BISTEK (Beef Steak)

Another request from one of my Youtube Family. My Version!
Bistek is a Philippine dish typically made with onions and strips of sirloin beef slowly cooked in soy sauce, and calamansi juice. It is best prepared by marinating the meat first in the mixture of soy sauce or calamansi juice. The meat is then browned in vegetable oil (usually coconut oil) and the marinade added back in when the meat has seared. Onion rings are optionally added near the end as a garnish. A good bistek is one which does not taste too sour or salty. The word “bistek” is derived from the Spanish word Bistec or Beef Steak.


* about 800 g Beef
* 2 pcs. Lemon for juice
* 1 onion for onion rings
* some Soy sauce
* some Garlic, peeled and crushed
