Mix all the adobo ingredients and set aside. Slice the piece of beef in 3 to 4 pieces against the grain and pound thin. Season generously with the adobo, mashed garlic, some onion slices, olive oil and marinate overnight in the refrigerator. In a large skillet places 2 teaspoons of olive oil and heat until it reaches its smoke point, lightly brown the beef pieces and set aside. Add the onions, caramelize lightly or dark depending on personal preference, once color has been obtained from the onions add the vinegar, stock and butter. Let all the butter melt and incorporate with the rest of the ingredients in the skillet and cover with a tight lid. Cook until tender and juicy (approximately 1 minute). To serve, arrange alternate layers of beef and onions over the green beans and top with the allumette fries. Some of the remaining liquid on the skillet can be poured as a thin sauce.
