Bistec a la Mexicana

I love to watch Rick Bayless’ show “Mexico – One Plate at a Time” on PBS. Yesterday he made “Bistec a la Mexicana”. He stir fried some thin cut beef steaks that were cut into strips. While cooking the steak, he made a simple tomato salsa with 2 large fresh tomatoes, 2 serrano peppers, 1 garlic clove and a handfull of fresh cilantro. He put all that stuff into a food processor and made the salsa. Once the beef was done, he removed it from the pan and cooked the salsa in the same pan until the liquid was reduced a little bit. Then he added the beef back into the pan and cooked it to let the flavors come together. Add some salt, and voila! A very tasty dish! Serve with rice and black beans and garnish with green onions and sour cream. I made this tonight and it’s definitely worth making again. It’s tasty and so easy to make too. Yum!
