Saucy Beef Tapa

Saucy Beef Tapa

After ng Beef Tapa request ni DaddyDoodleDoo, he told me that he didn’t want the dry beef tapa like the one that I made. That what he really wanted was the saucy tender beef tapa — and so, TapSiLog for breakfast ulit!  But this time, we’re having SAUCY BEEF TAPA …

Saucy Beef Tapa

Saucy Beef tapa is very tender because instead of marinating it. It’s boiled in the marinade until it becomes tender. You can take it out from the sauce and shred it after simmering and then put it back and continue simmering for those who prefer shredded beef tapa. I personally like it in chunky pieces so I just let it simmer until it becomes tender and super saucy.

Kayo mga mommies, anong bet nyo sa beef tapa? Dry or saucy?
