Hilachas (shredded beef) is yet another staple of the Guatemalan Cuisine. Hilachas is basically a red curry with shredded beef and potatoes. The hilachas recado (the Guatemalan word for curry) is normally served with rice as shown in the picture. Hilachas can be often found as part of the daily menu special in many authentic Guatemalan comedores (diners) and restaurants; keep an eye for it, you won’t regret it.
The hilachas recipe will be posted in the upcoming Recipes from Guatemala web site which should be opening its doors in May. Stay tune for the grand inauguration news here in AntiguaDailyPhoto.
Two more days for the AntiguaDailyPhoto third anniversary celebrations.
