Pressed for time? This is another easy, go to recipe! Great for your kid’s school lunch boxes, easy to whip up when you have “surprise” visits at your home as well 😉
Step 1: Bring thinly sliced sirloin to room temperature. Set aside as you prepare the marinade.
Step 2: In a bowl, combine the 2 soy sauces, calamansi, pepper and olive oil and stir to combine. I like to mix all my marinades in a separate bowl before adding it to any meat mixture.
Using a mortar and pestle, pound 7 cloves of garlic. I added a little rock salt to help pulverize it.
Step 4: Pour marinade over beef and mix well. I marinated this for about 2 hours.
Step 5: Slice onions into rings and pan fry until golden. Set aside.
Step 6: Heat olive oil in a pan and add onions. I seasoned them lightly with salt and pepper. Keep the flame on low heat and allow to caramelize. Set aside.
Step 7: Pan fry beef in olive oil until browned making sure not to overcook your meat so it doesn’t get tough.
Place the leftover marinade into the pan and add 1/4 to 1/2 cup water. Swirl the pan and adjust seasoning. Pour over cooked beef and top with caramelized onions. Serve. ENJOY! 😀
