I remember family reunions when I was a girl; the jokes, the games but above all, the food.
We enjoyed the tacos of beef chamorro, accompanied by the broth that remains after cooking the meat, with a tuetano inside.
The tatemada sauce is usually spicy, but I make it not so spicy so my children can get used to the taste.
Rumba Meats meat is of high quality and is vacuum sealed. They offer specialized beef cuts, which we normally use in Mexican or Hispanic recipes, such as tongue, beef shank or ring bone, beef cheek meat, neck, etc.
