This was very good! It was very easy to prepare, and all of the ingredients I had on hand.. made it even better. I sliced my steaks paper thin while they are partially frozen so it’s easier to slice. Great recipe, but found that calamansi juice works best to achieve that true Filipino taste. You can find it frozen in packets at most Asian stores. Taste the marinade beforehand, add juice if it’s too salty, and soy sauce if it’s too sour. Cook marinade for a few minutes afterward if u want sauce to pour over some garlic rice the perfect complement to this classic dish.
- 1 lb. beef sirloin, thinly sliced
- ¼ cup soy sauce
- 1 piece lemon or 3 pieces calamansi
- ½ tsp ground black pepper
- 3 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1 large onion, sliced into rings
- 3 tbsp cooking oil
- salt to taste
- Marinate beef in soy sauce, lemon (or calamansi), and ground black pepper for at least 1 hour
- Heat the cooking oil in a pan then stir fry the onion rings until the texture becomes soft. Set aside
- In the same pan where the onions were fried, fry the marinated beef (without the marinade) until color turns brown. Set aside
- Put-in the garlic then saute for a few minutes
- Pour the marinade and bring to a boil.
- Put in the fried beef and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until meat is tender. Add water as needed.
- Add the stir-fried onions and some salt to taste.
- Serve hot. Share and Enjoy!
