An ethnic serving of beef
You’ll find this flavorful dish on the menu at authentic Filipino restaurants or you can find it served for lunch and dinner by traditional Filipino families. Filipino bistek evolved in the Philippines from when that country was ruled by the Spain; in fact, there’s a similarly named “Latino Bistec,” which is a different dish that’s popular in Latin American cuisine. This dish is just one of the national dishes of the Philippines. The recipe has an Asian twist with the inclusion of soy sauce in the list of ingredients. Always look for the sautéed onion rings over well cooked and marinated pieces of steak that are hallmark characteristics of this yummy dish.
