Way back may college days, after school, me and my classmates wanted to dig down meals as our class ends at 9:00 PM. It's kinda fun that you are eating your favorite meal with your friends, because laughter will never become absent.

One of our favorite place to dine in is the "Jelson's Tapsilog", Tapsilog stands for Tapa, sinangag and itlog which means Beefs Strip, fried rice and sunny-side up egg. Actually, the that place offered different varieties like chicken, pork, fried fish, kikiam and many more all are paired with fried rice and egg. Man! I missed those days.

The Beef Strips

Since I missed the beef strips, I tried creating my own. I don't know the real recipe for Jelson's, so I formulated the sauce that will be used to flavor the strips.

I first boil the strips until tender, roasted garlic, sauted onions and add the sauce until the strips absorbs it.
