Homemade Beef Tapa

I finally found the taste I am looking for! Mona said she recently cooked beef tapa and she just used garlic, pepper, salt and vinegar.

I really loved it!  You have to get thinly sliced sirloin.  Ask the butcher in the supermarket to use the slicer to slice the frozen beef.  It should be a little bit thicker than sukiyaki cut.

Homemade Beef Tapa - 1 serving

100 g. sirloin, thinly sliced and cut into strips
1/4 t. rock salt
freshly cracked black pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 T. cane vinegar

Marinate the beef for at least 30 minutes at room temperature.

Add 2 T. water in a stainless frying pan and 1 T. oil.  When it boils, add the beef slices. Stir-fry until the liquid evaporates and the garlic dark brown in color but not burnt.

Super yum!!!!!!  I want to eat this again!

Hahahaha Not so perfect poached egg this time because I was cooking 2 things at the same time.
