    This is a Filipino recipe and whenever I bring this for lunch at work, my officemates can't help but "sample" it. The beef is tender and juicy with a buttery-garlic flavor. :)

      Correction to Chef didnac''s "CORRECTION": Technically, you are right about the origins of both salpicao, and adobo. However, it does not make the way this dish is cooked any less Filipino. Just because the Spaniards, as well as many other countries colonized the country, thereby influencing just about everything within Filipino culture, does not mean that it is not Filipino.

      CORRECTION: salpicao is not a filipino recipe. its origin is mainly from portugese. like adobo it is not a filipino recipe it's from spain. but your recipe is good , just lessen some of the ingredients quantity , like the seasoning, it is too much for a 1 pound beef , and also the salt. do not season too much or over anything.
