Beef Kare Kare with Garlic RiceChef Anna Olson: “I discovered Kare Kare on my very first trip to the Philippines. I loved the intense aroma and the richness of the sauce, and it inspired me to prepare it at home. If I’m looking for a more casual way to serve it, especially if I’ve made the dish the day before, I serve my Kare Kare beef as a burrito. Since this isn’t readily available here in Canada, I use paprika – it adds a nice colour and is very tasty without being spicy.”
Beef Short Ribs SinigangThis dish has a lovely fresh flavour from the mango and fresh tomatoes. Slightly exotic but made from basic ingredients. It is best to cut the short ribs into ¾ inch cubes when making as a starter course, but if making for the main, it is kind of nice to leave the short ribs in the big chunks as they come.
