This is one of those recipes that you will wonder why you didn't try it sooner. Men especially go wild over this bacon, and this bacon will be a huge hit with them! Excellent to serve for a brunch or special occasion breakfast. This candied bacon also makes a very interesting and delicious appetizer that is sure to please your guests!
It is hard to describe this recipe, as it is a little like Mexican-style steak tartare because of the raw beef, but also like ceviche because the raw beef is cooked by the acids of the lime juice. I was apprehensive at eating this dish at first, but it is absolutely delicious! I really like this recipe for Carne Apache. When Marisela shared it with us, I wanted to eat the whole dish of it.
