Directions

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and pan-fry the round steaks 5 minutes on each side, or to desired doneness.
  2. Slice the rolls lengthwise. Spread about 1 tablespoon of sour cream onto one side of each roll, and top with about 1/3 cup of mashed pinto beans per sandwich. Place a cooked round steak per sandwich on top of the pinto beans, and then layer each sandwich with one-fourth of the avocado slices, tomato slices, and sliced pickled jalapenos, about 1/2 cup of shredded lettuce, 1/4 cup of cilantro, and 1/4 cup of crumbled queso fresco cheese. Squeeze a lime wedge over each sandwich, close, and serve.

My family is accustomed to the authentic Donut Shop tortas, as we live on the Mexican border. Still, they loved this recipe. I toasted birrote bread on a skillet with a bit of butter before spreading a mixture of sour cream and mayonnaise and also added onions to them. Served with steak fries.

These sandwiches are great, and very versatile. We like to put a spicy tomato sauce over the top of ours. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
