Lomo de Res, Cuban-Style Rib-Eye Steaks

"This cut of meat is sold in most Mexican or Cuban groceries but can also be found or asked for at any butcher. It is a really thin cut (1/4 inch thick) of boneless rib eye, taken from the small end of the rib roast, you can pan fry it, but I suggest grilling it. I think it is best when taken straight off the grill, sliced and served with a warm tortilla."

  1. Mix together the garlic powder, onion powder, meat tenderizer, and seasoning salt in a small bowl. Rub the seasoning blend into both sides of the steaks.
  2. Arrange 1/4 of the sliced onions in the bottom of a 9x13 inch pan, lay steaks across the onions, top with more onions and pour 1/4 cup of lime juice and 1/4 of the bottle of beer over the top; repeat these layers until you run out of steaks, pouring all remaining lime juice and beer over the top. Cover and refrigerate for 30 to 40 minutes. Do not marinate the steaks for longer than an hour, because the acid from the lime juice in the marinade will begin to cook the meat.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil grate. Place steaks on the grill and discard the marinade.
  4. Grill the steaks to your desired degree of doneness, or about 2 minutes per side for well done. Remove from the grill and allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving with warm tortillas.

This recipe is amazing! I actually cooked it for my Cuban in-laws and they all loved it! The steak by itself is amazing, but we kicked it up a notch by adding a Creole mojo on top. The recipe fo...

I liked it but the Hubby and son said they could taste the beer. Maybe because I used corona which is a bit bitter. Next time I'll use a pale ale and orange slices or juice.

wow dave England we all enjoyed this steak

Most excellent just the way I have gotten it in the Caribbean and South America. I suggest using Pacifico or Negra Modelo as it has more of the Cuban Bucanero flavor, more nutty than other Lager...

This was a really delicious marinade. I added scallions and cilantro to the marinade. It was even better as leftovers!

Very good marinade! I've used it 2 times now and I'm sure I will use it again.

Wow, wonderful recipe! Thanks! I made it last night and my husband loved it. I don't have a grill, so I had to pan fry the steaks and they turned out very nicely. I made 2 steaks, so I did n...

I thought the lime was too overpowering, which is weird 'cause I normally love it! I had only marinaded it for 20 minutes. I had added cumin and some sage, but perhaps that's what gave it the gr...
