I am not sure how the Uruguayan people would take me calling this lunch meat, but that is what it resembles to me.
Joe did a great deal of research before we moved here, we saw videos, had slide-shows and generally discussed Uruguayan customs, foods, housing, language, futbal and of course its people.
One major discussion item was food. I love to cook, I love to bake and we both love to eat, so many of our after dinner slide-shows included food.
Matambre is a rolled stuffed beef dish made here in Uruguay as well as Argentina. We have seen it for sale in the local supermarket and decided to try it.
The bread is Pan de Campo or country bread. It was a huge round loaf and this sandwich is only half a slice of bread. I am not sure what the Uruguayans would use on the sandwich but I added leaf lettuce and mayo. It went over very well. I would buy it again. Yum!
