This is a very popular recipe in this area where the population is mostly of Portuguese decent. A gal I work with, who is from the Azores gave me this one.

Loved this recipe. I have made Portuguese Steak & Egg but I have used Fast Fry Steak. This really is fit for a king. The family was thrilled to have eaten this as our Sunday dinner. Delicious! Made for Eggs & Dairy Photo Forum Event.
