Rich in flavor and history
Beef tapa is a sweet yet tangy dish made of thinly sliced sirloin. Beef is its most common meat of choice, but some variations use carabao, horse, or wild boar meat. It is usually marinated overnight in soy sauce, calamansi juice, sugar, and minced garlic. Once the meat is ready, tapa can be grilled or fried on the stovetop.
Beef tapa’s origins is a tale as old as time. The term is derived from the Proto-Austronesian verb capa, which means to preserve meat through smoking. It is also why we refer to smoked fish as tinapa. When the Spaniards arrived, it became the standard term for referring to cured or preserved meats.
Due to cultural influences, the beef tapa we know has gone through a drastic change. Beef tapa’s original side dishes were usually freshly sliced tomatoes or atchara. But these days, it is prepared tapsilog style; pioneered by Vivian del Rosario in the eighties, the term is a portmanteau of the words tapa, sinangag, and itlog.
