Dear Family and Friends,
Last week Chuck and I bought some meat at the Feria Libre market. The meat that I cut into steaks I froze and we have not tried it yet. The roast (Chuck referred to it as a standing rib roast), I cooked last Friday. Although it was not melt in your mouth tender, it was not tough. We had a nice dinner off it. With what was left Chuck made a wonderful beef vegetable soup. The most important thing is that we did not get sick from eating it.
Our friends, Barbara and Howard, who took us to the market, reported that their meat that they cut into steaks was not very tender.
I am not daunted, I will go back to the market on another Wednesday morning and try again. I know you can get good tender meat there. I have heard too many people comment about the quality. I think next time we will leave at 6:00am and shop around more before settling on our meat.
Sorry I don't have a picture of the roast. By the time I thought of my camera the roast was already soup.
At the moment we are planning a trip to the coast. I'll share when and exactly where after we get the details ironed out.
