Recipes with Milanesa Steak

Searching recipes with Milanesa Steak?  We have two recipes with Milanesa Steak to share with you today, how exciting and yummy too!

Our recipes using milanesa steak are milanesa steak recipes without breadcrumbs.  Milanesa steak is an economical choice for dinner, especially when making steak roll ups.  This milanesa steak roll up recipe is very easy to make.   

About a year ago I came across a steak cut called Milanesa and I was curious how to make this dish.  I looked it up and I did try this yummy dish, I was not always wanting a breaded beef dinner though.  I will share our recipe for this dish soon if you are interested.  I think it is always a good idea to have different ways to make certain ingredients.  

As I have explained before, we experiment around here in the kitchen.  I am not a chef, or a baker, or have any training in food, just what I learn and pick up along the way cooking in my own kitchen.  

My grandmother would gasp if she knew I shared that with you.  She believes recipes were made, and you follow them, no ifs, ands, or buts about it.  I often wonder if she has ever deviated from a recipe in her life?  The many recipes she uses were handed down to her from her mother, and decided to stick with them over the years since they were already tested and loved.  

In my opinion, I think the kitchen should be a fun space where you get to try new recipes, and not be afraid to make mistakes, learn, and share with others the spoils of your labor.  I have never been one to follow the directions to a tee when cooking anyway.  I still love those beloved recipes handed down over the years too, I find such nostalgia when sitting down to a meal that we have had for so many years, I just need to edit them a bit for me.      

I can tell you there are ups and downs in our kitchen all the time.  I have what I think is a wonderful idea, and then BAM, it turns out to be a real dud.  Those are the days I think maybe I should give up this experimenting thing in the kitchen, but then I think to myself, my food choices are already limited with allergies, I do deserve to have options, don't you agree?  

I get bored (if only my momma heard me say bored... she would come unglued!) eating the same thing day after day, and I am sure those in the same boat as I am feel the same way.  So... I share what I come up with and hope there is someone out there who benefits from my science lab, or um, I mean kitchen.  

I have picked up milanesa steak many times over the past year after stumbling across it, and I have tried many dishes, but this one was a new one for me.  I have to say, it is a pretty tasty meal, and I am pretty excited to share it with you!  

I made several video clips to share with you so you can see the process of making this meal.  Give us some feedback whether you enjoyed this approach to our recipe.  

What you will need:
  1. 1 package of Milanesa steaks (usually we receive about 8 steaks in one package)
  2. 1 large onion (I chopped one half, and then sliced the other half)
  3. 1 green pepper (sliced)
  4. 1 package of mushrooms (sliced)
  5. Shredded cheese (this depends on your liking)
  6. Salt and Pepper to taste 

As you can see above, I chopped the onion into small pieces.  I only did this for half of the onion.  The other half of the onion, I sliced.

Once I had the onion cut up, I placed it into a skillet coated with olive oil.  The onion cooked while I continued to chop up the rest of my vegetables.

I sliced the green pepper and placed in the skillet with the onion and continued to let them cook.  

Since mushrooms take less time to cook, I sliced them last and added them to the skillet with the rest of my veggies.  

Then I removed the milanesa from the package and began laying one out at a time on my cutting board and began the process of putting each one together.  

When you purchase milanesa, you will find there are several thinly cut steaks in the package.  There were eight in this package, and if memory serves, there are always 8 steaks.  

That is quite a few roll ups, but I went ahead and made all of the steaks into roll ups.  They store well, but I have another video to share with you how I made another meal with the left overs for the next evening.

Be sure not to overstuff your steaks, you want them to stay rolled up.  If they are overfilled, they will come a part.  

I placed the steak roll ups inside the same pan I used to cook my veggies, no sense creating more work for ourselves.  Since the steak is so thin, it does not take a lot of time to cook, about 2 1/2 minutes each side, depending on your stovetop.  I usually cook on a lower heat so I do not burn anything so I did cook mine for about 3 minutes each side.

I cut each steak roll up in half, sprinkled a little bit of cheese, and my extra veggies over the top of my milanesa steak roll ups for garnish and said viola, dinner is ready!  I can tell you these were another big hit in our home.  

This is a pretty easy dish to make despite all of the layering and rolling.  Now, if you have a smaller family, you can put the leftovers in the fridge and have the next day for lunch or dinner, or you can use your leftovers in a slightly different way.  I opted for a dinner with not a lot of cooking, ok none really!  We like those dinners, don't we?

Since I have had several requests for recipe cards, I will be adding them to our recipes to share with you.  It will take me some time to make it through our recipes, but I plan to make things easier for you by fulfilling this request.  Please find below our recipe card for this recipe.  

Find below our second recipe to share with you today.  We do not have a recipe card for this one since it is so simple, and you will be using leftovers.  Thanks and we hope you enjoy this recipe!  

I began by taking a gluten free soft tortilla shell and placing it on my work space.  I cannot tell you how much I love these cutting boards I picked up several years ago.  They really are quite handy!  My mess stays contained, my countertops stay nice, and they are really easy for clean up too!

I have found that the best gluten free soft tortillas are from Mission.  They taste the most like regular flour tortillas.  If you are not gluten free, you can use the flour tortilla of your choice.   

Sprinkle a little bit of cheese over your tortilla, this helps "glue" everything together.  You will not want to put a lot of cheese on your tortilla since overstuffing will make them come a part.

As the video shows, you will take your steak roll up as you made it the evening before and place onto your tortilla.  You will then roll it up inside of the tortilla.  You will get your rolling work-out with these dishes **wink**.   

I decided to make four tortilla steak roll ups.  I placed them all inside of our air fryer, set it to 350 degrees, for 7 minutes.  

Everything was warmed through, our tortillas were slightly browned, and cheese was melted.  As you can see, I decided to make sweet potato chips to go with this dinner.  The second night was just as yummy as the first night.  No complaints here!

Do you think this would become a hit in your home?  We really enjoyed it, and I was happy to only need to cook one time, but get two dinners out of it.  I am working hard on sharing those leftover dinners with you.   

Groceries keep going up and up, I am always flabbergasted when I see that total bill.  I really cannot believe how much groceries have increased over the last two years.  

From experience, I know gluten free is more expensive, so I really try to make sure we are sharing more economical dishes with you all.  Also know, our recipes can be made with regular ingredients as well.  

I am not a fancy cook by any stretch of the imagination.  For years, I would make salads and eat everything in it's most basic form, but my oh my, does life at the dinner table become so tedious.  I am just happy to be experimenting, and sharing, and having a good time while doing it.  Hope you all enjoy your week!
