A delicacy in some cultures, not so much in ours. I was tricked into eating it by friends from Venezuela. Tastes good like beef should but not a grained meat texture at all. There was some kind of extra stripping (veins or gristle?) that took place in the kitchen that I didn’t know about, as they distracted me from seeing, LOL.
I would guess it’s not worth the hassle if you don’t already have a liking for it.
Was it tender? More like liver? I think it’s the texture (or the way I imagine it anyway) that I can’t get past!
Right up there with my Dad’s all-time favorite food: brain sandwiches. *hurk*
