Beef Salpicón is a traditional Honduran dish that is both delicious and very easy to make. Given that the recipe doesn’t require any additional fats or oils, the dish is low in fat — although not necessarily low in calories — compared to similar dishes containing meat.

Enjoy!

Directions

  1. Cut the meat in medium-size chunks.
  2. In a medium-size saucepot, place the meat and the rest of the ingredients with the exception of the finely chopped onion, tomato, bell pepper and lime juice.
  3. When meat is tender, place it on a cutting board. Let it cool down. Reserve the cooking liquid.
  4. In a food processor, process the meat by pulsing the processor in intervals and adding a little of the cooking liquid at a time. The texture should be chunky not pasty.
  5. Mix the meat with the rest of the ingredients. Serve warm or chilled.
