Coat some thinly sliced sirloin in ground pepper. Marinate for 30 minutes in salt and white vinegar. Quickly sear beef in pan. Then add a sliced red onion and continue to cook for 5 minutes. Add a couple of sliced chillies and serve.

Lizzie Collingham in her book "Curry a tale of cooks and conquerors" related that this dish comes from Goa and is based on Portuguese vinegar marinated meat. My bet is that this dish comes from a similar foundation.
The lime juice is likely a local variation that I'd add as a late addition flavouring before serving.
