This seems to be the Latin American word for beef - in Spain it's called carne de vaca

In Chile, beef is "vacuno" and cow "vaca".

I'd hate to eat beef in Chile because that makes me think of "vacuna" (shots) and I'd just picture my steak getting a needle stuck into it.

actually "carne" makes reference to the meat itself while "res" talks about the dead cow. So yeah, basically it means "beef"

Yesterday I ordered caldo de res in a mexican restaurant in San Antonio and it was basically a beef soup.
