Beef Tapa Recipe

Beef tapa is a Filipino dish prepared by preserving thin slices of beet with salt and spices. It is commonly serviced with fried rice (sinangang) and sunny side up egg. Beef tapa served with fried rice and fried egg is referred to as tapsilog – tap for tapa, si for sinangag, and log for itlog (egg).  Tapsilog is also a popular Filipino breakfast.

  • 300 grams canned pineapple bits
  • 1 white onion (onion rings)
  • 1 small red onion (chopped)
  • 2 garlic cloves (chopped)
  • Ground black pepper
  • 5 tbsp cooking oil

5) Add the cooking oil and fry.
