This a very simple, very tasty and very Mexican way of preparing such a popular cut as the steak. When someone walks along the zocalo or through the Mexican streets, there are times in which one comes across with stalls where the beef and onion aroma can be perceived. It is in these stalls, where the steak with onions is prepared over a grill.
This steak with onions recipe is magical because the flavor of the steaks and the flavor of the onion mix in the frying pan while they are fried and they create a new, different and spectacular flavor.
Sprinkle over the both sides of 1.1 lbs of beef steaks pepper to taste and 3/4 of a tablespoon of salt; then set aside.
If you want and you like garlic’s taste, sprinkle some garlic powder over each one of the steaks.
Heat in a frying pan over medium heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
Incorporate in the frying pan:
The rings of the Onions that were cut.
1/4 tablespoon of Salt.
Mix the frying pan ingredients and fry the onion rings for about 5 minutes, until they are moderately fried; stir regularly. Then set aside.
Fry the Steaks
Heat in another frying pan over medium-high heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
Put in the frying pan the steaks with the ones you worked (just the ones that fit in) and fry them for about 2 minutes per each side, until they are well cooked or to the level of doneness that you like the most.
Transfer from the frying pan to the other frying pan (where the onions are) the steaks that were cooked and place them over the fried onion rings; then set aside.
The steaks are placed over the onion rings so the flavors mix.
Repeat the same procedure with the steaks that were not fried, it will be necessary to add in the frying pan more olive oil.
Serve the steaks and put over them some of the fried onion rings.
A Delicious Steak!
Recommendation: Accompany your steaks with some spicy and deliciousfought chilies. The best combination!
Variation: If you liked the steak with onions you also have to try the famous arrachera, a beef cut that is tender and full of flavor.
