Asian beef steak with soy sauce recipe

Serves 4


  • 1 pound beef sirloin, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon (or more according to taste)
  • 1 large onion, sliced into rings
  • Extra-virgin olive oil (or any oil you have)
  • Pepper


  1. Mix soy sauce, lemon and pepper in a bowl. Taste and adjust. Add beef slices and marinate for at least half an hour.
  2. In a saucepan with oil, saute onion rings for 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Set aside.
  3. Drain marinated beef and save marinade.
  4. In the same pan where you sauteed the onions, saute beef slices until brown on both sides. Transfer to a bowl. Set aside.
  5. Pour marinade in the same pan and bring to a boil. When it boils, simmer for 5 minutes. If sauce is drying up or is too salty, add hot water and more lemon.
  6. Put back the beef and toss together for 3 minutes.
  7. Put back onion rings a couple of minutes before turning off the fire.
  8. Serve with hot steamed basmati or jasmine white rice.
