Beef Stewed in Milk ala Marco

It's father's day so i can't help but remember my Dad and the delicious sumptuous meal he prepared when he was still alive. Yes, he's man of the kitchen. One of the dishes I like best was the one of the beef stewed in milk. I don't know what it's called, I have never asked him, or maybe I did but I don't remember since I was still young then. I don't know the exact ingredients either, but I remember the taste. So, with the best that I can, I tried cooking it, it was good ~ but still something was missing. I'd like to do this again some other time, and experiment on some ingredient. Or maybe, I can never replicate it because it was specially his and he has some sort of a magic ingredient? But nevertheless, I'd like to share it with you and I am naming it Beef Stewed in Milk ala Marco (t'was his name~ Marco).

Beef Stewed in Milk ala Marco

500g beef sirloin, thinly sliced
1 cup chick peas (garbanzos)
3 tbsp soy sauce
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp calamansi juice
salt and ground pepper, to taste
1 cup condensed milk
1 beef cube
1 cup water
2 tbsp olive oil

How to prepare:

  • Marinate the beef with the soy sauce, calamansi juice and garlic at least an hour, but best if you can marinate it over night in the fridge.
  • In a pan, heat olive oil, then add the marinated beef and the sauce as well. 
  • Add the water, beef cube and chick peas. Season with ground pepper and salt as needed. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes over low heat.
  • Add the milk. Adjust the taste, add salt as needed. Cover and simmer again for another 15-20 minutes or until the sauce is reduced into desired thickness. And it's done! Transfer in a serving plate.
  • That's how easy it is. Just remember to buy the best and tender cut of beef so cooking would be easy!
  • Enjoy!
