Beef Tapa

 Beef Tapa is like a street light where you can find it in every corner of the Philippines. Normally served with Garlic Fried Rice and a sunny side-up fried eggs, which we call TAPSILOG. 

Originally the slice beef is cured in a sweet tangy marination and then dried up in the heat of the sun before frying.

Unfortunately, time is not on my side to do the long process of making Beef Tapa.

So here’s a quick, tried and tested way to enjoy an authentic Pinoy Beef Tapa.

I use Beef Striploin for this recipe. You can also use Entrecote or Tenderloin but that will be much expensive and will greatly affect your food budget.

  1. This brought back some memories. I haven’t had tapa in years. For some reason, and I think this is because I thought this as a child, I thought you could only buy tapa (marinated, I mean) from the store. I never thought this was something that could be made at home 🙂
