Tapsilog recipe


Filipinos do love a good plate of tapsilog! Thinly sliced beef strips, a fried egg and cup of garlic fried rice sets the stage for a great meal any time of the day! Check out my tapsilog recipe. 

The name tapsilog is a combination of three words in Pilipino: tapa (fried beef strips), sinangag (fried rice) and itlog (fried egg).

Tapsilog is a popular breakfast meal in the Philippines. Most 24 hour restaurants serve an all day breakfast menu that includes Filipino staples such as tapsilog. 

There are a lot of combinations of this meal out there, including hot dogs (hotsilog), corned beef (cornsilog), and longganisa (longsilog).
