Jalisco-style Pork Steak

James Carrier

Notes: Don't be concerned if the frying pan looks a bit small; when the meat hits the heat, it shrinks almost at once.

Ingredients

  • 1 pork tenderloin (3/4 to 1 lb.)
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • About 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons olive or salad oil
  • Lime wedges

Preparation

  1. 1. Rinse pork; trim and discard any fat. Place meat between sheets of plastic wrap. With a flat mallet, pound until meat is an even 1/4 inch thick.
  2. 2. In a small bowl, mix paprika, vinegar, garlic, cumin, oregano, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Uncover meat and rub seasoning mixture evenly over both sides.
  3. 3. Add enough oil to a 10- to 12-inch frying pan over high heat to coat pan bottom when swirled. When pan is hot, add meat and cook until edges turn white, about 2 minutes. Turn meat and brown other side, about 2 minutes. Continue to turn for even color until pork is no longer pink in the center (cut to test), about 8 minutes total. Cut into serving pieces. Add salt and lime juice to taste.
