Palomilla Steak (Bistec de Palomilla)This is a Cuban-style filet mignon. The lime juice, onions, and garlic are essential in giving the steak its flavor.
3 tbsp butter
1 tbsp olive oil
6 thin-sliced top sirloin steaks
2 tbsp lime juice
1 large onion (chopped to strips)
4 garlic cloves (minced)
salt and ground black pepper
Heat the olive oil and 1 tbsp of butter over medium-high heat in a large frying pan. Place two to three pieces of the steaks in the pan and saute 1 minute on each side. Repeat again until all the steaks have been cooked. The steaks should be very thinly cut, so cooking time should only be a few minutes. Place the steaks on a paper towel covered plate and keep them warm. Immediately add the lime juice, garlic, 2 tbsp of butter, and onions and allow to cook over medium-low heat for a couple of minutes. Pour the saute over the steaks, add salt and pepper to taste and serve with white rice and black beans, enjoy!
