Carne en Bistec – Colombian Steak

Serve this with an egg on top and it’s called Bistec a Caballo. My Mom is Colombian, and made this dish all the time when I was a kid, it was one of my favorites! A few other Latin recipes I love, Carne Machacada (Cubes Steak with Peppers and Onions) Carne Guisada and Garlic-Lime Marinated Pork Chops.

Carne en Bistec a caballo

If I had to describe Latin cuisine in one word, it’s definitely flavor and comfort. My friends and family love when I cook some of the Latin dishes I grew up eating, for me those dishes are my comfort food. Picadillo, Sancocho, Pollo Guisado are all dishes that feel like home to me.

You’ll find variations of this recipe in different South and Central American countries and regions. Some finely chop the tomatoes and onions, some use scallions in place of onions which is also delicious. As a kid I used to push the onions away, but now I just love them. For me, the egg on top is a must but it’s totally optional.

Helpful Tips

  • Have all your ingredients prepped before you start cooking.
  • Slice the steaks very thin so they cook fast.
  • Serve over cauliflower rice or sauteed veggies to make it low-carb.
  • Sirloin tip side steak or London broil is a great option, it’s extra lean steak with very little marbling. This cut usually needs to marinate or be cut very thin so that it won’t be tough. Here is a great reference I like to refer to often for the 29 lean cuts of beef. If your budget permits, buy grass fed beef which is lower in saturated fat and cholesterol, and higher in omega-3 fatty acids, which are considered heart-healthy.

  1. I made this for my Columbian step-daughter and son-in-law when visiting them. She was touched that I thought of making this. It is an easy, flavorful and make again type of recipe! Make it lower carb with cauli-rice!

  2. wow, wow, wow! Everyone LOVED this!!! A definite keeper 😉

  3. This looks delicious.  This may sound stupid but can I use tomato sauce instead of the tomatoes?  My husband refuses to eat tomatoes in any form other than sauce. 

  4. This was super easy and super delicious! Thanks!

  5. This checks all the boxes- healthy, affordable, simple ingredients that are usually on hand, easy prep, fast and delicious!  I have made this several times and it never disappoints.  It’s one of my go-to recipes for a busy day.  

  6. This recipe is so easy to make and so delicious! My husband and I loved it. This is definitely going into my rotation. I served it with rice and threw some sweet plantains in the air fryer. Yum! Thanks Gina!

  7. Hi! Cant wait to try this this week! What am I marinating the meat in? I want to be sure to have it as tender as possible. Just the salt and garlic?

  8. Delicious and tender!

  9. Delicious! Stepped out of our family comfort zone and I am glad I did. My husband and 6yo also thoroughly enjoyed it over rice with the egg. I was worried about the cooked tomatoes but it came together wonderfully. 

  10. This was very good,  I used venison back strap. No gamey taste at all.  Definitely a keeper.  Modified for just us two.  

  11. Delicious!  We tried it with cauliflower rice and regular rice and liked both.

  12. I absolutely love this recipe! It’s quick and delicious. I serve it over brown rice. It is a great weeknight meal 🙂

  13. FABULOUS!!! I followed your recipe as written but I sliced my top sirloin while it was partially thawed making it easier to trim & slice. Then I put the sliced meat into a plastic ziploc bag with 1/2 teaspoon of each kosher salt, garlic powder & cumin, and allowed the meat to finish thawing in the frig. The only other tweak was that since I was boiling potatoes as our side, instead of using tap of bottle water, I used the measurement of potato water. Overall this is going into regular rotation.

  14. This was AMAZING! I’m not a big egg fan, but the egg made the dish. Wow. Will make many times again.

  15. WOW!!  I followed the recipe exactly, this we so good!  Hubs usually does not like cooked tomato but said it really gave great flavor to the dish!  Will defiantly put into our rotation.

  16. I bore easily and rarely re-make a recipe more than a few times… but this was SO GOOD and SO EASY…. gonna try and make myself put it into a regular rotation. Even plan on stocking up on sirloins at Costco, slicing and freezing them, for even faster weeknight food. Roasted wedges of sweet potato and green beans while making the meat. Truly, dinner in 30 minutes.

  17. My husband hates cumin.  Do you have a suggestion for a substitute?

  18. This was so quick and easy to make and came out amazing. I don’t know what I would do without Skinnytaste the books and website are my go to for weekly meal planning.

  19. Can this dish be frozen and if so for how long?

    Thank you.

  20. Can I freeze this dish and for how long?

    Thank you

  21. I made this last week. I had a steak in the freezer just shy of a pound and wanted to move it. Did not have fresh tomatoes so I used a can of fire roast tomatoes and it turned out fantastic. It is the high sear on the meat that makes the wonderful flavor.  Don’t skip this part. 

  22. Made this dish tonight came out delicious. I also made brown rice to go with it.

  23. All but the 8-year-old loved this. He could do without so many tomatoes and onions starring him in the face. 
    Delicious left overs too. 
    We give it an A and say the kid is crazy. 

  24. So yummy! Topped with a sunny side up egg really makes it. I added some huy fung chili sauce to the rice and meat and it was really delicious.

  25. Make this recipe as written, we loved it! The whole family!

  26. Wow! Yummy! My husband, my mom, and I loved this dish. My husband and my mom ate it with rice, and I had a mix of regular rice and cauliflower rice. Your recipes have expanded our pallets to dishes we never would have heard of if it wasn’t for your delicious and healthy meals.

  27. The whole family loved this – it’s always a win when the teenage boys go back for seconds (and thirds)!

  28. This recipe is amazing without any modifications. We loved it! Thank you for another wonderful and healthy creation!

  29. This was really good and so quick and easy to make on a weeknight. The one change I would make is that the “sauce” is completely lacking in flavor. I added in a little soy sauce and some chicken broth to liven it up and next time I will also add in some Worcestershire. Was great over rice.

  30. Could flank steak also work for this?

  31. Made this last night … I thought I was the only one in the family that liked cumin but the entire family loved it! So quick and versatile: 2 of us had it over cauliflower rice, 1 with a side of leftover mashed potatoes and 1 with the fried egg and a side of lettuce topped with sour cream and avocado. All I had to do was make the main dish and everybody served themselves with their chosen sides-easy peasy! (btw, used your recommendation of a london broil sliced thin)

  32. I made this a few nights ago and it was super tasty and satisfying! Really easy to make since I had all my ingredients chopped and ready to go. What really prompted me to comment though, was the lunch I made with the leftovers. Oh my GOODNESS. I dumped all leftovers (juices too) over arugula with avocado and drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I’m currently doing Whole30 and this is the best lunch I’ve had yet. Thank you, Gina!!

  33. Absolutely delicious and easy to make. Great with the egg on top! I

  34. I just made this last week, and it was amazing. I added a little more water and let everything cook down bc to more of a sauce (7-8 min). I poured it over 1/4 cup rice, put an egg on top, 1/4 avocado, and chef’s kiss! So good and so luxurious 

  35. I’ve never commented on a recipe before but felt this deserved high praise.  It was so good!  The only downside being that between my teenage son and husband there weren’t any leftovers for work the next day,  thank you for a delicious dinner recipe.

  36. Can this recipe be adjusted to an instant pot?

  37. This is delicious!  I made it with Top Sirloin (recommended by butcher and it was on sale at Whole Foods last week with an additional discount for Prime members) and added some cilantro at the end.  I saved it with cauliflower rice cooked /sautéed in a little bit of beef bouillon.  I had it with the egg on top, but my husband opted to skip the egg.  We’ll be having this again!

  38. We loved this recipe.  We were a little concerned about adding the egg but it was so good!! 

  39. Served it over rice for my husband and with an egg “a caballo” for myself. Delicious.

  40. I made this Monday night – Delicious!!!!!!  I used filet mignon – so tender!!!  I also added a bit of sliced mushrooms and used canned tomatoes instead of fresh.  I served mine with a fried egg on top and served mashed potatoes for my hubby.  We also each a side salad – yum!!!  I will be making this again!!!

  41. I’m planning to make it tonight. Can it be in an air fryer? 

  42. Made this last night, doubling the onions and tomatoes and the amount of cumin, and it was fantastic. Served it with your Cilantro Lime Rice, canned refried beans and tortillas (street taco size). Will definitely be making again as my whole family including the child who doesn’t like cooked tomatoes liked it. Just disappointed there a no leftovers!

  43. The flavor was SO good but I think I used the wrong cut of steak. I used skirt steak I believe, I couldn’t find what the recipe called for. Are their other cuts that are good substitutes for sirloin tip? 

    • They really just need to be thin steaks. Sometimes I but a london broil and slice it thin. I never do you skirt for this, although I am sure that was yummy!

  44. This looks so good Gina!  When I saw it in my inbox it reminded me of a dish that I ate very often when I was in Peru.  Definitely adding this goodness to my meal planning for this month!

  45. Hello Gina,   Why is this 5 points on purple, but 4 on blue and green?  

  46. Had this tonight and we really enjoyed it! Next time, I won’t cook down the tomato/onion/beef sauce as much because it was super when it coated everything. I might add some more cumin along with some ancho chili powder because we come from the southwestern part of the country and we like things a little spicier. This was a keeper!

  47. Quick and tasty. Will be making this dish often. Used seasoning to taste however,  Curious what measurement you used Gina to get the nutritional information like sodium. Thanks again for another winner in my home 😄😄

  48. A very tasty recipe.

  49. First, I came onto the site only searching for cubed beef since I was able to procure some in today’s grocery run. Without a plan, I grabbed it because it was fresh and I knew my family would be grateful for meat. Thank goodness for all of the great recipes here and a strong search engine.
    With your help, I made this tonight & it was both easy and delicious. I used can of stewed tomatoes instead of fresh (b/c it was easier and I had them on hand) and it came out great. I think I’ve seen something like this before using sliced green olives and I might add them next time I make this dish. Thank you for all the great ideas! You are saving my bacon during this Covid crisis.

  50. I made this tonight with round steak. It was delicious and easy to prepare.

  51. Please post the amounts of spiced? mine was bland

  52. It is very good and easy to make. 

  53. This looks great! I’m making it tonight and am very excited. I love trying new recipes from other cultures and although I’m not on weight watchers, I do insist on eating very healthy and I love how you’re helping other people get healthy too. That’s awesome! I am planning on serving this over riced cauliflower to stick with the food combining guidelines, and even lower carbs. Thank you!

  54. Can i add bell peppers and jalapenos too

  55. I’ve made this at least 10+ times and it’s fantastic! So easy to make during the week and loaded with flavor. I’ve served it over rice, with just the fried egg, in hoagie rolls as a steak sandwich, I’m always switching it up. Your recipes are absolutely amazing!!

  56. Hi Gina!

    Can I use flank steak for this recipe?

  57. This was delicious! Served with a baked sweet potato, and felt like a very decadent meal 🙂

  58. Hey, this looks awesome! My husband is not a fan of tomatoes do you think a sauce or some tomato paste would work in this? thank you for all you do!

  59. Made this friday night. My steak wasn't the most tender, but it was still delicious. We both loved it!

  60. Made this last night and it was delicious! My kids and husband loved it and all had seconds. My son ate every bite and he is our pickier eater and usually won't eat anything that has onions or tomatoes in it, but he ate every bite! 🙂

  61. I made this twice last month and plan on making it again tonight for guests!! My 5 1/2 year old loves it, as does my husband. Thank you for sharing so many wonderful healthy recipes.

  62. I tried this one for dinner last night! Delicious!!!! I added a pinch of pepper flakes to spice it up a little. Awesome recipe! 🙂

  63. Have you or anyone ever tried this over a charcoal grill?

  64. Soy Colombiana y me ha encantado tu receta.
    Saludos!!

  65. Omg, eating this as I type….in LOVE! Gina, you make me look like a cooking goddess in my house! Not only is it deliciously amazing, but it's soooooo quick and easy to make! Keep up the great work and I'll keep coming back for more!! 🙂

  66. OMG! Made this last night, it was amazing. I am Puerto Rico and I love my latin food. I paired it with the baked season fries. SO GOOD. Glad a friend told me about this site. I can see myself using alot of these recipes.

  67. Gina,
    I've made quite a few of your recipes; but this one has become a staple in my house! AMAZING and so simple!!! Thank you for making me look like such an amazing cook! 😉

  68. WOW! this is amazing! I just made it! Thank you for the great recipe… can't wait for my husband to come home… having a bowl now. lol

  69. Sooo delicious!!! We just made tonight. Thank you as always! 🙂

  70. making this tonight for mothers day, pairing with arroz gandulies, is that a good Fit?

  71. I JUST found you about a week ago, and I'm addicted!!! I made this recipe tonight for my two guys (my husband and 9 year old) and they both LOVED it. I could have eaten way more than my one serving, but that one serving was so filling!! Thank you thank you thank you for what you've done at making healthy eating so much easier and enjoyable!

  72. oh my this is delicious! it was so simple and quick! the brown rice took longer to cook ha. the egg looked so good i had to try it so i probably ate too much but it was worth it. delicious!

  73. Preparing it right now!!! Smells delicious!!! Thanks!!!

  74. Gina,

    I made this a couple of nights ago and it was absolutely amazing. I added mushrooms and used stew beef instead. Even with the variation it was great and what's even better is that my husband loved it.

    Today I am making it again for my in-laws as Sunday dinner, instead I am making it in a crockpot – I hope it comes out as great as the first one!!!

    Thank you so much for this great recipe!

  75. Thank you so much!! My husband is from Colombia and we are always looking for Colombian restaurants. Having moved from NY where there's one on every corner, to NC where there's one 2 hours away, we've been really missing the cuisine! I can't wait to surprise him tonight with this and the salpicon! Thanks again!! 🙂

  76. Can I use eye of round steak for this?

  77. Just made this and it turned out GREAT! I like things spicy so I spiced it up a bit. Hubby loves anything in a tortilla so he added black beans and turned it into a burrito of sorts! also very yummy! thanks for the recipe!

  78. Erica, so glad you can make some of your childhood dishes!

    And I really glad you all liked it!

    Kristy, sorry I don't.

  79. I noticed you said you had family in the DR, my husband & I just vacationed there for our 10 year wedding anniversary & loved it & the food. I was wondering if you might know, the resort we stayed at served a kind of mushroom salad (I ate it off the buffet everyday & it was so delish) I think it had mushrooms, onions & peppers & they had been marinated. Do you have any idea what it was, I would love the recipe.

  80. We don't eat a lot of meat but made this on the weekend "IT WAS GREAT"!! I substituted dry garlic for fresh which was softened in the onion just prior to the tomatoes going in. Served with an egg on top and cooked spinach on the side (no rice)…it's definitely a keeper in my recipe box!

  81. I love this dish & make it often. It's so easy & I often have leftovers in the morning with the egg you suggested for a low carb alternative. Thanks for all of your recipes!

  82. I've always wanted to cook homemade Colombian meals that I grew up with for my husband but I never learnt exactly how to make; it especially healthy. I made this last night and he thoroughly enjoyed it. I enjoyed the smell that filled the house, it brought back so many wonderful memories. This will definitely be put on rotation.

    It was DELISH! Thanks!

  83. This was delicious, the meat was so tender. I added some fresh cilantro. DELISH

  84. White rice cooked with salt is perfect with this, the sauce has plenty of flavor!

  85. I am making this tonight for my boyfriend! It sounds sooo good, I can't wait for dinner! I was wondering if there is a rice recipe I could use so it is not made with plain rice. Or do I not need a flavorful rice since the dish seems so tasty?? Thank you Gina for this site, I am so inspired and excited about cooking again!

  86. My husband adores this! He is from Honduras and Hondurans love cumino. Like you, we also go heavy on that spice. We buy it fresh ground and it makes a difference in taste. Thank you!!

  87. Here is the link… https://www.skinnytaste.com/2008/11/colombian-chicken-sancocho-8-pts.html

  88. Where is the sancocho ? I am from Colombia and Sancocho is my favorite. thank you for all you do, it is making my WW life style much easier.

  89. These are so good with the marinara sauce!

  90. I'm so glad you liked it!! I love this dish!

  91. My husband and I LOVED this recipe! It was so easy to make and so full of flavor! It is very rare that my husband likes anything I cook, and he raved about how good this was. Thanks for sharing!

  92. Made this for dinner last night with rice. My 5 yr old cleaned her plate! Thanks for sharing all these wonderful recipes.

  93. So easy and so good! I'm usually really bad at figuring out how much to put of anything without specific directions but this turned out great 🙂

  94. Ok! I have a lightened up Sancocho, aji picante, I'll work on some more soon!

  95. Hey, my family is all from Colombia but they never write down their recipes! Ugh. I'm glad I found your blog thorough Pinterest!! I love this meal. My Mom makes this all the time.
    It's absolutely wonderful.
    Thank you for sharing this, I'm looking forward to more Colombian recipes. 😀

  96. Good!! 🙂

  97. so i grabbed the wrong steak at the grocery store and didnt know it until i came home (new york loin)..i went with it anyway and cooked it as instructed, and booooy was it delicious!!!!!

  98. I cooked this last night and it was amazing. I served it with white rice and your avocado salad and everything was ready in 45 minutes. This brought back memories of summer vacations spent in DR.

    My picky three year old daughter said that it was good and finished all her food which was a great compliment considering that she thinks all my cooking is "yucky".

    Thanks for all the Latin recipes.
    Soly

  99. Looks delish! I didn't go shopping this week but have all these ingredients on hand. Going to be tonight's dinner!

  100. I am picking this from my teeth as we speak. It was delicious, fresh, quick, and very easy. I will definitely be putting this into my dinner rotation. Thank you!

  101. Beth – Sure, any thin steak would work so you can use a minute or pepper steak.

  102. I would LOVE to make this, but I have a beef question. We keep kosher, and it's pretty $$$ to get red meat. The more affordable kosher beef selections at the supermarket are minute steak, pepper steak, cube steak. Would one of these work in this recipe?

  103. I just googled 'cuminto' as I didn't know what it was. Bad idea!!!

  104. Okay…I made this with chicken AND with tofu yesterday. I have a friend that is vegan and she absolutely loved it. It was my first time making anything with tofu…I marinated the tofu and the chicken in the GOYA mojo for about an hour first. I added some fresh garlic too, and cooked the chicken a little longer and it just fell apart. After reading the reviews, I was heavy palmed with my cumin, we like flavor!! Thank you so very very much for your ideas.

  105. I made this a couple weeks ago, I loved it. My son is not a great big "beef" eater so I'm making it tonight with chicken, hopefully it'll be just as good.

  106. I think diced tomatoes with green chiles would be fabulous!! It would give it a Mexican flare!

  107. I wonder if you could used the diced tomatoes with green chiles.

  108. This was sooooooo good!I now have made 5 of your dishes.

  109. I love this for breakfast!! But with rice.

  110. I have been a fan of your blog since last year. I am on WW and I have a long way to go to get to my goal weight but I love food and I love to cook so I love that you make so many different kind of dishes.

    I am making this dish as we speak. The sauce is delish! I am going to make some yellow rice to have with it and some kind of green veggie on the side. I also plan to save a serving to have as a breakfast during the week with the egg on top served over potatoes o'brien.

  111. I made this for dinner tonight. It was just fabulous!! I love steak, and I loved cooking it this way. It smelled amazing when it hit the pan!

    Thanks so much for your great recipes. I look forward too cooking your stuff so much. There's always something new to try! I have noticed a number of my Facebook friends starting to post that they made your recipes, too. Yeah for converts!! 🙂

  112. WOW tried this last night, Gotta say my 6 year old which is picky eater loved it. Thanks Gina 🙂

  113. I made this for dinner last night and had roasted carrots and celeriac, steamed green beans and broccoli with it.

    It is lovely, really taste and flavoursome.

    Thank you!

  114. Absolutely amazing and SUPER EASY TO MAKE! My husband loved it!

  115. Great Tara!

    Karen – now that's a first over noodles! Glad you guys enjoyed it.

    Fresh tomatoes are wonderful, I always buy them for recipes. They really do make the dish taste fresh. And this recipe couldn't be easier!

  116. I just made this tonight, it is so good! A few simple ingredients and so quick to fix, I couldn't ask for more! I made it with fresh tomatoes and that's how they made this dish taste, fresh. I have never cooked anything with fresh tomatoes and it made a big difference. I plan to keep this dish in my meal rotation! Thanks for posting it for us!

  117. Had this for dinner tonight and served it over yolk-less egg noodles and topped with the sunny side up egg . . . Yummo!! And my husband loved it as much as I did. Thank you Gina!

  118. I made this tonight & my husband and I loved it. I am so excited that there was a serving left for my lunch tomorrow 🙂

  119. Thanks Lyn for the vote and shout-out!

    Maranda, yes everything is better with an egg!

    Raquel my husband just informed me that he started his low carb diet today so I guess that's bye bye pasta!

    So happy you all like this!

  120. My husband made this for me this weekend and it was fabulous.

  121. Wow Gina!!!! This was a great first recipe to start my low carb diet (just started today). The flavors are tremendous and it is very filling!!! I will definitely be making this again soon!! Wonder how this would taste with chicken? How about over spaghetti squash? Mmmm maybe I'll try that this weekend!!!

  122. Oh awesome, it's looked tasty and delicious

  123. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!!
    deliciosos!!!!! I certainly be sure to try this one!

  124. Wow, I can’t wait to try this recipe. I love the egg on top. I haven’t had that for a very long time. Years ago an old boyfriends mother used to make different recipes for me and she always put an egg on top. I loved it! Sounds silly but I am very excited about this recipe. I also love that you used a grass fed steak. It’s perfect for me because I only eat grass fed beef. I know sometimes it’s hard to find grass fed beef so if you ever need a place, I order mine from La Cense Beef and they deliver it to me. It’s very convenient. Thanks again for this dish!!

  125. This looks delicious. Heading out now to pick up the ingredients.

  126. Wow! This looks amazing! And EVERYTHING is better with an egg right??? Yum!

  127. Nominations are open for Saveur's Best Food Blog Awards. If you haven't voted already please go to this site and vote. I believe Gina should be recognized for her excellence.

    Gina, you have made weight loss painless for many of us. Your recipes are delicious and the photos are flawless. Thanks you very much!
    Lyn

  128. Monica, one can should be ok or maybe 1 1/2. No marinade needed here, just salt and garlic powder.

    Magda- funny how so different countries have different names but lomo saltado sounds yummy!! Anything with Peruvian in the name makes me hungry!

    I'm so happy you like the variety in my recipes, I love variety and would het bored eating the same type of food all the time. For me, mixing ethnic dishes throughout the week couldn't make me happier!

  129. This is very yummy waiting for another one dish.
    Nowadays maintaining diet plays vital role.Fitness is more needed one for everyone hence to practice such diet with healthy foods is must.I wish to share u the link which has details regarding the maintance of diet to have a healthy fit lifestyle

  130. I've been following for a while and I just wanted to finally stop in and tell you how much I appreciate your blog! Every recipe is delicious, the scope of what you put up is commendable (there's something for any culinary mood I'm in), and I love that you don't rely on the use of substitutes such as Splenda. Thank you so, so much for putting so much work into this!

  131. I had this for dinner with rice and brocolli. Outstanding.

  132. Hi, it's me again. Sorry, I forgot one more question – what would you marinate the meat in?

    Thanks again for everything you do. You're making my WW journey so much easier.

  133. Hi Gina. Silly question. I saw you responded above to a poster who asked if you can use diced tomatoes (and the juice as well) – which you said yes. My question is – how many cans of diced tomatoes? I have 14.4 oz cans at home. Would one be enough or do you think 2?

    Thanks.

  134. Susan, sorry if I confused you what I meant is to either marinate or cut very thin.

    we love skinny – aww cute name! So glad you liked it!!

    Those of you who don't like cumin, why not add spices you do like. I can see chipotle chile powder working really well or your favorite steak rub.

  135. So I saw this last night on my way out of the office, and had to make it immediately! IT WAS AMAZING, so rich and, but without the heavy feeling you get after actually over-indulging. I got my entire office on the site and when your new recipe e-mails hit all you can hear is "oooh—ahhhh"! Thanks for being you!

  136. This looks great. Your into indicates this cut of meat usually needs to be marinated but you didn't comment on marinating in the recipe. Just want to ensure I didn't miss a marination step?

  137. Another great recipe! Thankyou

  138. Jamie sure why not. Don't drain, use the juice instead of adding water.

  139. This sounds delicious. I might make it tonight.

    Do you think this would work with canned diced tomatoes if I drained them?

  140. I should have mentioned I am generous with the cumin!! But add to your taste.

    Kimberly I cut it myself. Sharpen your knife before you cut or you can put the meat in the freezer for like 10-15 minutes to make it easier to cut.

    Sharon, my pleasure!!

  141. You are SOOOO inspiring! Thank you for creating these awesome recipes! 🙂 You ROCK!

    P.S. On Weight Watchers for 8 weeks now and I'm down 15 lbs! Thanks for helping by helping me create delicious, low fat options!

    Sharon

  142. This looks great! Do you buy your steak cut this thin, or do you cut it at home?
