Prep Time    : 10 mins
Cook Time   : 25 mins
Total Time    : 35 mins

Servings      : 4


·         1 1/2 or 2 pounds sirloin steak sliced thinly
·         1 lemon or lime -use the juice
·         1 tablespoon vegetable oil or olive oil
·         1/2 teaspoon salt
·         1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
·         2 to 3 large yellow onions thinly sliced(white onion is ok to use)
·         1 tablespoon butter
·         salt and pepper to taste for the onions
·         Optional: 1 jalapeno pepper sliced thin or 1-2 potatoes sliced thin


1.   Place the steaks on a plate and sprinkle salt, pepper, oil and lemon juice on them. Let them sit on the plate for 10 minutes.
2.  Meanwhile, use a regular pan or a cast iron one and heat it up on the stove. Let it be really hot.
3.   Add the meat and cook until no longer pink. The meat should sizzle when you put it in the pan. The cooking time is about 3-4 minutes, but use your judgment as each cut is different and could take more or less time.
4. When cooked remove the steaks from the pan and place them on a warmed plate to rest.
5.   While the meat is cooking, slice the onions. again, use your judgment. If you cook for 4 people, for example, 2-3 large onions should be enough.
6.   In the same pan you cooked the steaks, add the butter and let it melt.
7. Cook onions over medium heat for 15-20 minutes or until onions are golden brown, stirring frequently. Add salt and pepper on them and move them often in the pan with a spatula.
8.  Note: If you want to add jalapeno pepper, add it with the onions. Same with the sliced potato. These are optional ingredients that can go with the onions.
9.  When the onions are golden brown, soft and cooked through, remove them from the pan and place them over the steaks.
10.Serve them right away with  Mexican rice, Authentic Mexican Beans , Ensalada de Nopales or Cactus Salad.
