Bistek (Spanish: bistec) or Bistec is a Spanish loan word derived from the English words "beef steak" abbreviated.

Bistec encebollado is a Spanish dish that can be found in all former Spanish colonies, including the Caribbean islands of Cuba, Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico.

Regional variations include: Bistec de Palomilla in Cuba, Bistec Ranchero in Mexico, Bistec a Caballo (topped with Hogao and a fried egg) in Colombia, and Bistec A Lo Pobre (served with fried plantain, fried eggs, fries, and rice) in Peru.

The Filipino version is called Bistek Tagalog, a dish made of strips of salted and peppered sirloin beef, usually flattened with a meat tenderizing tool, slowly cooked in soy sauce, calamansi juice, garlic and onions, a specialty of the Tagalog region.[1] It is known in the Spanish-speaking world as bistec encebollado or bistec tagalo. It is usually Anglicized in Philippine English as "beefsteak."
