This is an inexpensive cut of beef shoulder that my butcher gave me to try. I loved the price – a mere $2.95.
I took it home and marinated it in olive oil, soy sauce, lime juice and garlic. I then cooked it on the grill and made beef tacos. This had really great flavor and was a very inexpensive meal.
To go with it, here is a different Guacamole recipe that actress Amy Adams (Julie & Julia) loves. I make it slightly on the chunky side and I like the texture of the tomatillo in it. She also suggested adding a shot of tequila to add a little zip. Me, I’m in favor of adding a shot of tequila to almost anything.
Amy Adams Guacamole

1 tomatillo, husked, chopped
1/2 tomato, chopped into 1/4 inch cubes
Handful of cilantro

Salt & Pepper to taste
Mash avocados in a bowl for a fork, stir in remaining ingredients. Serve with chips.
