Anyway, the "catch" is that it's what they call "milanesa" meaning it's sliced down to about 1/4 inch thick. Down here, they just throw it on a grill with lots of oil/lard and fry it up quick (usually a bit overcooked and dried out), however, that is not exactly on my diet.
Most recipes I find are breaded and fried, which I wanna steer clear of too.
Can you come up with a way to roll it or stuff it with something healthy or casserole it or otherwise make a tasty, healthy dish out of a good portion of it?
I've got 15+ lbs of it... I better find a way to love it!
Marinade it (olive oil, garlic, bay leaves, chillies, Worcestershire sauce, a touch of tomato puree, salt and pepper) grill it, cut it in strips, make some pico de gallo
(you can add tomate machacado
to it so as to make it juicier, and also some capers or chopped olives) and make tacos.
Add a dressing made of mustard, olive oil and orange juice and you're laughing.
As a casserole dish, why not try it as a fricasse? Want my recipe?
