The more popular Bistek Tagalog (Beef Steak) has its pork version, too, known as Pork Steak or Pork Bistek. For people who prefer pork over beef, this dish is for you. Some people love their pork cuts with some fat and skin attached to it. Aside from being more economical, the cooking time for pork is much shorter, too.

Preparing this dish doesn’t differ much in terms ingredients and cooking process. The big difference lies in the meat being used. Ideally, pork chops are used for making this dish but any pork cut will work just as well, as long as they are cut properly.
This dish has a distinct citrus flavor because of the infusion of calamansi juice, a local lemon. Soy sauce is also combined to balance off the flavors and to add a touch of saltiness.

As an option, you can also add potatoes to this dish.
