Bifes de Cebolada!

Bifes de Cebolada

Here's a Portuguese dish that is very well known.

It's filling and it will make it seem like you've been cooking all day when you haven't.  Plus, you know when you're Portuguese, it's all about the "molho" (gravy) right?

Bifes de Cebolada - Portuguese Peppered Steak

Round Eye Steak (you can also use just any kind as long as it's not too thin)
1 medium onion, sliced
1 green pepper, sliced
2 medium tomatoes, sliced
1 small can tomato sauce
olive oil
salt and pepper
crushed garlic
paprika
bay leaf


Slice the onion, pepper and tomatoes. If you're using round eye steak you don't need to cut it or trim it.

If you're using any other type of steak, you may want to trim off some of the fat and cut the steaks in half.

Pour a little olive oil in a big skillet, layer the steak, onions, green pepper and tomatoes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, 1 tsp. crushed garlic and paprika.

Drizzle with more olive oil and repeat layers. Pour the can of tomato sauce over the steaks.

Cook on medium heat until steaks are done. You will need to keep an eye on it and add a little bit of water every few minutes so it doesn't burn and dry out. You want a good gravy when it's done.

Serve over rice, mashed potatoes or fries.

  3. Is this the recipe that you switch out the beef for pork for the pork chops in tomato sauce?

    1. Hi Jennifer, yes it is, I just left the green pepper out of the pork chops because I was out of peppers and it was right before grocery shopping, but follow the same recipe :)
