One of our favorite things about traveling is trying new foods and experimenting with new ingredients. We have tried many new foods in our year of cruising and enjoyed most of them. (Except pupusas; I'm sure we could go the rest of our lives and never miss pupusas.)
We are at a distinct disadvantage here in Bonaire because we understand absolutely no Dutch and the labels at the markets are in Dutch, but yesterday at Van den Tweel Supermarket we picked up some rundervinken. We didn't know exactly what it was, but it looked good and we figured we could Google it to see how to prepare it.
I discovered that rundervinken is sausage wrapped in beef and that a traditional presentation would be with an onion/pepper/tomato puree/sour cream sauce. Sounded easy enough, so here's my mise en place.
After a 15 minute saute, the meat sits and waits while the sauce comes together.
Here's the finished dish and if our speed inhaling it was any indication, it was delicious!
