Second to pandesal, tapsilog is Filipinos favorite breakfast. Tapsilog is combination of tapa, sinangag (fried rice) and itlog (sunny side up). This is a perfect breakfast for anyone expecting a very busy day. Tapa is either beef or pork marinated in soy sauce and lime juice with lots of garlic and a little sugar. It can be cured or uncured. I am making my own tapa that has no any preservative in it.
1/2 kilo beef or pork sirloin (sliced thinly)
3 tbsp. brown sugar
1/3 cup soy sauce
3 tbsp. lime juice
1 whole head of garlic (minced)
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
