Living in South Florida for several years, this was a favorite of mine when we'd go out to a Cuban restaurant. It's good with black beans & rice & fried plantains.

I love this recipe. Make a recipe from the memories of being at Jackies with Barb. Good times, out of this world food. Especially this and the most divine salad to every cross my lips.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pound the steaks on both sides, using a mallet, until 1/4-inch thin. Season with garlic, lime juice, salt & pepper. Allow to marinate at least 1 hour, refrigerated.
  2. Remove the steaks from marinade & pat dry. In a large frying pan, heat the oil over medium heat until very hot. Brown each steak for 2 to 3 minutes on each side.
  3. Transfer the steaks to a serving platter & keep warm. Add the marinade & onion to the pan & cook until the onion is slightly wilted, 3 to 4 minutes. Garnish the steaks with the onion & parsley & serve immediately.
