BISTEK TAGALOG is the Filipino version of beef steak.  Bistek consists of thinly sliced beef marinated in soy sauce, kalamansi juice, black pepper, and garlic.  Then pan-fried and garnished with onion rings, caramelized or not. 

I used lime instead of calamansi.  You may ask what the difference would be.  Let me put it this way, calamansi is like cane vinegar and lime is like apple cider vinegar.  the first is milder while the latter is more acidic and has a more intense vinegary flavor.  Please correct me if I am wrong.  

This beefy-licious dish with its salty-tangy taste will make you finish off plateful by plateful of rice ;-) It is a diet killer indeed.
