In Spain, Judias Verdes is served as a starter. This is usually followed by a second dish which can be a meat or fish dish. But here in the Philippines, this can be served together as an accompaniment or a side dish to Salpicao, Baked or fried fish, Pollo Asado (Roast Chicken) and the like.
Beef Salpicado, though Spanish in influence, is not a dish you will find in Spain. It is just popular here in the Philippines (hence the use of soy sauce). Some people call the dish Beef Salpicao, simply because the word “salpicao” is a shortcut for “salpicado” which means “to spatter” or “to splash.”
