My classmate, Barbara, told me about a trip she made to Feria Libre market to buy meat. She said the lomo fino was very nice. She cut it up into steaks and it was tasty and tender.
Monday Chuck and I ran into Howard, Barbara's husband, at the Kookaburra cafe. I asked if he would be willing to show us where he and Barbara buy their meat at the market.
He said "Sure, I'll be glad to. We need to leave for the market at 6:30am on Wednesday morning."
It is necessary to leave early because all the best pieces of meat are sold out early.
So this morning at 6:30am we met Howard and Barbara in front of our apartment and walked to the market.
Here is where we bought our meat.
And.... here is the meat we bought.
They cut the meat different here than in the U.S. So I really can't say what we bought. I cut the meat on the left into steaks and froze them. The meat (roast) on the right will be cooked tomorrow.
I'll let you know how it came out after we have eaten it.
FYI - The reason I wanted to try the meat from the market is because it is grass fed beef and contains no hormones. If this meat turns out to be tender and tasty I will always buy our meat at the market instead of at the SuperMaxi.
P.S. I bought some more turnip greens too.
