Bistek (Beefsteak Pilipino)


1 pound round steak, thinly sliced 1/8 to 1/4"-

1 big white onion, sliced crosswise 1/4"
1/2  cup soy sauce
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4  cup oil


Mix the fresh lemon juice, soy sauce, oil, and 1 teaspoon freshly grated black pepper to make marinade. 

Pound the beef steaks with a food mallet on a sturdy clean surface to make the steaks thinner and tender when cooking.  Cut the steaks into serving pieces. Dip each piece of steak on the marinade and keep them in a bowl for about 15 minutes.

Heat a big pan to high and add the remaining 1/4 oil.  Fry the white onions in batches but not to overcook them. 

Heat a pan (iron pan is best).  When very hot, pour the oil and cook steaks for about 2 minutes on each side.  Set aside on a serving dish or a big bowl.  Cook all the beef steaks.
