Bistek Bulalo with Pineapple

Bistek Bulalo with Pineapple
Bistek Bulalo with Pineapple. This is my second version of my Bistek Bulalo, this time I have introduced another ingredient and tweaked the popular Pinoy bistek dish. The previous Bistek Bulalo was made using pre-boiled 2 inches thick saw cut bulalo cooked Pinoy bistek style with thicken/gravy like sauce. For my second version I omitted the pre-boiling part but I have to ask the butcher to saw cut the bulalo to about 1/2 inch this will facilitate easier frying.

Bistek Bulalo

Cooking method still involved the usual marinating of the beef/bulalo with soy sauce, lemon and some garlic powder. The pineapple slices were seared to caramelized this was done after stir frying the union slices using the same cooking oil and frying pan which was also eventually used in frying the beef/bulalo slices. And finally all the ingredients including the remaining marinade and pineapple syrup was the cooked all together to infuse the flavours together. This one is a must try dish should you are looking for an alternative cooking method of the Bulalo or the Pinoy bistek. Here is the recipe of my Bistek Bulalo with Pineapple.


Beef Bulalo Slices

1 small size beef bulalo, saw cut into 1/2” thick
1 large lemon, juice extracted
1 can sliced pineapple, reserved syrup
3/4 cups soy sauce
2-3 tbsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. cracked peppercorns
3-4 large size red onion, peeled, sliced into rings
cooking oil

Cooking procedure:

Bistek Bulalo with Pineapple - Cooking Procedure

Marinate the beef bulalo slices with the mixture of soy sauce, lemon juice and garlic powder for 15 to 30 minutes. Heat the frying until it start to smoke then add in a generous amount of cooking oil. Stir cook the onion rings until translucent, keep aside. Using the same frying pan sear the pineapple slices on both sides until the edges caramelized, keep aside. Again using the same frying pan fry the beef bulalo slices for 3 to 5 minutes or until color turns to dark brown on both side in batches, add more cooking oil as necessary, keep aside. Now add in the remaining marinade, reserved pineapple syrup, crushed peppercorns and about 3/4 cups of water, bring to a boil then add in the fried beef bulalo slices, then the onions and pineapple slices on top. Cover frying pan and let simmer for about 2 to 3 minutes or until the liquid turns into an oily sauce, lightly stir toss a couple of times. Serve hot with a lot of rice.
