Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk the lemon juice, soy sauce, sugar, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl. Place the sliced steak in a large bowl; pour the lemon juice mixture over the steak and toss to coat. Sprinkle with the cornstarch and lightly mix. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour, up to overnight.

  • Heat 1/4 cup vegetable oil in a large skillet. Remove the beef slices from the marinade, shaking to remove any excess liquid. Fry the beef slices in batches in the hot oil until they start to firm, and are reddish-pink and juicy in the center, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Remove the beef slices from the skillet and set aside on a serving platter.

  • Heat the olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir the onion and garlic in the hot oil until the onion is golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes; pour over the beef slices.

This was very good! It was very easy to prepare, and all of the engredients I had on hand.. made it even better. I sliced my steaks paper thin while they are partially frozen so it's easier to slice. Read More

Great recipe but found that calamansi juice works best to achieve that true Filipino taste. You can find it frozen in packets at most Asian stores. Taste the marinade beforehand add juice if it's too salty and soy sauce if it's too sour. Cook marinade for a few minutes afterward if u want sauce to pour over some garlic rice..the perfect complement to this classic dish. Read More

This was incredibly easy to make and for such a simple dish it was surprisingly flavorful. Served with a salad on the side it made for a quick meal that satisfied both me and my husband. Just don't forget that it needs to marinate for at least an hour before cooking! I made the marinade and got the marinated meat into the fridge and chopped up my onions. Then when it was time to cook all I had to do was throw everything into the two skillets and dinner was ready in five minutes. As written you'll end up with too little marinade. I made it with just one pound of meat but forgot to scale back the onions. It was still really tasty but I'll adjust the meat-to-onion ratio a bit better next time. Read More

You need a lot more marinade than is called for considering it also calls for 4 lbs of meat but it is a great recipe. This also works really well with sliced up pork butt. Read More
