1 pound beef sirloin (New York strip, or boneless rib eye), sliced thin against the grain*
1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup calamansi juice
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
6 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
garlic fried rice (sinangag)
Mix together soy sauce, calamansi juice, brown sugar, minced garlic, and black pepper until sugar has dissolved. Toss in sliced beef. Cover and let marinate in the fridge for at least 4 hours (up to 24 hours).
Strain beef from marinade. Add about one tablespoon of cooking oil (grapeseed oil or vegetable oil) in a large skillet over medium heat. Once oil is hot, cook in beef in batches. Cook beef on each side for 2-4 minutes until well browned.
Serve hot with garlic fried rice and fried egg.
