Tuyosilog (dried fish, egg and fried rice)

tuyo(dried fish)………….It’s a common breakfast dish for Filipinos.  It is best accompanied by a saute’d tomatoes, onions and eggs and off course the fried rice. While the dried fish is best dipped into a vinegar sauce with chillies. Believe me, after eating a lot of good food this holiday seasons, you will miss to eat this simple kind of meal. This is the last member of the “SILOG” family. to have a recap, I already posted chiksilog (chicken), Tocilog (pork) and more. I just bought the fish that I used here, because the last time I am trying to make a dried fish, the birds ate it all. It is usually cured by putting a lot of salt and let it dry under the sun for about 2-3 days. ……………..Did you know that dried fish is a completely natural product that retains the antioxidant and omega-3 benefits of fresh fish, while constituting a healthy and widely available food for both people and dogs. Fish helps to mitigate the occurrence of heart attacks and keeps the body’s circulation functioning well. Dried fish also provides an excellent source of protein with fewer calories than other foods such as beef. Most dried fish contains little salt or cholesterol while being high in essential vitamins and minerals. It also is low in saturated fat, which is known to aggravate or cause heart and blood-pressure problems……..

Tapsilog (cured beef)

Tapsilog………….Another member of the “SILOG FAMILY”. For those who doesn’t know yet is – the word “SI” is for fried rice(sinangag) and “LOG” is for egg (Itlog). Then we add the first syllable of the meat name like this “TAP” for tapa (beef) and then the “SILOG” that makes it TAPSILOG. Again, for the recap. I already posted Tocilog, Chicksilog and more of them coming soon. This breakfast dish is best served with achara. It is very similar to Pork steak ala pobre and pork steak tagalog , beef steak because they are using soy sauce and garlic as their main ingredients. This is the most popular breakfast in the Philippines, I think every restaurant that serves breakfast offer this on their menu even in TURU-TURU(small cafe, cafeteria), Pares and Mami House and many more. It is the best cured meat because we dont use preservative…………..Did you know that beef is a good source of zinc, which is helpful for preventing the damage to blood vessel walls, which can contribute to atherosclerosis and is also needed for the proper functioning of immune system. Beef is also rich in phosphorous and iron. Phosphorous is necessary for strong teeth and bones and Iron helps carry oxygen in the blood, to all cells and muscles and prevents fatigue…………
