Beef Salpicao (Salpicado)

Beef Salpicao is a Filipino dish of Spanish or Portuguese influence.  It’s  beef tenderloin cut into small pieces or strips and marinated in olive oil and sauteed with garlic..lots of garlic!  Really simple and easy and so quick to cook  just allot some time for marinating. I like to serve this with our favorite side, sauteed cabbage with turmeric.

Delicious.
