Beef Steak Recipe

Marinade Sauce in 2 Minutes

  1. After you cleaned the beef, put it in a bowl.
  2. Mix soy sauce, calamansi juice, garlic, and black pepper with the beef
  3. Marinade for at least 1 hour. Hint: You can do other things you need to do and just go back to cooking after an hour or so.

Cook in 47 Minutes

  1. Add the onions into pre-heated cooking pot with cooking oil and cook for 2-3 minutes or until rings separate naturally.
  2. Remove the onions and set aside.
  3. Put the beef on a strainer, wait a few seconds to let the marinade sauce drain back into marinading bowl to set aside.
  4. Sauté beef in garlic for 10 minutes or until beef is evenly browned.
  5. Now, add the marinade sauce you've set aside from procedure #3.
  6. Mix all ingredients in cooking pot, put the lid on, and let it boil. (It should boil within 5 minutes since you only used enough soy sauce to marinade the beef and did not add water.)
  7. As soon as it boils, lower the heat to simmer for 30 minutes or until beef is tender.
  8. Once beef is tender, you can trun off the heat and serve your Beef Steak while hot with rice. I hope you enjoy it!
