Nilagang Baka is a famous and savory beef soup with vegetables. It’s incredibly simple but healthy and’ll warm you up during the colder months. Beef Shank is generally used due to the flavor from the meat and the bones. This adds more richness and depth in the flavoring. The meat is first boiled for about an hour until it becomes tender. Potatoes, beans, corn and other vegetables are added for flavor as well as color and nutrients. Salt, peppercorns, and fish sauce are then added for a burst of flavor. Finally, cabbage is added to soften and you have yourself a delicious bowl of soup. Served with a side of rice and your tastebuds will be ever so satisfied!
