Kare Kare - Pinoy Food

Kare Kare by tanyaregala.
Kara Kare is one of the most popular dish here in the Philippines. It is one of the most eaten Pinoy foods by the Filipinos. It is best if partnered with Bagoong Alamang (Shrimp paste) or you can't just eat it without the Alamang. Some Kare Kare recipes make this Pinoy food Bagoong Alamang ready by adding the Alamang right after the Kare Kare is cooked.

But that kind of recipe is not recommended by me. Because for me, the Bagoong Alamang should be separated to the main dish to control the saltiness of Pinoy food. Below is the recipe of Kare Kare.

1 kilo of beef (round or sirloin cut) cut into cubes, beef tripe or oxtail (cut 2 inch long) or a combination of all three (beef, tripe and oxtail)
3 cups of peanut butter
1/4 cup grounded toasted rice
1/2 cup cooked bagoong alamang (anchovies)
2 pieces onions, diced
2 heads of garlic, minced
4 tablespoons atsuete oil
4 pieces eggplant, sliced 1 inch thick
1 bundle Pechay (Bok choy) cut into 2 pieces
1 bundle of sitaw (string beans) cut to 2" long
1 banana bud, cut similar to eggplant slices, blanch in boiling water
1/2 cup oil
8 cups of water
Salt to taste

In a stock pot, boil beef, tripe and oxtails in water for an hour or until cooked. Strain and keep the stock.
In a big pan or wok, heat oil and atsuete oil.
Sauté garlic, onions until golden brown, then add the stock, toasted rice, beef, oxtail and peanut butter. Bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes. Salt to taste.
Add the eggplant, string beans, pechay and banana bud. Cook the vegetables for a few minutes - Do not overcook the vegetables.
Serve with bagoong on the side and hot plain rice.
