Ceviche? No meat there. By definition it is seafood.


Escabeche or "escaviche" is a different thing. The beef is already cooked.

You can marinade beef in acid, ala ceviche, but it wont "cook" (change protein structure) thoroughly as does fish ... thus it really isn't ceviche.

Escabeche is sorta like Ropa Vieja, but more piquant.

Perhaps you mean Carpaccio of beef fillet? I've put a recipe for carpaccio in the beef forum of the site.

All this fuzz because of Ceviche...?
How about the ones who are not satisfied with the "technical" definition of it, because of chemical structure of the ingredients, or any other reason, simply call it ... "SALAD"!
I'll keep calling it Ceviche and we can all be happy
