    we’re huge fans of Colombian food in general, but haven’t seen this on any Colombian menus. It sounds amazingly delicious! Are the worcestershire sauce and coca-cola traditional or are there substitutes that are used in Colombia?

      Jonny- They are traditional for this dish, but some people omit the salsa negra or worcestershire sauce. In Colombia we have a variation of dishes cook in Coca-Cola.

    Erica:

    El corte de carne “beef eye round roast” corresponde a lo que en Colombia conocemos como “muchacho” ?

    Cordial saludo,
