 1 kilogram of bovine lizard (round piece)

 4 crushed garlic cloves

 1 medium grated onion

 1 teaspoon of black pepper

 ½ tablespoon of salt

 ½ cup dry white wine

 3 tablespoons of olive oil

 1 tablespoon of sugar

 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

 3 cups of boiling water (approximately)

 ½ yellow pepper

How to make vinaigrette sliced ​​lizard:

Separate the ingredients that will be used in the first step of the recipe (preparing the meat), to facilitate the process.

Just remove excess fat from the meat, keeping some of it to make the meat juicy. Then make small holes all over the surface of the piece and place it in a refractory with a mixture of crushed garlic, grated onion, salt, black pepper, Worcestershire sauce and white wine.

Tip: You can replace the seasoning with one of your own.

Place the lizard and marinade in a bag and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. During this time, turn the bag over from time to time so that the seasoning penetrates better into all the meat.

After that time, heat a medium pressure cooker and add the olive oil. Remove the meat from the marinade and reserve its seasoning in a container, as we will use it shortly. Seal all sides of meat for a few minutes.

Add the sugar and let the meat brown over a low heat, turning it on all sides to stay as shown in the photo.

Add the hot water (you don't need to cover the meat) and add the reserved marinade to the pan. Adjust the salt and pepper, if necessary, and close the pan, letting the meat cook for about 50 minutes to 1 hour, starting from the beginning of pressure.

While the meat is cooking, separate the ingredients to prepare the vinaigrette salad.

After sanitizing the vegetables, chop them into cubes of the same size.

Put the chopped and mixed salad in a bowl and season it with salt, lemon, olive oil and vinegar. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate the salad until ready to use.

When the meat is cooked, leave it in a refractory inside the oven turned off or in another closed place, so that it rests and cools completely before being sliced.

Tip: It is important to slice the meat when it is colder, so that you can cut the slices more easily, without the meat becoming crumbly. That's one of the reasons this recipe is called cold vinaigrette lizard.

After that time, slice the lizard piece with a saw knife and as thin as possible.

Start assembling the dish, interspersing the salad with the slices of meat until the ingredients are finished.

Tip: Refrigerator-Sliced ​​Lizard: Some people like to assemble the sliced ​​lizard inside a pot, layered with lizard and vinaigrette, to store in the refrigerator.

Ready! Your vinaigrette lizard is ready to be served as an appetizer or as a snack filling a sandwich, for example! We hope you enjoyed the recipe and have a good appetite!
