Mexican Steak Torta

Sarah Waltrip

"This is a Mexican sandwich filled with char grilled steak, beans, avocado, lettuce and tomato all served up on a warm toasted roll. Growing up in Southern California this has become a family favorite. If cotija cheese is not available, use cheddar. Serve warm with Spanish rice."

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate. Season steak with garlic salt, black pepper, cumin, and cayenne pepper.
  2. Grill steak on the preheated grill until medium-rare, about 5 minutes per side. Remove from heat to a cutting board and cover with foil.
  3. Set a large skillet over medium-high heat. Spread both halves of each roll with mayonnaise. Brown the rolls, mayonnaise-side down until golden, about 3 minutes. Warm the refried bean in a bowl in the microwave, about 1 minute on High, and slice the sirloin steak into thin strips.
  4. Spread a thin layer of beans on the bottom half of each roll, layer with steak, avocado, tomato, and lettuce. Top with cheese, if desired, and close the sandwich with the top of the roll.

Sounds great as is. I plan to make it this weekend. Just to cut a little fat I think I will brush the rolls with olive oil and grill them after I take the steak off. We love grilled bread and no...

Good recipe. I think it needs a touch of garlic so I lightly dusted the steaks with garlic powder, and used a touch of salsa instead of the cheese.

These were delicious. I was skeptical about frying a roll with mayo on it and I nearly skipped that step but I am glad I didn't...the warm toasted creaminess = yum! I have since toasted bread/...

This was absolutely delicious. The only change I made was to add Chorizo but that was only because I had one in the fridge I had to use! Frying the bread was a simple addition but I think it re...

After living in Texas for over 13 years I know Torta's and tacos well! These were amazing, my family devoured them! The second time I made them I changed the recipe a bit. Both ways were great. ...

Excellent! Taste like our favorite taco truck.

These turned out great! I used torta bread from Costco. I also added pico de gallo. Delicious and came close to the amazing Tortas in Mexico.
