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.
- 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:
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!♥
Hello everyone! First of all I would like to say thank you to all my followers. I hope you will try some of the recipes here 🙂
Anyway, the recipe that I will share to you now is another Filipino favourite. This is usually served on breakfast together with fried egg & fried rice. Tocino is a sweet cured pork. I got the recipe from Youtube and I love it. My husband loves it too so I hope you could try this sometime. You could watch it here YouTube
For the syrup
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup pineapple juice
. Mix the two ingredients in a pot and boil. Set aside and let it cool down.
1 kilo pork,cut thinly ( you can use chicken too )
1/4 cup white sugar
2 Tablespoon rice wine/mirin
1 Tablespoon of fine salt
2 teaspoon ground pepper
.Put all the ingredients in a bowl together with the syrup. Mix it until fully incorporated. Put in the refrigerator and cure for two days.
After the second day, the cured pork can be either pan-fried or grilled. When pan-frying, heat the oil in a large pan over medium-to-high heat. Pan-fry the pork slices for two to three minutes on each side, until cooked through and browned. Transfer to a plate and continue frying the remaining pork slices. When grilling, grill the pork slices for two to three minutes on each side, until nicely charred.
