Beef Saute & Lentil Soup

Labels: , ,

I won't call this dish beef salpicao, I don't know why Filipinos call it such. There isn't a Spanish dish called salpicao and salpicon is a beef salad. There is a Portuguese meaty sausage called salpicao, though. I'll just call this dish garlic beef saute.

1 pound New York strip steak, cut into 1½ x 1½ inch cubes
5 cloves garlic, chopped
¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons sea salt
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
extra virgin olive oil for frying
crispy fried slivered garlic
  • Mix well first 6 ingredients, transfer into a Ziploc gallon bag and marinate overnight in the fridge. The next day, remove the meat, discard the garlic and reserve the marinade liquid. Pat the meat dry and fry in hot oil until brown or desired doneness. Transfer to a serving dish. Cook the reserved marinade in the same pan, let boil for 2 minutes, taste and adjust seasoning. Drizzle onto the cooked meat. Sprinkle with fried garlic.

Lentil Soup

8 ounces lentils, cleaned of foreign materials and rinsed
1 cup chopped smoked ham
1 carrot, diced
1 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 celery stick, chopped
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup chicken broth
2 cups water
1 bay leaf
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil plus extra for drizzling
  • Put all ingredients in a medium saucepan and let boil, turn the heat to medium-low and simmer for 40 minutes. Remove bay leaf before serving. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.
