Bistek Tagalog Recipe

Bistek Tagalog Recipe

Bistek Tagalog Recipe or simply “Bistek” is not really a rip-off of the popular Western dish beef steak. It is prepared and cooked differently.




  1. Marinate Beef or Pork in soy sauce, lemon (or calamansi), and ground black pepper for at least 1 hour
  2. Heat the cooking oil in a pan then stir-fry the onion rings until the texture becomes soft.
  3. Set aside
  4. In the same pan where the onions were fried, fry the marinated Beef or Pork (without the marinade) until color turns brown. Set aside
  5. Put-in the garlic then saute for a few minutes
  6. Pour the marinade and bring to a boil.
  7. Put in the fried beef and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until meat is tender.
  8. Add water as needed.
  9. Add the stir-fried onions and some salt to taste.
