Beefsteak, Jalisco Style (Bistec de Jalisco)

Recipes >> Mexican Recipes >> Beefsteak, Jalisco Style (Bistec de Jalisco)


  • about 3 pounds beef top round
  • salt
  • 1 orange


Trim off all fat and gash the surface of the steak in a diagonal pattern, making 3/8-inch-deep cuts about 1 inch apart.

Rub the meat lightly with salt. Grill about 5 to 6 inches over medium-hot coals for about 10 minutes on a side for rare meat; or cook to degree of doneness you prefer.

Transfer meat to carving board and squeeze the juice of the orange over the meat. Slice the meat vertically and make sure some juice moistens each piece.
