  • We used Tapa sliced beef tenderloin in this recipe, you can request your meat vendor to do the Tapa slice for you.
  • Prepare all the ingredients and in a large bowl, combine salt, black pepper, half of the garlic, 3 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce and 1 tablespoon Oyster sauce, mix well then add the beef slices and marinate for about 20 minutes to half an hour.
  • In a small bowl, combine all the remaining ingredients, the brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, and red chili pepper flakes. Use a whisk to mix the ingredients until the sugar is completely dissolved then set aside.
  • Remove the beef from the marinade and drain.
  • Using a large frying pan or wok, apply medium heat, add Canola oil, then fry the remaining garlic until it turns brown, remove the garlic and set aside.

    Filipino cooking is new to me. So far, I’m really liking what I see and look forward to trying some new recipes. I am very garlic sensitive unless it’s roasted first. Would that work in this recipe?
