TORTAS DE MILANESA

 

  • Cooking Time:
  • Servings: 4
  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 4-8 thin sliced sandwich steaks (ESPECIALLY GOOD WITH VERY THIN SLICED RIBEYE, BUT I USUALLY USE WHAT THE SUPERMARKET CALLS "ROULA)
  • 1-2 cup breadcrumbs (FOR DREDGING STEAKS)
  • 2-3 eggs
  • vegetable oil (for frying)
  • 4 good quality sub hotdog buns or 2 loaves French bread
  • sour cream (APP 3/4 CUP)
  • 1 (14 ounce) can refried beans
  • 1/2 lb chorizo sausages (GROUND OR WITH SKINS REMOVED)
  • 8 ounces queso fresco (OR FETA CHEESE)
  • shredded lettuce
  • sliced tomatoes
  • 2 avocados (PEELED AND SLICED THINLY)
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced into rings

Directions

  • Dredge steaks in egg and breadcrumbs, set aside.
  • heat about 1/4 inch oil in a large non-stick skillet to medium heat.
  • test temp of oil by sprinkling some breadcrumbs into oil.
  • if they do nothing the oil is too cold, if they burn the oil is too hot, if they sizzle but don't burn it's ready.
  • fry steaks a few at a time about 3 minutes or so on each side.(just until they are golden brown)
  • put steaks in a warm oven to keep warm while you continue with the next steps.
  • in a small skillet brown chorizo until cooked through, about 5-6 minutes; drain on paper towel and set aside.
  • to assemble sandwiches: you might want to heat bread in a warm oven, but every time i do this step the bread is still cold by the time i am done assembling so i have started to skip this step.
  • if using french bread, half or other wise cut loaf to the size you want for your sandwiches.
  • then split the bread (or sub buns) down the center and scoop out excess bread.
  • to each sandwich you will do the following: to the top half spread liberally with sour cream; sprinkle with crumbled queso fresco.
  • set aside.
  • to the bottom half spread with refried beans.
  • (i just spread it straight from the can with a butter knife) sprinkle with 1/4 of the chorizo.
  • put 1-2 steaks (depending on the size of your steaks) on top of chorizo in one layer.
  • top with shredded lettuce.
  • then add the sliced tomato.
  • followed by the avocado slices.
  • then the onions.
  • add the sandwich top and open really wide!
