Tapsilog in tagalog is a mixture of 3 different food items, Tap for Tapa which is a fried beef marinated in vinegar and garlic, Si for Sinigang which is a simple garlic fried rice and Log for Itlog which means egg. There are a lot of food items like this in the Philippines and here are some:

  • oil

  2. Add rice and stir fry until the rice is coated with the garlic flavoured oil, this will take around 10 minutes
  3. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Mix thoroughly all ingredients excluding beef in a bowl.
  2. Slice the beef into 2 x 3 inch pieces and soak with the mixture
