I picked this recipe up online, but when I went to search for it, couldn’t find it again. I greatly enjoy this recipe, so thank you to whomever posted it.
1 1/2 pounds flank steak, cubed
3 1/2 Cups water
1 Tablespoon salt
1 bay leaf
2 medium-sized onions, one halved, one chopped
1 Tablespoon olive oil
juice of 1 large orange
juice of 1 large lime
salt to taste
Place the steak, water, 2 onion halves, bay leaf and salt in a medium-sized pot and place over medium heat to boil. Once a boil is reached, cover pot, reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes to an hour.
Remove steak and let cool. Shred meat using two forks . Mix the orange juice and lime juice together in a measuring cup or small bowl.
Preheat the oven’s broiler. While the oven is preheating, in a large skillet saute the chopped onion in oil until browned, about 5-7 minutes. Add the shredded steak and half of the juice mixture. Saute for 2-3 minutes then add more of the juice and salt to taste.
Spread the contents of the skillet onto a cookie sheet and place under the broiler until the beef and onions crisp and brown, about 10 minutes. Serve with rice and salad or in a sandwich.
