Pork Bistek Tagalog

This is Pork Bistek Tagalog. A dish made with onions and strips of sirloin pork slowly cooked in soy sauce, and calamansi juice. Its original version is Bistek Tagalog which uses beef instead of pork.

But since beef is quite expensive, I prefer using pork this time so I came up with Pork Bistek Tagalog. I also used different method of cooking for this dish because pork is more tender than beef. 

Aside from Pork Giniling Guisado and Sinigang, Pork Bistek Tagalog is one of my kids' favorite dishes. For sure my eldest son would ask for another extra plate of rice again.

For Marinade:

  • 1 kilograms pork sirloin, cut into strips
  • ¼ cup calamansi juice
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar

For Cooking:

  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 medium red onion sliced
  • 1 large white onion, cut into rings
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
