Beef Shank Sauce Over Polenta Recipe This beef sauce is so appetizing, you’ll have to resist eating it straight from the pot. Serve over polenta or pasta with some crusty bread for sopping up every last drop.
Vaca Frita: Crispy Beef Recipe This recipe for vaca frita ("fried cow") is a close cousin of Cuba's famous ropa vieja, stewed shredded beef in tomato sauce. The beef for vaca frita, however, is marinated in lime, garlic and salt, then seared until crispy. The key to achieving the perfect texture is to cook the beef in small batches, so it sautés rather than steams.
