How To Make Beef Steak

This beef steak is a Filipino dish that uses strips of beef cooked in a savory and tangy combination of soy sauce and lemon juice.

Prep: 15 mins
Refrigerate: 1 hr
Cook: 20 mins
Total: 1 hr 35 mins


  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp white sugar
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste
  • 4 lb New York strip steak, sliced thin
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped


  1. Whisk the lemon juice, soy sauce, sugar, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl.

  2. Place the sliced steak in a large bowl; pour the lemon juice mixture over the steak and toss to coat. Sprinkle with the cornstarch and lightly mix.

  3. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour, up to overnight.

  4. Heat ¼ cup of vegetable oil in a large skillet. Remove the beef slices from the marinade, shaking to remove any excess liquid.

  5. Fry the beef slices in batches in the hot oil for about 2 to 4 minutes per side, until they start to firm, and are reddish-pink and juicy in the center. Remove the beef slices from the skillet and set aside on a serving platter.

  6. Heat the olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir the onion and garlic in the hot oil for 5 to 7 minutes, until the onion is golden brown.

  7. Pour over the beef slices, serve warm, and enjoy!
