Filipino Pork Steak


1 kg pork loin sliced thinly

1/2 cup soy sauce

1/2 cup calamansi juice 

1 tsp salt

3 tbsp rice wine

1 to 2 tsp ground black pepper

3 large purple onion

1/2 cup oil

Slice the meat thinly and transfer to a bowl.

Marinate the meat with the ff: 1/2 cup soy sauce, 1/2 cup calamansi juice, rice wine,salt and black pepper. Set aside in the fridge for about 6 hours or overnight.

Start cooking by slicing the onions in rings.

In a pan, add 3 tbsp of oil and fry the onion rings until the fragrance comes out.

Remove the cooked onions from the pan and set aside. ( half cooked pls)

Using the same pan, fry the meat slices until the raw color is gone.

Once done, return all the fried meat in the pan together with left over marinate sauce in the bowl.

Cook by simmering until the sauce is thick or it depends upon to your preferred consistency.

Once you reach your preferred consistency, add the cooked onion rings.

Add the oil from the cooked onion down to the last drop..please..

Stir until the onion and oil is well incorporated with the meat.

Now its done.. enjoy! 

Note: The secret to this tasty Tagalog  dish is the use of purple onion rings and calamansi.

You can fry some eggplant slices like I always did and don't be afraid with onion rings.. theyre half cooked but its so delicious.
