How to Eat Steak in Pereira

Beef is quite common in Colombia. It is part of the basic diet. What isn’t common however is a more American or European preparation style which involves aging the meat and certain cuts which your local butcher may or may not be familiar with.

La Era Carne a La Piedra

La Era – Just as it is written, it is about “the era,” or the time going back to cave men who figured out how to kill meat and cook it on a grill with hot rocks. 

Carne a la Piedra – Refers to a hot volcanic rock which is heated up to 300 – 400 degrees celsius. Meat is then served on these hot rocks so it can retain it’s heat AND you can grill it to the desired finish you want. 

Volcanic Rock Steak

When meat is grilled on a hot volcanic rock it preserves the taste and quality by eliminating contaminants from teflon, iron, aluminum and traditional cook tops. The rocks are cleaned only with vinegar which removes the grease but leaves no taste behind only the natural flavor and quality of the meat. 

Beyond the cleanliness, this is an experience that is fun and highly recommended for the whole family or a night out with someone special.

About Bibiana Rodriguez

The master chef of La Era Carne a la Piedra is Bibiana Rodriguez. Her experience as a traveler and student of cuisine is what brings the excellence and quality of La Era. She spent 16 years in Europe learning how beef is prepared. At one point she learned some of her preparation styles from an Argentinian chef. Overall she spent two years in Germany and the rest in Spain learning about their gastronomy and preparation styles. 

It’s important to note, that all her studies taught her about the different cuts and maturation for Argentinian and European cuts.  Later, a trip to Switzerland brought a whole new element to her kitchen techniques and captivated her imagination. It was during this brief visit that she discovered the volcanic rock grilling and it’s benefits in eliminating contaminants while preserving the flavor of the meat.

She realized upon her return to Colombia that people were going to nice restaurants but weren’t getting their meat exactly as they wanted. Pereira is very much a red meat eating city.

It was then and there that she decided to recreate the volcanic rock grilling experience in Colombia by teaching people How to Eat Great Steak in Pereira (Dosquebradas) in a pure and contaminant free way which allowed them to enjoy the flavor of quality meat.
