Beef Tapa

I'll let you in a secret - I am still confused over which is my most favorite among Beef Tapa, Beef Steak (Bistek) or Pork Ribs Adobo. Funny right?!
Anyway, they are almost similar in taste and in the manner of cooking so it doesn't really matter that much to me already.

While I am already able to formulate my "This Is It!" Adobo recipe, I am still having problems with my Beef Tapa. The taste I've been craving for is somehow similar to Tapa King's Tapa Queen and Pancake House's Beef Tapa.

Experimenting, I used the following marinade ratio and method:


Beef Tapa

Ingredients:
1/2kg beef sirloin (or tenderloin), cut into strips
1 1/2T salt
1/4cup sugar
3T soy sauce
1 head of garlic, minced
1tsp ground black pepper
oil for frying

How I did it:
I marinated the beef strips in the salt, sugar, soy sauce, garlic and ground black pepper mixture overnight.
I then fried it on some hot oil until cooked through.

This is a very simple recipe but really tasty. I am considering adding less of the sugar so that the outcome won't be as "sticky". Some say they use fish sauce (patis) instead of toyo to make the beef strips not too dark. Maybe I'll try that next time.

Here's my beef tapa mixed with garlic fried rice (already mixed with the sunny side up egg) and atchara and tomatoes. Yummy!
