak up the flavor of the sauce. It really gets the juices going. After letting it sink in, I added pre-made beef broth to my cooker and let it simmer to perfection.

If you are boiling it, you do the exact same thing. Dry rub, add Kikkoman Ponzu Lime Sauce, soak and then add broth or water and simmer to perfection! In between boiling, you can cut the chuck roast in large pieces for faster cooking.

Once the beef chuck roast is cooked to your preference, remove beef with a pair of tongs from the broth. Use two forks and begin to shred and separate beef. It should be super tender and break apart easily.

Remove about 3 parts of the broth and set aside, leave the remaining broth and add your shredded beef to it. Use tongs to mix it until the broth is completely covering the beef. Add the entire bottle of Kikkoman Teriyaki Sauce–mix well and you’re done!


Enjoy and Serve!

The result is sweet and tangy shredded beef!

I served it with my favorite Latin side dishes, like our staple rice and salad. Este es un plato que todos en mi familia puede disfrutar. Ya que tenemos tanto de Asia y América en la sangre, que es perfecto para nuestro hogar!


Change It Up!

It turned out super delicious and it got gobbled up, I even brought some over for my dad. It’s one of his most favorite latin dishes that his mom used to make for him too and I knew I had to have him try it because he would be honest!

And he loved it!

He said it’s perfectly sweet, tangy and salty! Different yet deliciously satisfying and if I say so myself, it’s pretty darn good!
