Creamy Bistek Recipe

Make your favorite bistek recipe richer, creamier.

All you need to cook a delicious bistek recipe are the right ingredients: thinly sliced beef, soy sauce, calamansi juice, and sliced onions. Sometimes some freshly chopped garlic or even garlic powder is added for more flavor. 

There is one ingredient in this recipe that we think may change your bistek cooking game: all-purpose cream

It’s an easy and delicious addition to an otherwise simple recipe, and it’s one that makes this classic Filipino food even better and more flavorful, too.
