Beef Salpicao with Roasted Garlic and Buttered Vegetables


Beef salpicao is one of those dishes that always hits home for me. Take some good quality meat, salt it with some soy sauce and then finish it off with strong garlic. It is a typical filipino dish, however it has so many variations, it’s hard to keep track of all of them. As i’ve said before, traditional cooking is not about having one mother recipe and then following that to the bone. I guess that can only be the case with recipes that are known to have been created by one cook only (like a Caesar’s Salad for example). However with recipes that just came to be (most Filipino dishes), the most important part is to get the flavours right and then the technique or intricacies are yours to play with. Look at what the Australian’s are doing; using fresh ingredients with certain techniques and flavours, which they coin as Australian cuisine. From that point on the possibilites are endless. I believe that Filipino food is an assembly and interaction of flavours, the rest is up to your interpretation. So here is my take on a simple Salpicao.

Beef Salpicao with Buttered Cabbage and Vegetables

These instructions are clearer if you actually watch the video.

For 1 very hungry person or 3 female models

200 grams of Top Sirloin sliced into thick pieces
1 tbsp of soy sauce
1 tbsp of worcestershire sauce
1 tsp of paprika
1 tsp of cayenne pepper (optional)
cracked pepper

Marinade the beef for 2 hours or overnight. Fry at high heat until well browned on both sides (about 1min 1/2 per side depending on the thickness of the meat or until medium rare). reduce the heat completely, add in rest of marinade and 2 chopped baby leeks.

Two whole garlic bulbs, sliced tops, washed, drenched in olive oil, salted and roasted in a 200c oven for 15mins or until soft.

Stir fried vegetables in olive oil in batches: round slices of half a zucchini fried until browned, season, then fry a handful of japanese mushrooms until browned, season, then fry off 2/3 cup of sliced red cabbage with a tsp of butter until soft but with a little bit still, season.

Assemble everything together.

      I’m new to Philipino cuisine. I had the pleasure once eating in a Philipino restaurant and I enjoyed it.
      This looks good and seems worth a try. The recipe calls for soy sauce. I have two kinds in my pantry – dark and light. Which one do you think should I use?

      Danke schön!

      1. Erwan December 17, 2012 at 9:18 am

      And in real life I can finish six pieces of steak (like the ones you cooked) which makes my appetite equivalent to appetite of six female models. #thisiswhyimfat Definitely trying this recipe (and I sure hope that it’s easy to make).

    1. Catherine January 8, 2013 at 12:45 pm

      In the video you say 2 tablespoons of soy sauce but in the written recipe you say 1 tbsp. So which one?:)

    1. Charlymane Estrada January 10, 2013 at 4:26 am

      Is it okay if I’ll remove the paprika in the marinade? Is it spicy or will it add just a little kick? I’m not into spicy food that’s why i’m not familiar with using paprika. :) BTW. Happy Birthday!

      1. Dora Hawk July 12, 2013 at 10:12 am

        Paprika isn’t spicy. It adds colour and a smoky aroma to the dish.

      I think that what you wrote made a lot of sense. However, what about this?
      suppose you were to write a killer title? I ain’t suggesting your content isn’t good.
      , however what if you added a post title to maybe grab folk’s attention? I mean Beef Salpicao with Roasted Garlic and Buttered Vegetables | The Fat Kid Inside is kinda boring. You ought to look at Yahoo’s front
      page and watch how they create article headlines to grab people interested.
      You might add a video or a picture or two to get readers
      interested about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more interesting.

    1. Michelle_Mascar September 5, 2014 at 5:34 am

      Will it be better to cook the beef sliced so it’s evenly cooked on all sides? Or is there a reason why you chose to cook it whole?

      Very informative post you have here and would like to revisit some day. I’m apologizing for the long comment. Cooking in cast iron fry pans or any other type of cast iron pan or pot will often provide the body with enough iron to be at healthy levels. A person with anemia is often told to start cooking with Iron Frypan to increase the levels of iron on their body to more acceptable levels.

I gained weight because of a sedentary lifestyle and overly indulging in foods I knew were bad for me, eating out too often, taking the easy route (microwavable dishes) and not caring what went in my body, before I knew it reached 240 lbs. I lost weight through pure dedication, tireless hours of hard work and yes, food. I cooked my way to fitness, making sure to only feed myself tasty well prepared dishes with all the right stuff, the perfect fuel, taking me down to 150lbs. Of course I indulge from time to time, as the fat kid still lurks inside of me; here you will find a little bit of everything for the sole purpose of sharing my passion for food and life.
