“This is roasted shredded beef served with rice. In Madagascar, it might very well be Zebu. If you shop for meat in Madagascar it is important to look for the shop that has the animal head hanging in front. That indicates the animal was butchered today. This is a very important concept in a country that has little refrigeration!!!!”
