TAPSILOG (A Filipino Breakfast)

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. You can choose from varieties of breakfast ideas: cereals, pancakes, waffles, French toast, eggs, hotdogs and for those whose tummies are not used to eating during breakfast, they will have coffee or hot chocolate. Sometimes, to be honest, I find it hard to make up my mind on what to serve for breakfast due to the choices I have. At times, I would love to have pancakes alone with a cup of coffee, or French toast and egg and of course, with a cup of coffee. There are times, I’d love rice, hotdogs, scrambled egg and a glass of juice or iced tea. Also, there are times that I’d like to have a “heavy meal” for breakfast.

What I am going to share today is another favorite breakfast of mine. We call this TAPSILOG.

Tapsilog means…

TAPa (Beef Tapa), SInangag (Fried Rice) and ItLOG (Egg).

Before we can call this meal a TAPSILOG, we should make the Beef Tapa first. By the way, Beef Tapa is a cured beef. I think it should be dry but mine was not dry at all. I prefer it with a little “sauce”.

Beef Tapa

Ingredients:

  • 500g beef sirloin, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. In a container, combine soy sauce, garlic, salt, pepper, and sugar and mix well. Set aside
  2. Place the beef in another container or in a ziplock bag.
  3. Pour the mixture you made in #1 with the beef. Give it a good mix.
  4. Marinate inside the fridge overnight or 12 hours.

To cook: 

  1. In a pan, place 1 cup of water and bring to a boil.
  2. Add 3 tbsp of cooking oil.
  3. Place in the marinated beef and cook until the water evaporates.

Serve with fried sunny side up eggs (or scrambled) and fried rice. 🙂

Note: You can skip the above procedure and directly fry the beef in oil.

    1. Mmm, there’s nothing I can think of. This dish could not be separated from rice. Well, that’s how we serve it. I haven’t tried any other way. But I heard that there are salads with beef – maybe that could be possible. 🙂

    1. Yes, it provides the energy I need for the day. But sometimes, I intentionally reserve some for my lunch, haha! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
