Welcome to my very first Filipino Food Friday! I've been thinking about making this a regular post. I have a great love with cooking and foods, Filipino foods particularly. So I thought I'd share my favorite Filipino food recipes, recipes that I aced making them.
Today I'll show you how to make 'Bistek Tagalog', the Filipino version of beef steak, one of my favorites. It is basically thinly sliced marinated beef cooked somewhat adobo-style, with caramelized onions. Growing up, as a kid, I really can't tell what's the difference between Bistek Tagalog and Pork Adobo. They are both cooked with soy sauce. The only difference probably is the other one has onions... Well, they are totally different meal, but sure both are delicious!
Going on, you need a pound of beef sirloin thinly sliced, marinated in soy sauce, black pepper and lemon juice for at least 2 hours.
Heat the cooking oil in a pan, I highly suggest cast iron (it cooks better) in medium heat, fry onion sliced in rings until soft. Set aside.
In the same pan, fry the marinated beef until brown. Set aside.
Fry minced garlic in the same pan as well.
