We had some Brazilian marinated sirloin flap/skirt (not sure what it is but Central Market charges $10 lb for it so it must be good, right?) left over from "Brazillian Week" so we made some Tortas tonight. MuyBueno!

Did the cook with cast iron grid down on spider. Oak chunk for a little pep:

TFJ prepped all the sides: cilantro, pickled onions, avocado, refrained beans, cojita cheese. The bread was toasted on cast iron griddle with mayo ( it was really good)

image

Threw it all on toasty crusty bolillos (Mexican savory bread) and it was awesome! Winner, Winner, Brazillian steak dinner.

    Yeah, it's Cuban I think. You simmer a flank in beef stock, garlic, mojo and onions til it will shred. Then you shred it and fry it. Similar to pulled beef but crispy

    ok- yes. We will be doing this soon. maybe my store will have "Cuban Week" so I can pay 40% more for all the ingredients.

    They do pollo frita as well. Great if you make broth with a stewing hen and have the meat to use up. Cuban food is generally pretty boring cause of the embargos and stuff but those two are my favourite when I go there, except for the lobster

    Time to pull out the skewers...

    But damn that looks good. I love those pickled onions or whatever they are whenever you (or TFJ) makes them - beautiful color.
