“To "dar vueltas," means to "flip" or "go around in circles" which is why these steaks are named so! A quick flip in the pan and they're done! These make great sandwiches, or are good alone served with crusty french bread to soak up the sauce. Garlic mayo really compliments the meat too. They can be made with beef, pork or chicken, as long as the cut of meat is very thin. They get better with time, too, so if you want, you could make them a day ahead and just heat them up when you're ready.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pound steaks with a meat mallet until very thin. Salt and pepper both sides of steaks.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients, and brush onto steaks.
  3. Allow to marinate for at least 1/2 an hour.
  4. Heat a small amount of olive oil over fairly high heat, until just about smoking, fry steaks very quickly on each side, just enough for it to lose the pink--don't worry if it isn't cooked completely through--it will be after the next step.
  5. Remove any burned garlic.
  6. Transfer steaks to a shallow pot and cover.
  7. With the juices remaining in the pan, add a little white wine and reduce just a bit and pour over steaks.
  8. Heat through.
  9. The steam from the sauce will have cooked the steaks through.
  10. Serve with crusty french bread and garlic mayo.
  11. These can be made into sandwiches too!
