Mild or Spicy... YOU choose! This Spanish Steak recipe was passed down several generations and on to me by my Grandmother. EXCELLENT dish best served with mashed potatoes and green beans. I like to pour the sauce from the steaks on my potatoes as gravy.

Making a sandwich the next day out of the leftover steaks and sauce is SUPER yummy too!

The picture to the left is of the Spanish Steak before it simmers for an hour. It comes out a little dark and thicker in the end.
