Yummy Beef Steak

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!


  • 500g rib eye steak/beef sirloin, thinly sliced
  • 1 large white onion, sliced in rings
  • 5-10 pcs small Calamansi, (squeeze the juice)
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoon sugar
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup water


Preparing the spices


Season beef with salt to taste. Using a non stick pan, add little oil. Fry or grill the steak over high-medium heat until brown on both side. Drain from oil and transfer into a plate lined with paper towels.


In another pan, add soy sauce, and add fried beef. Season with some ground pepper and add half of the onion rings.(I don’t like a greasy beef steak, so I used a new pan).


Let it simmer over low heat and let the beef absorb the soy sauce for about 3 to 5 minutes.(quick way to make your beef taste good even without marination process).


Pour in 1 cup of water and continue to simmer for about 5-10 minutes. Add juiced calamansi and continue to simmer until beef is cooked through.


Season with salt and sugar to taste, and add the 2nd half of onion rings. Cover pot.


Turn off heat. Serve and enjoy!

Serve hot with rice. Enjoy!
