Beef tapa is the Filipino version of 'cured beef' popularly served for breakfast known as "TAPSILOG"
I love my tapa to be on the sweet-tangy side so that's what we're making today.
Let's make TAPSILOG!
TAPSILOG is a blend of Filipino words that means... TAPA (TAP) - cured beef SINANGAG (SI) - garlic rice ITLOG (LOG) - egg
Tenderize the beef. Pound the beef with a meat mallet using the spiky side - this will break down the muscle fibers and will make it tender.
Marinate the beef. For best flavor, marinate the beef tapa overnight. The acid in the pineapple juice and vinegar also helps tenderize the meat which allows it to absorb more flavor.
Cook the beef. Heat the oil in a wide pan over high heat. The pan must be hot enough to brown and cook the beef quickly.
