The BEST garlicky beefy Filipino dish – this Beef Salpicao recipe calls for the most minimal of ingredients but packed with maximum flavour.

Beef Salpicao Recipe

Beef Salpicao is a Filipino dish that’s comforting, flavourful, and takes less than 10 minutes to put together! It’s made up of tender cubes of steak, coated in an amazing buttery garlicky sauce, and served on top of garlic fried rice. It uses the simplest ingredients but what you get is one tasty mouth-wateringly good bowl of garlicky beefy goodness. 

This was one of my highlights last week after a loooong day at work. More importantly, pairs perfectly with an ice cold beer 🍻

  • Neutral oil
  • 370g steak, cut into large cubes (your choice of cut)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 10 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 spring onions, chopped (save the green parts for garnish)
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chilli flakes
  • 2 cups cooked white rice



Season the steak with salt and pepper and let it stand for 5 minutes.


Whisk together the spring onions, soy sauce, sugar, Worcestershire sauce and chilli flakes and set aside.


Heat up a pan over medium-high heat. Add in the butter and once melted, add the beef cubes in. Sear it on one side for 2 minutes, add in the garlic and flip the cubes over. Pour the sauce over it immediately and stir fry for another 2 minutes or until the beef is cooked to your liking. Transfer the beef to another plate and let it rest.


Lower the heat to medium and add more oil into the pan. Fry half of the garlic until slightly brown, then add in the rice and toss well to mix.


Once rice is hot, divide it into your serving bowls and top with the cooked beef. Garnish with the green parts of the spring onion and serve immediately.


Feel free to cook the beef and rice in separate pans, at the same time.
