The perfect Breaky to start the day! ( Tapsilog)


pizap.com13956741384851

Tapsilog is the perfect breakfast for me. I love the fried cured beef strips( tapa), fried rice(sinangag) and fried egg(itlog)  combination ☺. Tapsilog is also popular in my country Philippines and I must say one of the staple food of all Filipinos. The tapa is usually made by marinating the beef in a special sauce or mixture and then drying it out in the sun. This process gives it that sweet, savory flavor and slightly chewy texture. Of course I skip the drying process since it is not that sunny here but I assure you that it still like the tapa that you’ve craved.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb beef sirloin, cut into very thin strips then tendered
  • 1 head garlic,  minced
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 4 Tbsp vinegar
  • 1 tsp black pepper
 For Sinangag or Garlic Fried Rice:
  • 4 cups cooked rice
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • Salt to taste
For Fried Egg or Pritong Itlog:
  • 4  eggs
  • Salt to taste
Procedure:
1. Put the soy sauce, vinegar, minced garlic, sugar, salt and pepper in a bowl or in a freezer bag. Mix it well.
2. Add meat. Let it marinate overnight, or at least 1 hr.
3. When done marinating, drain then fry the meat in a pan, with 2 Tbsp cooking oil, over medium low heat just until cooked through (or if you want, until crispy). Put 5-6 strips per plate. Set aside.
4. Make garlic fried rice in the same pan. Saute the garlic until golden brown. Add the rice. Break it down and mix it well, so the oil gets on all the rice. Add salt to suit your taste. Fill a cup  with rice. Put cup upside down on the plate beside the beef strips then lift.
5. Serve with fried egg and enjoy!
