Bistec Ranchero (Ranch Style Bistec)

Today I decided to cook my dad’s favourite breakfast because I am celebrating that my Instagram account had reached 2000 followers, so that means a lot to me. There are two thousand people follow me in this Mexican food adventure, so that for me is so cool and the best way to celebrate is by cooking on of father’s favourite dishes.

My dad used to order this breakfast every time we used to go to “Leonardos” a restaurant in San Antonio de las Minas. There the do this dish that they have called “Querendon” (love one) and it has two eggs, refried beans and this special stew dish made with meat “Bistec Ranchero”, so you can imagine how filling and comforting this dish is.

For my Bistec Ranchero I always buy  the best cut I can find in my local butcher, I ask them to slice it very thinly and cut it is strips, in this occasion I bought Sirloin steak.

So if you ever have people staying at home and you want to impress them with a nice Mexican breakfast this is the right recipe.

Serves 2

Prep 15 min

Cook 20 min

Ingredients 

  • 250 gr Sirloin steak, thinly cut and cut again in strips
  • 2 tomatoes roughly chopped
  • 1 small onion julienne
  • 1/2 green pepper julienne
  • 1 fresh jalapeño whole
  • 1 clove garlic peeled
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp rapeseed oil

Method

 

Heat a casserole dish to medium heat, once is hot add the oil then add the meat and cook for 5 min, stirring continuously, add the salt and pepper and then all the vegetables including the whole jalapeño and garlic, cook for 15 min, stirring the ingredients from time to time and making sure that the meat doesn’t get dry, if it does, add a little bit of water.

While the meat is cooking, prepare the eggs, here you can cook them the way you like them, I like mine fried. Have the refried beans ready and once the Bistec ranchero is cooked, serve it with the eggs and refried beans. Don’t forget to heat some corn tortillas and a nice cup of coffee!

Listo!

Provecho!
