  • 2 lbs. eye of round or top sirloin steak thinly sliced
  • 2 pieces beef franks cut in half
  • 4 boiled eggs wedged
  • 1 medium carrot cut into sticks
  • 1 can 14 oz. diced tomato
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 Knorr Beef Cube
  • 1 dill pickle cut into sticks
  • 1 medium yellow onion diced
  • 4 cloves garlic crushed and minced
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 8 tablespoons cooking oil

Steak marinade

  • 3 to 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper


  • Flatten the steak by pounding with a meat tenderizer tool.
  • Combine steak and the steak marinade ingredients. Mix well. Make sure that the steak (beef) is coated all over. Let it stay for at least 10 minutes.
  • Slice the steak into 6 x 5 inch pieces. Put a slice of beef frank, pickle, carrot, and wedged boiled egg in one side of the steak. Roll the steak until a cylindrical shape is formed. Secure by tying a kitchen twine. This will be your beef morcon. Set aside. Perform this step until all the steak is consumed.
  • Heat 5 tablespoons of oil in a pan. Dredge the rolled beef morcon in all-purpose flour. Pan-fry all the sides for 1 minute or until it turns light to medium brown. Set aside.
  • On a clean pan, heat the remaining 3 tablespoons of cooking oil.
  • Sauté garlic and onion
  • Add the diced tomato and tomato sauce.
  • Pour-in water and add Knorr Beef Cube. Stir. Let boil.
  • Put the pan-fried morcon in the pan. Cover and then simmer for 50 to 60 minutes. Add water if the sauce starts to dry out.
  • Sprinkle salt and pepper. Stir.
  • Turn the heat off. Let the beef morcon cool down. Slice into serving pieces.
  • Transfer to a serving plate. Top with remaining sauce.
  • Share and enjoy!
