Some time ago I bought a package of meat labeled 'Carne Picada' from Wal-Mart. The meat was something like a cross between ground beef and beef steak cut in strips. It's absolutely fantastic cooked in a skillet with sliced onins until the meat is just slightly pink then topped with shredded cheese. Rod eats his between slices of bread and I just pile it on a plate and eat it with a fork. It reminds me of the steak used in a Philly sandwich or omelet.
Anyway, we picked some of that up at Wal-Mart a couple of days ago and I'll more than likely use it this weekend.
But I wonder... what the heck does 'Carne Picada' mean? A google search turns up many references to it and several that claim it means 'minced meat' but this meat isn't minced. It isn't quite ground, either. It's more like shredded.
So, do any of you know what Carne Picada means and do you know the meat I'm talking about?
Also, if you have other ideas on how to use it, I'd love to know them!
