To me, they sound like the same thing. Am I missing something?

    Originally Machaca beef was dried to preserve it, then pounded and shredded like deshebrada.  Carne deshebrada is slow cooked beef then shredded.  I don't think you'll find the real machaca beef in machaca anymore, mostly carne deshebrada, but could be wrong, its been a long time since I had either in the Southwest.

      I used to work with a guy from michoacan who used beef jerky in his beans, apparently it was the closest thing he could find to machaca.... i've never never had it myself.

        Using Jerky to flavor beans is interesting. I have friends in the premium Jerky business. I'll have to try that...with their Jerky.
