Beef teriyaki tapa with fried egg is another version of tapsilog that I want to share with you. This makes use of beef steak (that was sliced thinly) and our homemade teriyaki sauce. The result is a delicious sweet tapsilog that I always enjoy to have.
I got the beef steak already prepared. Apparently, the nearby Mexican meat shop has this beef cut ready. It is called beef taco meat. It is intended for beef tacos and burritos, but we can leverage on it to make whatever we like. That is the reason why I used it to make this beef teriyaki tapa.
Chances are that other won’t be as privileged. Don’t worry because you just need to buy a good kind of meat (like rib eye steak) and slice it yourselves, or even ask your butcher to do it for you. I hope that I was as privileged when it comes to the availability of fresh seafood and Asian vegetables. I needed to travel far from where I am at in the suburbs of Chicago for these.
Tips on How to Cook Beef Teriyaki Tapa with Fried Rice and Egg
The beef will need to be marinated in teriyaki sauce. The recipe below will tell you how it can be done and a link is also available for you to see the homemade teriyaki sauce recipe. My only tip about marinating beef (and most meats in general) is that it will absorb most of the flavor when marinated for longer hours.
When cooking the beef, it is normal for liquid to come out of the meat. These are the natural juices and the marinade. Continue to cook the meat in medium heat until the juices completely evaporates. This will help make the meat tender and tastier. The beef will be tenderized by the boiling process, while the evaporation of liquid will make the sauce more saturated which means more flavor.
The garlic fried rice is made using the Filipino way – sinangag. You can refer to the link below on how it’s done or you can also check out this sinangag recipe.
There are more than a hundred ways to cook eggs. I included a link in the recipe that will give you an idea on 10 of the ways to cook eggs. It is up to you to choose.
