Beef Tapa (Beef Jerky)

Beef tapa is a good old breakfast standby for tapsilog but also perfect drinking food!

tapsilog



Ingredients
2lbs of top round sliced thinly
2 tbsp kosher salt
2 tbsp sugar
8 garlic cloves

Here’s how to make:
1. Mix garlic, sugar and salt in a bowl.
2. Coat the sliced beef and marinate in the fridge for 1 hour.
3. This is when the beef needs to be dried. Traditionally under the sun but as an alternative we can use the oven. Pre-heat oven to 400 F. Put slices of beef on a half sheet and dry for 10-15 minutes.
4. The beef is now ready for frying or store in the fridge/freezer

  1. I have never made tapa. Thanks for sharing this.

  2. This is really cool!!!… Had fun watching it…

    I’d say well rehearsed! LOL…

    Can I order some? Shipped it down here in VA…

  3. I enjoyed watching the video. Growing up in Manila we had tapa for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I’ve never heard it cured with sugar but remember my mom soaking it in a mixture of soy sauce, calamansi juice, garlic, salt and pepper then left outside to cure. But you know, maybe they make it differently in Cebu?

    Anyhow, I’m going to try it the way you make it and will let you know. Thanks for the recipe/video!

  4. Funny you said “dinner for breakfast” because that’s exactly what my son said when I made tapsilog this morning. Great video Paolo and great camera work Therese :)
    My mom makes tapa without sugar - but I like mine the way you make it - a little sweet, with the edges caramelized a little - oh and no drying - who has the patience? Not my kids!

  5. Thank you for sharing this! I’m going to have to try this soon.

    By the way, I have had tapa outside of breakfast, but it was sort of shredded and eaten as more of a snack, sometimes with beer as pulutan (beer snack).

  6. yummy. nice video. :)

  7. Terrific dish ! We love our Tapsilog at home! I make it all the time for weekend brunch! Thanks for sharing.

  8. your video is well done, easy to follow. I love that you appreciate filipino food amidst all the food selection in the US, good job!

  9. You have to put soy sauce and vinegar for marinating. That’s the traditional filipino recipe of beef tapa.
