Danny didn’t leave me a URL or an e-mail address but this is one version of bistek I just might try:
Here’s an easy one for you to cook bistek(beef steak).
Buy beef, 7 bone or flank whichever is on sale. Cut them into thin slices including the fatty portions. Boil the beef until tender by adding more water if needed. When its tender, add garlic ,bay leaf and onion and toyomansi(bottled soy sauce mixed w/calamansi), available in Oriental stores. Simmer for 10 mins. add a lttle bit of cooking oil.
Add pepper to taste if needed.
Slice one whole onion and add to bistek before serving.
