Compiled Recipe – Bistek Filipino Rice

Bistek Filipino Rice

*750 grams beef sirloin, sliced thinly and pounded
* ¼ cup soy sauce
* 2 tbsp calamansi juice, or juice from 1 lemon
* ½ tsp ground black pepper
* 2 cups vegetable oil
* 1 cup white onion, sliced into rings
* 2 tbsp cornstarch
* ¼ cup butter
* 1 tbsp garlic, crushed
* cilantro, chopped (to garnish)
* 3 cups white rice, cooked and cooled
* 1 tbsp vegetable oil
* 2 tbsp garlic, minced
* 1 tsp salt
* ½ tsp ground black pepper
* 3 tbsp butter

1) Marinate beef in soy sauce, calamansi juice and pepper, covered, in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

2) Heat vegetable oil in a pan over medium heat. Toss onions in a cornstarch until well coated. Fry onion rings until crisp and golden. Drain on paper towels and set aside.

3) Melt butter in a large pan over medium heat. Fry beef until browned. Add garlic and sauté for 15 to 20 minutes. Set aside and keep warm.

4) Make the bistek rice: Mix rice and oil in a bowl. Add rice to the pan where the beef was cooked; toss until heated through. Add garlic, salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring continuously to prevent rice from sticking to the pan. Remove from heat and mix in butter.

5) Divide rice among bowls. Top with beef and onions. Garnish with cilantro.
