Nilagang baka ( beef stew)= for me, this is the easiest way of cooking beef. Stewing in Asia is different from other continents. Stewing specially in Philippines uses only plain water or rice washing without putting any soup thickening ingredient like tomato sauce in some other countries. Simple and easy to prepare but the savor will surely satisfy your hunger.
Ingredients:1/2 kilo beef
1/4 kilo Chinese cabbage or pak choi
1 small size onion
a pinch of whole black pepper
8 glasses rice washing ( add water if necessary)
thumb size ginger
salt and pepper to taste
Procedure:1. In a pot put the rice washing, ginger, onion, and black pepper then bring it to a boil.
2. Put the beef and simmer until the meat is tender.
3. Increase the heat to high then add the Chinese cabbage, salt and pepper to taste and simmer for 2 minute.
4. Serve it hot.
