    threeovens's Note:

    This is marinated skirt steak that is cooked in sauce. In Colombia this is eaten by many families every week (my husband had it every Wednesday). Serve it with white rice and beans, avocado, and an arepa or corn cake. The recipe makes more hogao than is needed. Just drop the leftovers into your beans!

    5. 5
      Reduce heat to low and add in salt and pepper to taste and cilantro, cook until tomatoes break down, about 10 minutes more; remove from heat.
    6. 6
