How to Make Cuban Breaded Steak
When I think of Cuban breaded steak or Bistec Empanizado, my mouth waters instantaneously. What is bistec empanizado or Cuban breaded steak? Well let me tell you. It has a golden crust that envelops tender marinated steak. Think the Cuban version of chicken fried steak.
Twenty plus years ago I learned from my Cuban mother in law if a loaf of French bread was leftover from dinner, never throw it away! It is kept until it is dried out and then crushed or blended up for breadcrumbs. “Why?”, I asked. The answer was so there is always fresh breadcrumbs to make Cuban breaded steak.
Don’t want the extra carbs from a breaded steak? Then check out bistec encebollado, steak with onions.
If there happens to be any leftover steaks then don’t ever throw them away either. Fry them in the morning with a couple of fried eggs and start your morning with the best steak and eggs you’ve ever had!!
