Beefy beef steak

Beefy beefsteak blended with a brigade of sweet onions sitting beside boiled bright white rice!

Level: Easy


Beef, white onions, ground pepper, sugar, soy sauce, lime, garlic, vinegar, vegtable oil, all-purpose flour or cornstarch, cooked white jasmine rice.


Everytime I cook, except for baked goods, I always apply the "tancha-tancha" (approximation) strategy in measuring the ingredients I use so you may notice that I use alot of "about" in my post. For this particular dish, I used about 300grams of lean beef from the "talaat" (local market) and I was lucky that the meat they sold me was tender :). I haven't really mastered (or just too lazy to memorize) the names of beef-parts appropriate for this kind or that kind of dish.

*Slice beef into thin pieces that look like flattened spoons then mix it in a bowl with about half a cup of soy sauce, 1 teaspoon ground black pepper, 2 tablespoons of sugar, 1 tablespoon vinegar, 3 tablespoons of lime juice, and about 2 tablespoons of minced garlic.

*Set aside for about 30 minutes.

*Heat a pan (frying pan, wok, caserole, long as it can contain all the ingredients that you will put in) with about 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in it then fry the marinated beef pieces until they turn brown.

*Add in what's left of the marinade, a cup of water, 1 tablespoon of all-purpose flour diluted in 2 tablespoons of water.

*Cover and reduce fire or heat (whatever you're cooking on-fire, coal, electric or gas stove:).

*Simmer for about 30 minutes or until beef is tender.

*Garnish with white onion rings before serving with cooked rice (of course!)
