Ingredients

2 ribeye steaks

Salt & Pepper

3 cloves garlic

10 Chile piquin

1 tbsp jugo maggi

1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

1 juiced orange,

¾ cups lime juice

1 cup soy sauce

2 tbsp olive + more for frying

1 red onion, thinly sliced

2 serrano peppers, thinly sliced

4 shallots thinly sliced

avocado for serving

cilantro for serving

Directions

Step 1

To start, prepare the aguachile sauce,

Step 2

Add enough olive oil to a frying pan, about 1 cup, set to medium heat, once hot, add in the garlic and fry until golden brown all over.

2 tbsp olive + more for frying

3 cloves garlic

Step 3

Add the garlic with a little bit of salt to a mortar and pestle, start mashing into a paste.

Step 4

Add in the Chile piquin and continue mashing.

10 Chile piquin

Step 5

Add in the Jugo Maggi and the Worcestershire sauce(if you can't get Jugo Maggi, double up on the Worcestershire sauce), mix it until combined.

1 tbsp jugo maggi

1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

Step 6

In a larger bowl, add the orange juice, lime juice, soy sauce, the garlic mixture, the thinly sliced red onion and Serranos and 2 tbsp of olive oil(use the same oil you used to fry the garlic in). Mix to combine and set aside while we prepare the rest.

1 juiced orange,

¾ cups lime juice

1 cup soy sauce

1 red onion, thinly sliced

2 serrano peppers, thinly sliced

2 tbsp olive + more for frying

Step 7

To the same oil where we fried the garlic, add in the thinly sliced shallots and and fry them on a medium high heat until they start getting golden brown and crispy. This can take anywhere from 6-12 minutes, it all depends on how big/small your skillet is. Once starting to get golden, work quickly to drain and place them on paper towels to drain off the excess oil. Season with salt and set aside.

Step 8

Season the ribeye steaks generously with salt and pepper on both sides.

2 ribeye steaks

Salt & Pepper

Step 9

Get a cast iron pan, grill pan, or using your outdoor grill, spray either with a bit of oil, once hot, cook the steak to your desired liking. I prefer my steak more on the medium rare side, so I only cook mine for 2-3 minutes per side. Once cooked, set on a cutting board and let rest for 7-10 minutes before slicing.

Step 10

Once the steak has rested, sliced it up into 1/2 inch strips.

Step 11

To serve, place the steak on a large plate, and top it off with about 1 cup of the aguachile sauce, making sure to get some of the red onion and Serrano.

Step 12

Then top it off with some thinly sliced avocado, the crispy shallots and chopped cilantro for garnish.
