Hmmm... in a few hours, all people are going to have their lunch. Whether you are in the office, at school, in the mall or even staying at home, you can't get away with lunch. But of course before eating your lunch, somebody has to prepare for it, right?

If you are in a tight budget and still don't know what to cook for today's lunch, well you have come to the right place. I have the perfect recipe for you and your family that you can enjoy this lunch or perhaps later at dinner. Hehehe. The Filipino-style beef steak or Pinoy beef steak recipe is up next. So better get your pen and pencil ready or learn to hit the Ctrl+P button for printing this self-made delicious recipe! :) Happy cooking and happy eating!


1/2 kilo beef, sliced and pounded
soy sauce or toyo
1 big kalamansi, juiced
1/2 tsp sugar
ground pepper
small onion, minced
medium-sized potato, cut into paper-thin circles
medium-sized onion, cut into rings
cooking oil for frying
1 tablespoon cornstarch

How to Cook:

1) Clean the beef first before pounding it. You can use a meat pounder or the back of a knife for tenderizing the meat. Sliced them into strips.

2) In a bowl, mix the soy sauce, kalamansi juice, dash of pepper, pinch of salt, 1/2 tsp of sugar and minced onion. Put the tendered meat afterwards and marinate it for 1 hour.

3) Prepare the cooking oil for frying. Drain the marinade first before frying. Stir fry the beef strips until golden brown or desired cook (half-cooked, medium rare or cooked). It is natural for the meat to extract some juices. Let it dry while cooking until the meat is cooked.

4) When the meat is cooked, remove it from the frying pan and set them aside. Put the sliced potatoes into the frying pan until the side of the potatoes turned brown. Put the onion rings afterwards.

5) When the onion rings slightly turned transparent, put the meat back into the frying pan with onions and potatoes. Turn the heat up. Dissolve a tablespoon of cornstarch in the marinade sauce and put it into the heating frying pan. Stir and let it simmer for a few minutes or until the sauce thickens. Don't forget to turn off the heat.

:: Makes 5-6 servings. Serve hot with steaming rice. Yum-yum!
