Filipino-style Beef Steak (Bistek) Recipe

Ingredients :

    • 11/2 lbs (750 g) beef sirloin or skirt steak, cut into thin fillets
    • 2 tablespoons kalamansi lime juice or lemon juice
    • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
    • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
    • 3 tablespoons oil
    • 1 medium onion, sliced into rings
    • Salt to taste

Method :

    1. Marinate the beef slices in the kalamansi lime juice, soy sauce and pepper overnight in the refrigerator.
    2. Heat the oil in a skillet and pan-fry the beef until medium-rare, about 30 seconds on each side. Transfer the beef slices to a plate.
    3. In the remaining oil, stir-fry the onion until it is browned. Season the beef with a sprinkling of salt and drizzle a little of the pan juice over the steak. Garnish with the onion slices and serve.
