The Technique

Mexican Beef Milanesa Tortas

Mexican Beef Milanesa made with beef chuck shoulder steaks may be layered with an array of familiar ingredients over homemade Buttermilk Bolillo rolls for a delicious classic torta. A quick crema may be replicated by draining off a little sour cream to create a thicker consistency to the popular condiment that offers tasty twang to the sandwiches. Spread the sour cream over the bottom halves of the bread then sprinkle with a smattering of kosher salt. Proceed with preparing the sandwiches as instructed. Conversely, look for traditional crema in the dairy case at your local market. Learn how to make Mexican Beef Milanesa Tortas that are perfect to serve anytime.
