Kusahos is an Ilonggo Style tapa prepared by sun drying beef strips marinated in a mixture of garlic, soy sauce and vinegar.


  • 1 kg beef rump steak, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup cane vinegar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 whole garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp freshly ground black pepper


  1. In a bowl combine all ingredients apart from the beef. Mix well.
  2. Add the beef, using your hands massage the meat with the marinade. Let the meat marinade overnight in the refrigerator uncovered to dry it out.
  3. Remove meat from the refrigerator then place it in a wire rack on top of a wide flat pan to catch the drippings.
  4. Place meat outside on direct sunlight first thing in the morning, cover it with a mesh food cover to let the sunlight in and flies away. Once the sun sets, your meat will be dried, if not then repeat the process for one more day.
  5. Once ready fry the sun-dried meat in a wok with oil until cooked and crispy.
