February 10, 2012<br/>Made this again this evening for dinner, this time I added rice to the beef mixture, it was yummy. My family really enjoys this recipe. thanks.<br/>Nov. 4, 2008<br/>Had this dish for supper last night, all my kids loved it, even my picky eaters. <br/>I like the idea of adding the butter last, awesome.<br/>This is absolutley delicious. Wouldn't change a thing.Reply
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.Reply
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.Replies 2
I did a stir-fry. I cut my beef in strips and marinated for 4 hours. I omitted the salt. I used a wok to saute the beef, added the oyster sauce to plain water and added to the wok when the meat was browned. Then I added two 16 oz bags of a broccoli, cauliflower and carrot mix that was pre-thawed. I added 4 tbs of butter and heated until the veggies were warm. Finally, I added some left over rice and warmed through. It was great and I would use beef broth next time instead of water. Thanks for the previous reviews that helped me to modify to a very good meal.Reply
