Lasang Pinoy, Sundays: Beef Tapa

Labels: , , , ,

a favorite pulutan: beef tapa

This week's Lasang Pinoy, Sundays: Strips. First thing that came to mind was beef tapa, strips of thinly sliced cured beef, then fried crisp and enjoyed with garlic fried rice and a fried egg or two, the original TapSiLog. It is also a favorite pulutan (appetizer) to munch on while drinking ice cold San Miguel® beer.

TapSiLog is eaten with vinegar spiced with super hot bird's eye chili pepper
or tomatoes sprinkled with sea salt

a weekly food photography meme, Pinoy style, is hosted by SpiCes.

Beef Tapa
1 pound thinly sliced beef, cut into 1-inch wide strips
1 cup pineapple juice
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1/8 tsp pink salt, optional
1 to 2 tablespoons oil for frying
  • Mix pieapple juice, salt, sugar, and pink salt if using. Coat the meat evenly, put in a gallon freezer zipper bag and marinate overnight in the refrigerator. The next day, drain the meat and discard marinade. Pat the meat dry with paper towels. Put slices on racks and place the racks on baking sheets. Dry the beef in a warm oven (less than 200° F) for 1 to 2 hours. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a skillet and shallow fry beef until crisp.

your beef tapa looks extra crispy and yummy. reminds me of dried beef from KL... YUM!

Oggi said...

Iska, it becomes crispy when shallow fried but it's also good chewy like beef jerky.
