Cuban Fried Steak
6 top round steaks, 4 oz. each
2 cloves garlic, finely-chopped
juice of 2 limes
salt and freshly ground-black pepper to taste
3 – 4 T. olive oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
6 T. fresh parsley, finely chopped
Pound the steaks on both sides, using a mallet, until 1/4 inch
Slice meat thin. Season with garlic, lime juice, salt, and pepper, and allow to marinate at least 1 hour, refrigerated.
Remove the steaks from the marinade and pat dry. In a large frying pan, heat the oil over medium heat until very hot, and brown each steak for 2 to 3 minutes on each side.
Transfer the steaks to a serving platter and keep warm. Add the marinade and onion to the pan and cook until the onion is slightly wilted, 3 to 4 minutes. Garnish the steaks with the onion and parsley and serve
