Grove tips: We first made this 9/22/03...very good. We used a flank steak and found that liquid needed to be added near the end of boiling the meat (maybe a can of beer or cup of beef broth). We also used a smaller baking dish.
8/19/09: Works perfectly in a cast iron dutch oven. Cooked it at 300f on the Big Green Egg (grill/smoker/oven) for about 90 minutes. As the past times, ended up adding a whole can of beer to keep the moisture up enough to continue braising. Added a chunk of cheese to the inside of each enchilada. Found this worked better in a shallow baking dish instead of a casserole dish, so the enchiladas aren''t as soggy. It''s a preference thing.
