Spicy Tomato Steak Recipe

My family loves this spicy tomato dish. I came up with the recipe about 25 years ago, after eating a similar dish on vacation in New Mexico. I came home and tried to duplicate it from memory, with delicious results!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Cook: 45 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound beef round steak, trimmed and cut into 1/4-inch strips
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 medium tomatoes, peeled, seeded and cut into wedges
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 cans (4 ounces each) chopped green chilies
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil


  • 1. In a large resealable bag, combine the vinegar, salt and pepper. Add the beef; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

"Fantastic flavor and the whole family loves it. Been making this recipe for years. I add 2/3 cup of water to the recipe and make it in the pressure cooker for even quicker meals and it has more "sauce"."

"Very tasty and a little bit different from most stovetop beef steak recipes. My DH likes this served with lots of flour tortillas."
