Salpicón de Res

Prep Time: 20 minutes | Cook Time: 45 minutes | Serves: 4-6 servings

  • Rumba® Beef Cheekmeat (2 lbs. )
  • ⅓ onion
  • 4-5 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1¾ tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 bunches cilantro, divided
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • For serving (optional): Black beans, rice and lime juice
  1. Cut cheekmeat into medium-sized pieces. Heat olive oil in large pot. Add one bunch chopped cilantro, onion and cheekmeat. Simmer for a few minutes; cover ingredients in water and continue cooking meat for about 20 to 30 minutes.
  2. Remove cheekmeat from pot (save beef broth for later use in soups or sauces, if desired). Process cheekmeat pieces until they reach shredded-like consistency. Transfer shredded beef to medium bowl.
  3. Chop onions and cilantro in food processor (separately); add to meat. Season with salt, pepper and lime juice. Serve with rice and beans, and additional lime wedges.
