Brazilians love beef and these small cuts of sirloin are served at lot as appetizers in bars all over the country. "Filezinho" usually comes with french bread or toast and fries. It can be made with different seasonings and cheese toppings.
Below is a very simple and easy recipe to enjoy at home.

In a large skillet over medium heat fry onion in butter until soft.

In the place of cachaça use any kind of liquor you want or have at home: cognac, whisky, rum, etc.
