 Make your today amazing with my mama’s Steak in red sauce recipe!

Growing up my mom was a working single mother of three for a very long time and she would often have to make meals that were cheap, quick, and easy to make. As I got older I started learning how to cook so I can have dinner prepared for us when she got off work.  Now I am a working mom with three kids and no time on my hands &  I usually have to make easy and quick dinners before i have to run to work.  I almost always go back to the food my mom taught me how to cook for us when I was younger  and this recipe is one of our favorites in my house.

Today is one of those days for me, I have all the kids at home running around,
I have to do my hair, wash clothes and get ready for work tonight. So I’ve decided to make this  dish for dinner & share this wonderful recipe with you all  that my mom always made for us growing up.


You Will Need


1 1/2 lbs of cube steak
1 8 oz can of tomato sauce
1/2 cup of Apple Cider vinegar or cooking wine
1 Tablespoon of minced garlic
1 medium onion (sliced)
1/4 cup of oil (Any kind is fine)
1 cup of water
Adobo seasoning
Sazon con culantro y achiote (for color)


-Place a large pot on the stove on medium heat.
-While the pot is heating up slice up the onion and set aside
-Then rinse off the steak and cut up into smaller pieces (this will help it get super tender) like so..
-Season the steak with the adobo seasoning to your liking
-Then dump all ingredients into the pot and season the water which will soon become
your sauce with adobo and the packet of Sazon.
-Please season to your taste, make sure to test it and make sure it is not too salty!
(It will be cooking for a while and will get saltier as time passes)
Note: I add more water to mine because in my house we like the extra sauce to dip some bread in. So if you do not need a lot of sauce then stick with the 1 cup the recipe calls for.
-Once you’ve seasoned it bring to a boil then lower the heat to simmer.
-Simmer steak for 1 hour or until steak is tender.


You can serve this many ways!!


I’ve decided to serve mine  with white rice and fried sweet plantains today.


The traditional Puerto Rican way would be with white rice and red kidney beans.
You can also serve with salad and yucca on the side.


Hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as my family does.
