Carne Apache is difficult to describe because it is like Mexican-style steak tartare. Tartare is defined as is a meat dish made from finely chopped or minced raw beef. Carne Apache is also similar to ceviche because the beef is cooked by the acids of the lime juice. At first, I was not sure about eating this dish. I did try it and I must say, “I really like this recipe for Carne Apache, It is absolutely delicious!” If you try it I am positive that you will like it too. This recipe is a great to use as an appetizer dip or spread or ingredient for making a main dish like tacos or tostadas.
This Carne Apache recipe was shared with me by Marisela Reyna of Hillsboro, Oregon. When Marisela makes this recipe for her family, she increases the recipe and use 5 pounds of ground beef. Her children love this dish so much and would eat it every day if they could. When Marisela shared this dish with us, I wanted to eat the whole dish myself.
It would be prudent to include the food safety warning for this dish that states, “Consuming raw or undercooked meats, poultry, seafood, shellfish, or eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness”.
