This is a famous Filipino dish often served for breakfast. it is served with rice, sunny side up and pickled green papaya. Tapsilog as they call it means tapa, sinangag (fried rice) and itlog (egg).
It is quite easy to make as you just marinate the beef and fry it. I suggest that you be generous with the garlic and overnight marinating is best. The longer you marinate it, the tastier it gets.
This recipe can also be served for appetizer if you wish.
1 kilo beef sirloin, sliced thinly
1 garlic bulb, minced or crushed
1 cup soy sauce
1 1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup oil
Pepper to taste
In a bowl, combine the soy sauce, vinegar, garlic and pepper. You can place the beef in the bowl to marinate it. Keep it covered and refrigerate for 2 hours up to overnight. Another option is to place the beef and marinade in a resealable bag and then refrigerate it. Turn the bag at least once.
In a skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of oil under medium heat. Fry the beef for 5-8 minutes or until it is cooked. Repeat the process for the remaining beef.
Serve immediately with rice and green papaya. Garnish it with fried garlic chips if desired.
