Beef Tapa With Bell Peppers and Carrots

This is my version of beef tapa with bell pepper and carrots. The kids included this recipe in their list of favorites. So easy to prepare. But I don’t have the exact measurement of the ingredients.

Ingredients:

  • Beef cut into thin bite-size
  • carrots diced
  • green and red bell pepper diced
  • prime soy sauce (any soy sauce will do)
  • oyster sauce
  • cracked pepper
  • chili flakes
  • garlic minced
  • cornstarch
  • sugar
  • water
  • oil
  • sesame seeds for topping

Procedure:

  1. Marinate the beef in soy sauce, garlic, cracked pepper, oyster sauce, and cornstarch for a few hours or overnight.
  2. Fry the beef in a small amount of cooking oil until light brown.
  3. Add water just enough to cover the meat.
  4. Let it cook in medium heat until tender.
  5. Add in carrots and pepper.
  6. Add a bit of sugar to taste.
  7. Simmer until the sauce dries up a little.
  8. You can add chili flakes if you like them spicy.
  9. Turn off the heat. Top with sesame seeds.
  10. Serve with plain or fried rice. Enjoy!

Cheese Tikoy

Naki-Chinese New Year din kami by enjoying this CNY cake from our thoughtful friend from the PJI office. She always remembers kahit anong okasyon ang dumating. We appreciate it, ma’am. Thank you! 🙂

My daughter ordered a box of Tikoy from Henlin the other day and was able to cook half of it. This is easy to cook or fry. Sliced it thinly and dip in egg before frying. Fry for a few minutes until golden brown. It’s best served with coffee or anything you have.

Nian gao, sometimes translated as year cake or Chinese New Year’s cake, is a food prepared from glutinous rice flour and consumed in Chinese cuisine. While it can be eaten all year round, traditionally it is most popular during Chinese New Year. Wikipedia
