I’ve been feeling out of sorts lately thus have not been blogging much. But I don’t want to totally neglect this blog so here is my new recipe to keep myself going. Don’t get fooled this is a Filipino recipe with a Spanish sounding name. This somewhat reminds me of another favorite steak a la pobre.

To make, cut some good quality beef like sirloin into cubes. I used about 2 lb ribeye steak for this recipe. Then marinate this in the following: 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce, 1/4 cup Knorr liquid seasoning ( I don’t have this so I just substituted low sodium soy sauce) and 1 tablespoon sweet or smoked paprika.

Take a pan and fry 4-5 pieces garlic cloves finely chopped until golden brown. Set aside.

Remove excess oil from pan and then sear or fry your meat in batches until brown on all sides. You don’t need to cook it for long specially if you have good quality meat, it shouldn’t be tough or crisp but seared and tender inside. Then put back in pan all the cooked meat, add a few pats of butter and allow it to coat the beef cubes until it’s become somewhat glossy.

Transfer onto a serving plate and top with the garlic crisp. Serve over rice.
