Round Steak in Criolla Sauce is perfect to have as a cold appetizer or a light dinner.
Round Steak is also known as Rump Steak in other countries. It refers to the cut of beef that includes the top of round, bottom round, and eye of round. This nice cut has no marbled fats; this can be a good thing to those who are in a low fat diet. However, the lack of fat makes this cut of beef dry-out when broiled or grilled. The most recommended cooking methods for this cut are the ones that require the use of liquid such as braising, stewing, and mixing with Criolla Sauce.
I enjoy eating this dish for many reasons. Round steak is flavorful. A tender round steak is enough to make my taste buds go wild. I also enjoy the criolla sauce. It is full of wonderful flavors and nice colors. When criolla sauce is combined with thinly sliced round steak, it becomes a complete work of art.
This dish is meant to be served cold. Refrigerating for at least 4 hours will do, but I prefer placing it in the fridge overnight.
