Cube Steak in Tomato Sauce

This is a quick and easy recipe that you will find in a lot of Puerto Rican homes.

My mom always made this for me, and I love it with Tostones (green plantain)on the side. The sauce is delicious and the steaks come out so soft like butter. Marinating them with vinegar, onion, peppers and seasoning a few hours ahead, or even a day before is the best way to make them.  You will love this recipe, and don’t forget the tostones!


2 pounds cube steak

2 tbsp of olive oil

¼ cup white vinegar

1 tbsp of sofrito

1-2 garlic cloves

1 can of tomato sauce
