Bistek Tagalog “Filipino Beefsteak” is very popular in the Philippines. Especially on some special occasions, some people make this on daily basis.  However, when I was growing up I eat Bistek Tagalog only on some occasions.  That is because buying beef is pretty expensive, so we don’t often eat meat back when I was living in the Philippines.

Bistek Tagalog “Filipino Beefsteak” is the Filipino version of the Beefsteak that I am sure you all are familiar of.  It is comprised of thinly sliced beef cooked in soy sauce and lemon juice, garnished with caramelized onion rings. Some people have their way of cooking this recipe.  I have seen and taste different version of Beefsteak before and they are both delicious.  However, the ingredients was different, I have seen people add boiled eggs after this is cooked and also sprinkle green onions on the top.

Today I am happy to share you this recipe from one of the Filipina I have meet online through Facebook group.  It’s nice to collaborate with other cooked out there so I can share you all new recipe each week.  Thank you One Love One Kitchen for this guest post.  I hope that you all enjoy this recipe, it doesn’t require a lot of ingredients. However, I can assure you that this is very delicious and definitely worth cooking.

Remember that when cooking beef you don’t have to put your heat into high.  Always cook it in medium to avoid making the beef difficult to eat. Maintaining it into medium heat make make your meat very tender.

  4. Put-in the garlic then saute for a few minutes
  5. Pour the marinade and bring to a boil.

Recipe Notes

Marinating the beef overnight or even for an hour can make a big difference on the taste.   Preparing the other ingredients doesn't take but 15 minutes at all.  So if you want this to be eaten at dinner time I suggest preparing this during lunch time.

  1. To be honest when my husband and I were backpacking for a month in the PH in 2011 we didnt like the Philippino cuisine. But I have now more and more philppinos friends and they introduce me to new dishes all the time and I love them! This recipe is new to me though, I have send the recipe to them so they can cook it next time!😂

  2. Thanks for this recipe! When I make curries at home I always marinate it makes a real difference to texture and flavor
