Where's the BEEF?

cynthonline | May 6, 2008 05:09 AM

Can someone please explain to me why it is so impossible to find beef in Spain (or is it just the Barcelona area?). I do not like veal (which is ternera, or vedella depending on spanish or catalan) and it is all we can find. On menus, in the supermarkets, at the butchers. We finally found one place that has beef (carne de vaca), an argentinian delicatessen but that is in the heart of the city and we live north of the city on the coast. Corte Ingles has what I thought was beef (says vacano) but I just looked again and it says ternera. Help!!!
