What is Timbal de Res?


Looking at a menu, "jugosas esalopas de res con jitomate al orégano, queso manchego y salsa pimienta. Acompañado de papas y verduras cocidas." Could it be a meatloaf?

I don't think it's a meatloaf, although I can't tell you exactly what it is... I don't know if there is an equivalent in English.

To my knowledge, a "timbal" is a "mound" or a little "mountain" of something - such as a "timbal de arroz".

You are correct that "res" is beef. This sounds like it's scalloped beef served with potatoes and veggies. It really sounds good, and I am getting hungry!

If it were a meatloaf, the recipe would call for "carne molida" or "carne picada", wouldn't you think?

Res is venison or deer I believe - so you have here some juicy venison scallops with tomato, oregano, manchego cheese and pepper sauce with a side of fries and cooked veggies - Mmmm..
