Bistec a la Criolla are steaks served with a delicious sautéed onion and tomato sauce. You can prepare them with any piece meat but we prepare them with bistec relajado—a piece of meat cut thick and then butterflied to a thickness of a quarter of an inch. This makes them very quick to cook, and larger to the eye than they really are, normally no more than six ounces in weight.
