Cooking Beef Steak is easier than you think. As long as you follow the steps indicated in this recipe, you should be alright. It is important to marinate the beef in soy sauce and lemon juice f0r at least an hour so that the meat absorbs the flavor prior to cooking. The cut of the beef also matters a lot because this will affect the texture of the dish. Tender cuts are recommended for shorter cooking time. If the cut of beef that you have is tough, try cooking it in a pressure cooker for 30 minutes.
