Ingredients

  • 500 grams Beef Striploin, thinly sliced
  • 72 grams (4 tbsp) Oyster Sauce 
  • 54 grams (3 tbsp) Soy Sauce 
  • 8 pcs Calamansi or 2 Lemons, juiced (about 60ml)
  • Ground Black Pepper (to taste)
  • 35 grams (2 tbsp) Fish Sauce or to taste
  • 5 cloves Garlic, minced 
  • 4 pcs Red or Yellow Onions, sliced into rings
  • 54 grams (3 tbsp) Cooking Oil 
  • 237ml (1/2 cup) Water or as needed

Method

In a large bowl, combine beef, oyster sauce, soy sauce, calamansi juice, pepper and minced garlic. Massage and marinate for at least 1 hour. Note: marinate overnight for best result.

2

In a pan over medium-high heat, heat oil. Sauté onions and garlic, remove and set aside.

3

Remove the beef from the marinade, squeezing out the excess liquid. Cook the beef for 1 to 4 minutes each side or until lightly browned.

4

Add the marinade sauce and water then bring it to a boil.

5

Cover and simmer it over low heat until meat is fork-tender and sauce is reduced. Season with fish sauce and pepper to taste.

6

Turn off the cooker and top it with onion rings. Cover to allow onions to cook slightly in the steam.

7

Serve while it’s hot with rice and enjoy!
