When I first found this recipe, I knew it was going to be good, but what I didn't know was that it was going to be amazing! There are very few ingredients in this Mexican style steak, just follow the recipe, don't change or add anything. It makes the most wonderful gravy, and the meat is fork tender! I am so pleased to share this recipe with you! Enjoy!
