Slow Cooker Filipino Beefsteak

Filipinos love their beefsteak or beefstek as they spell it in menus.  It is grilled in a bit of oil after marinating the meat in soy sauce and calamansi, a Filipino citrus.  I did not have calamansi and used lemon juice instead in this version.  I decided to use my slow cooker to see if I will be satisfied with the result and I was.  Of course there is nothing like a grilled piece of meat especially beef but I would say the slow cooker version delivered in taste that you would be just as addicted to as you would eating the grilled version.  Enjoy this popular and well loved Filipino dish done in a more convenient manner.

Slow Cooker Filipino Beefsteak

  • 2.5 lb beef round steak
  • 2 tbsp corn starch
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • juice of 1/2 lemon (you can use juice of the whole lemon if you wish)
  • 1 each green and yellow peppers, cut in rings
  • 1 large onion, cut in rings
Place the beef round steak (whole slab) at the bottom of the slow cooker.  Cut them in half if you need to. Mix the corn starch, soy sauce, vegetable broth and lemon juice in a small bowl. Pour over the beef.  Place the pepper and onion slices on top of the meat and slow cook for 3 hours at high setting or 6 hours at low. I cooked mine in an Aroma Brand rice cooker/slow cooker for 2 hours at slow cooker setting. 

You can eat this dish with rice or fried potatoes or baked french fries.
