To "dar vueltas," means to "flip" or "go around in circles" which is why these steaks are named so! A quick flip in the pan and they're done! These make great sandwiches, or are good alone served with crusty french bread to soak up the sauce. Garlic mayo really compliments the meat too. They can be made with beef, pork or chicken, as long as the cut of meat is very thin. They get better with time, too, so if you want, you could make them a day ahead and just heat them up when you're ready.
- 3 lbs top round steaks, very thinly sliced (1/8-1/4 inch thick)
- 6 cloves garlic, quartered and sliced thinly
- 1⁄2 cup chopped parsley
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar (or less) or 1 1⁄2 tablespoons white wine
- salt and pepper
- Pound steaks with a meat mallet until very thin. Salt and pepper both sides of steaks.
- Combine remaining ingredients, and brush onto steaks.
- Allow to marinate for at least 1/2 an hour.
- Heat a small amount of olive oil over fairly high heat, until just about smoking, fry steaks very quickly on each side, just enough for it to lose the pink--don't worry if it isn't cooked completely through--it will be after the next step.
- Remove any burned garlic.
- Transfer steaks to a shallow pot and cover.
- With the juices remaining in the pan, add a little white wine and reduce just a bit and pour over steaks.
- Heat through.
- The steam from the sauce will have cooked the steaks through.
- Serve with crusty french bread and garlic mayo.
- These can be made into sandwiches too!
These steaks are totally awesome. I didn`t have to make them because I`ve been served these many times in your home canarygirl. They are also very tasty when served with roasted red peppers. They are wonderful as a main dish meat or as a sandwich. Keep up with the good cookin. I`ll be your guinea pig anytime!!!
I used this as a marinade for some venison steaks. Threw everything in a plastic container and froze it. Decided to go camping and threw this in the cooler. By the time we were ready to make dinner, the steaks were thawed and ready to put on the grill. Everyone loved it and couldn't tell it wasn't beef steak! Thanks!
What a great way to us thinly sliced round steaks! Tons of flavor for very few ingredients. I served with a horseradish mayo dip. Will try it on sandwiches next time.
