about 3
overnight and 45 minutes


  • Tapa
    • Marinade
      • 500 g beef1)
      • 100 ml soy sauce
      • 60 ml vinegar
      • 30 ml sugar
      • 30 ml minced garlic
      • pepper
    • 500 ml water
    • 1/2 an onion
  • cooking oil
  • eggs
  • rice


  1. The night before
    1. Cut the beef into thin slices, about 3-5 mm wide if possible. Make sure to cut along the grain. Ideally you want a cut of meat that has a well defined grain.
    2. Combine marinade ingredients in a container and store in the refrigerator.
  2. In the morning
    1. Start cooking rice
    2. Put tapa ingredients in a frying pan and simmer till the water is boiled off (about 45 minutes)
    3. Fry some eggs with a bit of oil, you probably want to start when the water from the Tapa dish is getting low.
    4. When the water is gone, add a bit of oil and fry for a short minute on low heat
    5. Serve
I like round steak due to being reasonably cheap, easy to slice, and its general lack of fat
