Do you love the traditional bistek but looking for something new? This recipe might be for you, similar to the bistek that you know where beef is studded with tons of onions but this time with a creamy edge and a touch of lemon, equally delicious but totally different flavour profile. A simple dish to prepare and it uses a cheap cut of beef, very budget friendly and definitely tasty.

    I see mushrooms in the dish but I don’t see it in the recipe.

    Looks great but I would not bother trying to cook that here. No fresh beef and the imported frozen Australian and New Zealand beef is as tough as leather.

  3. This is the second cream and mushroom recipe I see this week, now with steak…I am so hungry!
