The word “tagine” refers both to the earthenware dish with a cone-shaped lid AND the stew that is made within it. You don’t need this dish to make the stew – a heavy-bottomed pot with a good lid will do the trick, producing an aromatic beef stew with a contrast of sweet and savoury flavours within it.
Chef 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.”
