How To: Make Filipino beef nilaga (beef stew)

Make Filipino beef nilaga (beef stew)


1/3 cup ginger, crushed and sliced (approximate; use more or less depending on the amount of spice desired)

1 medium onion

3 cloves garlic

1 scallion (green onion)

3 lbs of beef tenderloin or flank (cubed)

1 head cabbage (wedged)

3 tomatoes, sliced

1 tsp peppercorns

6 quarts water

1 tsp salt

Combine beef, ginger, onions, garlic, scallion, tomatoes, water and peppercorn in a stock pot. Cook over medium heat for 30 minutes or until beef is tender.

(An alternative way is to use a pressure cooker to tenderize the beef before adding the rest of the ingredients.) When beef is tender, add cabbage. Simmer for 3 minutes or until cabbage is tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
