    ratherbeswimmin''s Note:

    Three Guys from Miami; if you cannot get sour orange juice, a plausible substitution is—2 parts orange juice, 1 part lemon juice, 1 part lime juice. To make cracker meal—grind crackers in a food processor to a fine consistency.

    1. 1
      Mix olive oil, sour orange juice, vinegar, and chopped onion to make marinade.
    2. 2
      Add un-pounded steak, cover, and marinate for 20 minutes.
    3. 3
      Remove steaks from marinade and place them, one at a time, between two pieces of waxed paper.
    4. 4
      Using a meat mallot, pound steaks to ¼-inch thickness; return steaks to marinade; refrigerate/marinate for 1-4 hours; remove beef and save marinade.
    5. 5
      In a bowl, combine cracker meal, garlic powder, and salt.
    6. 6
      Dip wet beef in egg whites, then dip in cracker mixture, coating well on both sides.
    7. 7
      Saute in heated olive oil to desired doneness; remove from pan and place on plate.
    8. 8
      Use some of the reserved marinade (with the onions) to deglaze the pan: cook at high heat, stirring constantly until the onions are cooked and the sauce reduces somewhat.
    9. 9
      Pour sauce over the steaks and sprinkle with chopped cilantro and freshly ground pepper.
