Servings: 4
Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
Recipe by: Frankie


1 1/2 lbs top sirloin sliced thin
1 cup soy sauce
2 cloves of garlic, minced
4 TBSP lemon juice
1 large onion sliced into rings
2 TBSP cooking oil
10 oz frozen broccoli florets
cooked rice for serving(about 3 cups cooked, 1 cup uncooked)


1. Marinate the sliced beef in a mixture of the soy sauce, lemon juice and garlic for 1 hour covered in the refrigerator.

2. Heat 1 TBSP of the oil in a large skillet over high heat. Fry the onions until just beginning to brown, remove the onions from the pan and set aside.

3. Add the remaining 1 TBSP of oil to the pan. Drain the sliced beef from the marinade (make sure you save the marinade) and fry the beef until browned on both sides. When beef is browned pour in the reserved marinade and bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium and simmer 10 minutes. Stir in the frozen broccoli and turn heat up to medium-high. Simmer until broccoli is heated through, about 5 minutes. Take off the heat and top with the onions. Serve over rice.

Notes & Tips

Bistek Tagalog traditionally isn't made with broccoli and uses calamansi juice, instead of lemon juice, which is a citrus fruit similar to lemon.
