Hello my hungry hungry readers, get ready because todays recipe is going to make your mouth water. Last night my Abuela made one of my dad’s favorites Bistec a la Milanesa. Bistec a la Milanesa is a steak that is breaded and accompanied by ham and Swiss cheese. My Abuela usually takes about an hour to make them which drives me crazy because the aroma in the air drives the people in my house insane. My Abuela accompanies this delectable meal with white rice, black beans and fried plantains just to kill us all a little more the preparation of el Bistec a la Milanesa sounds pretty easy but try it on your own and you will see. First you must purchase a thin cut Palomilla steak, about half of a pound of ham (my favorite is Publix brand honey ham), one half of Swiss cheese (any of your preference), a low sodium marinara pasta sauce, 4 jumbo eggs, half a cup of bread crumb (my Abuela uses natural bread and puts them in the blender) and salt and pepper to taste.  If you guys are ever interested in eating this yummy meal a big recommendation would be La Carreta or Versalles. They both have a delicious combination of Cuban spices and fresh taste.

·      Place the eggs in a shallow bowl or pan, and whisk them together with the oregano and some salt and pepper.

·      Stir the parmesan cheese and garlic into the bread crumbs and place them in another shallow pan.

·      Dip the steaks first in the egg mixture, then in the bread crumbs, coating them well with the crumbs.

·      Heat the olive oil in a heavy skillet, and cook steaks for several minutes on each side, until golden brown and crispy. Drain steaks on paper towels.

·      Place steaks on a baking sheet. Turn on oven broiler. Top each steak with a slice of ham, 2-3 tablespoons tomato sauce, and 1/4 cup grated Mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle Italian seasoning over the cheese and place steaks under broiler until cheese melts.
