Pork Liver Steak or Liver Bistek is one of the many variants of our favorite Bistek Tagalog which uses pork liver instead of the usual beef. I was introduced to this dish growing up because my nanay told me I was anemic and I had to eat this because it’s rich in iron. I had no problem, because — hey, I love liver — in menudo, in pancit, — in any dish you can put it in. So this easily became a favorite.

Just like our regular bistek tagalog, it’s very easy to cook — takes 30 minutes – and the ingredients can easily be found in our kitchen everyday — toyo, calamansi, white onions.


You may season this with patis, if you think it still needs it. But for me, I don’t add patis anymore because my family likes to have a dipping sauce of spicy patis with calamansi while eating. Alam nyo naman tayong mga pinoy, hindi nawawala ang mg sawsawan kapag kumakain. So it’s really up to you.

  1. The first time I tasted bistek ay noong nagka work ako Mommy. And honestly, napa wow ako sa sarap. That was year 2014. So everytime lunch time namin bistek inoorder ko, lista2 nalang, sahod na yung bayad. I am a picky eater, kasi dun sa province namin, kung ano lang yung meron yun lang din kakainin. And most of the time more veggies tapos isda. So the time nung nasa syudad na ako, parang na ignorante ako sa mga foods.
    Anyways, sobrang sarap talaga nitong bistek. Thanks for sharing Mommy. Papalutuin ko si Mister nito, sya kasi cook dito sa bahay. ❤️
