    • Slicing


1. Sauté garlic in oil until aromatic. Add the tapa and sauté until the tapa is browned.

3. Mix the sauce then add water. Let it simmer for 3 minutes. Pour over the cooked pasta and serve.

Chef's Tip

Use a large frying pan to sauté the tapa. This gives the tapa enough room to brown while sautéing. An over crowded pan causes the meat to release its juices so the meat ends up cooking in liquid and will take a long time to brown.
