Tapsilog is a popular Filipino breakfast dish that consists of beef tapa, fried egg, and garlic fried rice. Serve it alongside fresh tomatoes, cucumber slices, and a spicy vinegar dipping sauce.
Yield: 1 pound beef, serves 4
Mix together soy sauce, calamansi juice, brown sugar, minced garlic, and black pepper until sugar has dissolved. Toss in sliced beef. Cover and let marinate in the fridge for at least 4 hours (up to 24 hours).
Strain beef from marinade. Add about one tablespoon of cooking oil (grapeseed oil or vegetable oil) in a large skillet over medium heat. Once oil is hot, cook beef in batches. Cook beef on each side for 2-4 minutes until well browned.
Serve hot with garlic fried rice and fried egg.
