1 large white onion

1 clove garlic

Salt to taste

1 teaspoon of dye (achiote) - optional


Wash the meat well and cook it in a pressure cooker with water to cover the flank steak for 30 min and add salt to taste.

After 30 min. take it out and cut it in pieces.

In a separate pan fry the finely chopped white onion, tomato, garlic and scallions, add salt and oil and simmer until it becomes a soft and homogeneous mixture.

Add the tomato sauce, dye and the meat pieces.
