Beef Steak - Pinoy Style

Updated on June 13, 2009


· 1/2 lb. beef sirloin (or beef tenderloin steaks), cut into thin strips

· 2 tbsp. calamansi concentrate

· 2 tbsp. soy sauce

· 1 tsp. salt

· 1 tsp. pepper

· 3 tbsp. oil

· 1 onion, cut into rings

Procedures :

1. Slice beef across the grain. Cut into 2 inches length.

2. Marinate meat in calamansi, soy sauce, salt and pepper (by smelling the aroma of the marinated beef, you'll know it is well seasoned or not; adjust or correct the seasoning according to your style and liking). Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

3. Pan fry onion rings in hot oil. Cook until onions are soft and translucent. Set aside.

4. In the same pan, stir-fry beef until cooked and tender. Transfer to a serving platter. Garnish with onion rings and serve.

      All of our lovely semi-Pinoy daughters have friends who think the girls are the best cooks in the world because they've introduced them to food such as bistek, lumpia, adobo and pancit. It's funny watching a non-Filipino family debating back and forth the finer points of cooking bistek that they learned from one of our girls.

      i guess lemon has greater acidity than kalamansi...

      so just a lil bit as alternate...

      naaah it only depends on your taste when cooking.. :P

      there is no definite time in frying the beef because some cuts are thicker compared to others. so my advice is to fry the beef according to your taste.. what I mean is to try it every now and then if the tenderness is ok with you or not.. :)
