Home Made Tapa Recipe Pinoy Favorite Breakfast!

Finally you woke up after a long night sleep. You're so tired because of tons of paper works you've done yesterday. Now it's time to regenerate your energy that you lose. Tapa is one of the popular foods in the restaurants, tapsilogan, karinderya and even in hotels here in the Philippines. It's so tasty that will make you eat a lot of garlic rice. Tapsilog "Tapa, Sinangag, Itlog is one of the favorite dishes of the Filipinos in the morning.

There are times that you eat a good Tapa, there are times that stores give you small portion of Tapa that makes it not affordable for you. Sometimes you're thinking of making your own tapa and have your own tapsilog in the house.

In this case, Pinoy Food 201 has something special for you. The recipe of Tapa from Filipino Food Recipes. This recipe requires marination, so if you're planning to cook it for breakfast, do the marination prior to cooking. The marination time is 4 hours. So you're ready for the recipe? Below is the recipe of Home Made Tapa:


2 pounds beef round or chuck, sliced thinly against the grain
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 head garlic, minced
Canola or any cooking oil for frying
1 Mix together all the ingredients except the cooking oil. Blend well to coat beef thoroughly with the liquids and seasonings.

2 Cover and let marinate inside the refrigerator for minimum of 4 hours, or even overnight.

3 To cook, drain first the excess liquid from the marinade so the beef will fry and not boil in its own liquid.

4 Heat up the oil in the pan, fry the beef in batches.

5 Serve with Fried Rice, Fried Egg and a side of cut tomatoes.


Substitute vinegar if lemon juice is not available. Use the same measure or saturate with some water. The dish will be more tangy than tart.

Since this Filipino beef tapa recipe is a wet marinade, it is important to drain the liquid well before frying. Too much liquid will cause it to boil in it rather than fry.

I suggest that you do not marinate the beef for more than 24 hours. If you don't plan to cook the whole batch of beef that you marinated, you can keep what is left over in your freezer for up to 2 weeks. Just remember to label and date it.

I enjoyed this recipe a lot. If you also do, you may visit the original source of the recipe and thank the sharer. There are more breakfast recipe for you here in Pinoy Food 201. Check them out below:
