Beef Salpicao with mushrooms is definitely one of the best way I love to cook beef! Tender, stir-fried cubed beef, seasoned perfectly. With a generous sprinkling of fried garlic, this beef recipe is a show stopper!
Just like my seafood salpicao recipe, this Filipino stir-fried beef dish is also a favorite in our household. With juicy, tender beef cooked in oyster sauce, seasoning, butter and garlic, lots and lots of garlic. So aside from the garlic I cooked the beef with, Unlike other beef recipes, I topped it off with toasted garlic that makes it not only tasty but aromatic too. This one-pan beef recipe can be served as an appetizer or the main course and is done under 20 minutes!
When making beef salpicao …
Choice of beef cut plays a big role when cooking this beef dish, since it’s going to cook in high temperatures, tender parts like sirloin or tenderloin works great.
Garlicky best describes this beef recipe so aside from the garlic used to cook the beef with, sprinkle some fried or toasted garlic while you’re at it. I guarantee you won’t regret it.
Adding mushrooms is entirely optional but incorporating it gives the whole dish umami or additional different taste profile.
Tips for cooking
Cook the garlic first, saute the garlic first in medium heat until they are fragrant. Do not over-cook and set aside.
Turn the heat up when cooking the beef to give it a good sear and trap the moist and flavor inside. But avoid overcooking the meat or else it will turn out dry and hard.
Add the mushrooms lastly, they cook quickly.
The secret ingredient is always LOVE
