Remember back in the 80's where we used to watch a sitcom entitled 2+2? A popular and  funny guy named bistek (Mayor Herbert Bautista) made us all laugh with his antics and  comical moves.

Well, being only a child at that time, to my surprise, bistek is also a filipino dish!  Taken from the word beef steak. This pinoy dish is made of beef, soy sauce, onions and  "calamansi" or lemon.

The combination of soy sauce and lemon, together with raw onions is what makes bistek so  delightful to eat. Throw in some rice and a soda and you got yourself a dinner!

1 lb beef sirloin, thinly sliced
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 piece lemon or 3 pieces calamansi
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 large onion, sliced into rings
3 tbsp cooking oil
salt to taste
