A classic Cartagena dish is black beef (posta negra) made from tri-tip sirloin. Cooks keep the fat on, which makes the meat burn and release flavor when cooked. They fry the meat until it is black and then add red onion, tomato, garlic, and fragrant pepper. This dish, along with coconut rice, is a symbol of Cartagena.
