Ranchera Steak With Fried Egg - Bistec a Caballo

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Pesto lover

Braised beef with juicy gravy and fried egg on top. If you can't find Ranchera steaks, try a latin meat market. If you use another kind of steak, try a very thinly sliced chuck steak. You may have to cook it longer for it to be tender. Added later: I see that the Spanish name of this dish is raising a few eyebrows. I gave the Spanish name so that someone familiar with the dish can find it. It has nothing to do with horse, just as a hotdog has nothing to do with dog. Try it - you'll like it!

Bistec a Caballo translates as Beef Steak of Horse. Perhaps you should rename the dish.
