Tapsilog is a meal composed of Filipino beef jerky, garlic fried rice, and fried egg. The name was derived from the ingredients. The beef jerky is known as “Tapa”, garlic fried rice is called “Sinangag”, and the Filipino term for egg is “Itlog” – thus TapSiLog.
Tapsilog is a popular meal in the Philippines. The meal is commonly consumed during breakfast. However, it can be consumed anytime of the day or night. due to the existence of several eateries (these are known as Tapsihan or Tapsi House) and/or restaurants serving this food. There are even 24-hour eateries that serve Tapsilog along with other delicious dishes such as Tosilog, Arroz Caldo, and Goto.
This Tapsilog recipe is a combination of our homemade beef tapa recipe and sinangag recipe. I think that most of you does an awesome job in frying eggs, so I did not cover the “How to fry an egg” part.
