Filipino Beef Steak or Bistek tagalog is one of my favorite pinoy dish (ulam). This recipe is simple, easy, affordable (murang ulam) and delicious ala Mama’s Guide Recipes. Happy cooking!
- 1kg beef sirloin, thinly sliced
- 100 ml cooking oil
- 2 pcs white onions, sliced in rings
- 2-5 pcs small Calamansi, (squeeze the juice)
- 1 cup soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- Salt and pepper
Preparing the spices
Marinate beef sirloin in calamansi juice, soy sauce and pepper for 30 minutes or more. The longer the better it tastes! Set aside or place it in fridge.
After marinating, reserve marinade and separate beef into another bowl. Set aside. Heat pan using medium heat and pour cooking oil. Fry beef sirloin until it turns slightly brownish in color. Remove extra oil, so it won’t be oily.
Pour marinade sauce and simmer for a few more minutes until beefbecomes tender.
Add onion slices and a little bit of salt and a teaspoon of sugar to add taste and turn off heat. Garnish with spring onions. Serve and enjoy!
Serve hot with rice. Enjoy!
