Spicy Bottom Round Steak ( Bistec Guisado)

Juliann Esquivel


This steak recipe makes it's own spicy sauce. When finished cooking you can slice, put some sauce over the meat and wrap in warm tortillas and you will something like fajitas. I like to add string beans or Italian style green beans to the sauce the last five minutes before serving. Serve with a rice dish, a salad and dinner is on the table. Enjoy.
