fried marinated beef

I have been craving for something filling lately. Whenever I eat I always have this feeling of dissatisfaction. My stomach might be full but my body craves for something else. It is annoying not being able to find what I want simply because I did not know I want. Crazy? That is me. Anyway, I went to the grocery store yesterday and I had every intention to buy tuna steak so I can make kinilaw (a salad of fresh fish in vinegar, lemon, salt, tomatoes, onions, and ginger) but as luck (or lack thereof) would have it there was no seafood counter on that store I went to. So I just grabbed a pack of beef roast which I did not get around to cooking until now. I cut the beef into smaller, thinner slices, marinate it with soy sauce and lemon with crushed garlic for about an hour then pan fried the lot. It was so good with rice and for the first time in weeks, I am finally satisfied with a meal. To think that it was just a simple fare. I thought about fresh sliced tomatoes which should have been a good side dish but I did not have any so I had to make do with what I have. I still have plenty left of the cooked meat and my rice cooker is on for more rice. Maybe I will find tomatoes tomorrow.
