Mexican Round Eye Steaks

Round eye steaks are a nice cut of meat. They are petite and carry a lot of flavor. When seasoned just right you can get the taste of a fiesta in one bite!

Serves 4-6
Full time 20-30 minutes

You will need:

6 boneless round eye steaks
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 tbsp lime juice or 1 lime
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp salt

Let us begin:

In a heavy bottom sauté pan or cast iron pan heat olive oil over medium-high heat.

Preheat oven to 350'.

While this heats mix all spices to create a spice blend.

Pat round eyes dry with a paper towel. Sprinkle seasoning mix across both sides of round eyes, you may not need it all, that is okay.

Once pan is hot, add half the round eyes into the pan and lightly brown for 3-4 minutes on each side.

Remove from pan to holding plate, allow pan to heat back up for a moment.

If needed add a touch more oil to pan, place in remaining round eyes and repeat process.

Once all are nicely browned you going to add them all into the pan, slightly over lapping them around the outside edge.

Squeeze lime over top and place into center of pan, if not using a lime add lime juice to pan.

Move pan to oven and cook 5-8 minutes or until nicely finished off. 

Remove from oven and remove to serving platter.

Serve and enjoy!
