    jc12972's Note:

    This is my version of Bistec Empanizado. Similar to the Cuban versoin of Bistec Empanizado, except I don't use an egg wash or the cracker crumb crust. Mine is seasoned to perfection and lightly breaded in flour. It's soooooo good!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Note: I usually buy a prepackaged steak called "cube steak" for this dish. It's basically round steak that has been extra tenderized. If they don't have it in your grocery store, you can buy regular round steaks then pound it yourself with the pointy/spiky side of a mallet.
    2. 2
      To clean the steaks: In a large bowl combine steak, vinegar and enough water to cover the steaks. Let soak for a few minutes then rinse well and pat dry. Note: This step is optional it's simply how I clean my meat.
    3. 3
      Marinade the steaks:.
    4. 4
      In a ziploc bag or large bowl combine the lime juice, 1 tbs. adobo, 1 teaspoons oregano, black pepper to taste, garlic and worcestershire sauce. Add the tenderized steaks making sure all of the steaks are coated in the marinade. Marinade in the fridge for at least and hour (the longer the better). Remove from fridge 10 minutes before cooking.
    5. 5
      In a bowl mix together the flour, 1 teaspoons adobo, 1 teaspoons oregano and black pepper.
    6. 6
      Dip each steak in the flour mixture, coating both sides of the steak. Transfer to a plate.
    7. 7
      Heat a large skillet over medium/high heat. Add enough canola oil to completely cover the surface of the pan. Sprinkle the sugar around the oil.
    8. 8
      Once the sugar starts to turn brown, add the steaks (about 3 pieces at a time). Cook for about 2 minutes on the first side, flip and cook for about 1 minute on the second side.
    9. 9
      Transfer to a paper towel lined plate to drain the excess oil.
