When pan frying, just a small amount of oil is necessary to yield crisp & flavorful beef chuck shoulder steaks that may be used for main dishes or classic Mexican tortas. Dredging them in a bit of flour first not only allows other ingredients to adhere which in turn creates the crunchy exterior but it offers a carrier for spices. These spices stick to the beef better & all around the entire surface.
