Bulalo Steak

An unusual yet mouth-watering way of preparing and serving beef shanks for us Pinoys is to have it marinated, slowly tenderized its meat, side-dished with vegies then served with rice. I called it Bulalo Steak =D I love it when served with sizzling plate, but since I don't have it, I just served it freshly hot from the casserole.
Well, it is not very much advisable for people with high cholesterol level, thus you can still enjoy its photo. =D

  • 1 kg bulalo (beef shank, bone in)
  • water
  • 1 large onion - chopped
  • 2 chilli - chopped
  • ¼ cup tablespoon soysauce
  • ¼ cup lemon / calamansi juice
  • 2 tablespoon Oyster Sauce
  • 3 tablespoon Sweet Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 cup green Bell Pepper - cut into strips
  • 1 tablespoon flour - diluted in water
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • salt and pepper

  1. In a pressure cooker, put beef shanks, water (just enough to cover the beef), 1/4 cup soy sauce, lemon/calamansi juice, onion, chilli, salt and pepper. Tenderize bulalo for 30 minutes. Start timing when the water in the steamer starts to boil.
  2. Remove tenderized beef from the broth. Set aside 1 cup of broth.
  3. Mix oyster sauce, sweet soy sauce, 1 cup beef broth and the diluted flour. Set aside.
  4. Heat butter and pan-fry the bulalo until brown on all sides.
  5. Pour the beef broth mixture.
  6. Season with salt and pepper. Let it simmer until the sauce becomes thick.
  7. Put the bell pepper. Let it cook for a minute.
  8. Serve and Enjoy!
