Filipino Beef Steak (Bistek)

Filipino Beef Steak (Bistek)

Bistek is the Filipino beef steak dish. It’s usually a lean cut of beef, marinated in Calamansi (a tropical citrus fruit) juice and soy sauce, pan fried and the marinade added at the end.

This Pinoy beef steak dish is made with onions cut into rings. The sauce is a little oily and tangy. I substitute lemon juice since calamansi juice is not readily available here. I also use olive oil which is healthier instead of the regular cooking oil because the oil is actually going to be a part of the sauce.

    I’m American, from the South. I love Indian cuisine am cuorius to explore. I like the presentation very much EXCEPT, I need to know the proportions of incredients: how MUCH Fenugreek!!??? How much cinnamon?? I often cook recipes of my own counry/region without measuring: this comes from initial training from mother and grandmother and years of practice. However, with your cuisine, I am a beginner. I like the recipe videos because they allow me to see and feel how to cook the dish. Thank you.
