Hola otra vez,

Time for the second part in my Spanish cuisine posts. Today we’ll be looking at Spanish words for meat. For some reason it took me ages to get my head around the names for the different types of meat, but hopefully you’ll pick it up a lot quicker than I did!


  • carne de res – beef
  • cordero – lamb
  • cerdo – pork
  • ternera – veal
  • cochinillo – suckling pig
  • costillas – ribs
  • chuleta – pork chop
  • lomo – steak/fillet
  • conejo – rabbit
  • ganso – goose
  • pato – duck
  • pavo – turkey

If you know of any more words  don’t forget to leave a comment and let me know.

Nos vemos pronto.
