Masquerading Meat and Potatoes

Matambre & Ensalada Rusa: two more recipes that I found in The South American Table

Matambre is supposably a well-known specialty in Argentina, also popular in Uruguay and Chile. You roll vegetables and sliced hard-boiled egg in a piece of marinated flank-steak before braising it in broth.

The book claims that "Russian" Salad is the potato salad of South America. This pink mound is composed of potatoes, carrots, beets, peas, and onion  dressed with mayonnaise, mustard, and cream.

It was okay, but I would be afraid to serve it to guests.  Joel’s comment was that it was a waste of eggs when you could have them scrambled and served in a good breakfast burrito…
