INSTRUCTIONS FOR APORREADILLO CON SALSA VERDE (SHREDDED STEAK & EGGS WITH GREEN SALSA)

  1. Cut 1 onion in half. Chop remaining onion; set onion aside. Heat 1-1/2 teaspoons oil in stockpot over medium heat until hot. Place beef steak in stockpot; brown evenly.
  2. Add onion halves, broth and 1 clove minced garlic to stockpot. Season with salt, as desired; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover tightly and simmer 2-1/4 to 2-3/4 hours or until steak is fork-tender.
