This is a Colombian dish that my Mother-in-law taught me. Her version is a little different, but I changed it to suit my busy family's lifestyle. Make rice and serve the gravy on top. It's delicious!

This was ok. I like the idea but it needs a bit more flavor. I'm not very good at this kind of thing but maybe some cumin & chile powder to spice it up a bit. Any suggestions anyone? I would like to try it again. Read More

I have made this several times in my pressure cooker. Any meat cooked in the pressure cooker is tender - and this is a nice blend of potatoes/onions with a sauce. The sauce is thin - but is really good on rice. Read More

You can also cook the flank and after it is tender put in the oven for 20 minutes. I just want to add that the real name of this is Sobrebarriga (with B and all together) Read More

My son made this for his Spanish class project & it was the definite hit of the class!!! Everyone raved about how good it was! We don't have a pressure cooker & were making too much to go in the slow cooker so we browned the meat & put everything in a pot on top of the stove & cooked it on low (after bringing it to a boil first) for about 3 hours. Sooooo delicious!! We'll be making this for our own family! Read More

This was very good. I tried lowing the sodium by eliminating the salt but it is too bland without it. So I would not reccomend skipping the salt. When I added a touch it was wonderful. I do not have a pressure cooker so I used my slow cooker. I browned the meat and then threw everything in and cooked it for 4 hours. I used a can of busweiser and may try a darker beer next time to see how that goes. I served it with brown rice because that was all I had on hand. Yummy dish. Thank you! Read More

The flavor was great! I used cooking onion since I didn't have red. I used bouillion since I didn't have beef broth. The flank steak fell apart but still needed to be cut across the grain to make it more chewable. I would certainly make again. Read More
