All Rights Reserved


  • 4 sirloin steaks cut to 1/2 inch thickness
  • 4 cloves garlic, mashed
  • salt, pepper, cumin and smoked paprika to taste
  • 2 large onions, sliced thinly
  • 4 medium Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and sliced thinly
  • 1 packet Sazon seasoning (optional)
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 extra large eggs

How to make Bistec a lo Pobre

Rub the steaks with the garlic. Season with the salt, pepper, cumin and smoked paprika. Set aside.

Heat the oil in a large skillet or frying pan. Add the onions and potatoes and sprinkle with salt, pepper and the Sazon, if using. Saute the onions and potatoes over medium to medium-high heat, until very tender, about 10 minutes. I find it helpful to cover the pan for the first several minutes and finish it uncovered. Remove to a serving platter and keep warm.,,
In the same pan, sear the steaks on each side and cook them until they are done to your liking. Add a little more oil if you need to. Set them aside with the potatoes and onions. Continue to keep warm...
Fry the eggs, sunny side up, in a nonstick pan. Leave the yolks soft and runny. Lay one egg on top of each steak.

Serve all together.

    Acabo de terminar de almorzar, y de disfrutar un buen bistec a lo pobre. ¿Esta receta es sólo de Chile, o sabes de algún otro lugar del mundo donde se prepare o sea conocido así. Saludos.

    No creo que sea un plato ni siquiera exclusivo de latino América.
