Bistec con papas y salsa

Bistec con papas y salsa!


You will need:

1 ½ pound of bistec de bola (top round steak)

1 med onion

1 potato

2 tbsp of oil

About 2 cups of salsa (refer to salsa picante recipe) You can substiture Salsa El Pato or no salsa at all if the spice is too hot to handle.

A few tbsp of flour to mix with salsa for thickening


I originally purchased the bistec/steak from my local Latin grocery store with the intentions of making breaded steak but due to the lack of bread crumbs and eggs….. I decided to prepare the meat a different way.


So I cut the meat to about 1 inch or so.....You can have your butcher do this for you.


Put oil in cooking pan. Season meat and then add to oil. For the seasoning I used Adobo all purpose seasoning with pepper. They do sell it without pepper if you don’t care for black pepper. I highly recommend buying this seasoning. Its fudging awesome! I use it on pork, beef, chicken, and on some veggies too. Even on ice cream... well okay not really but it is awesome.


So as the meat starts cooking I dice up the potato and onion.

Then add that goodness to the meat…..Like:

Cover and cook for about 15 minutes. Mix salsa with the flour with a whisk and add to meat. Let meat with salsa simmer for an additional 5-10 minutes.

If you don’t want to make salsa or lack ingredients to make some use Salsa El Pato which is mainly a spicy tomato sauce. This sauce is really good. In fact I usually use it when making this dish but decided to use homemade salsa instead.


Serve bistec con papas y salsa as tacos or with rice and beans. Enjoy! If you try this recipe out or put your own twist on it please do share.
