Pincho of the Week: Entrecot de toro

Entrecot pincho

I first mentioned one of my new favorite pincho back in March when Logroño was named the 2012 Gastronomic Capital of Spain. They held a Semana del Pincho (Pincho Week) where all the bars in Logroño highlighted the best they had to offer, and it was when I first really started to check out calle San Juan, Logroño’s second famous pincho street, and Bar la Cueva’s tasty steak, entrecot pincho. I know this is my second beef pincho in a row, but 2 weeks ago I did a cleanse, and since then I have been craving nothing but meat, meat and more MEAT! After a week of nothing but veggies and fruit, all I want now is steak and beef! So ladylike!

Bar la Cueva has a lot of pinchos to chose from, but their new specialty is a keeper. A tender beef sirloin with caramelized onions and zucchini in a red wine reduction (Entrecot de toro de lidia con cebolla, calabacín y reducción de vino tinto), it will literally knock your socks off and have you begging for more. And for 3 euros a plate, it’s unbelievably cheap! All of the flavors come together in a perfect combination of savory sweet that will make you want to lick the plate before ordering seconds.
