How to cook Kare-kare
Procedure and cooking instructions:
1. In a casserole, put the ox-tail with water, cover and let it boil for 15-20 minutes until the scums (dirt) comes out on the surface.
2. Dump the first boil, rinse the meat thoroughly and remove the dirt and fats (if you don't like it). Blanch the tripe in hot water, slice 1 inch diagonally or according to your size and set aside.
3. For the second time, boil the meat with enough water to cover. Add garlic, onion, pepper and salt when boiling.
4. Let it boil in a medium fire until the meat becomes tender.(it depends on how tender you like the meat).
5. After 1 hour of boiling meat add now the tripe. Mix the meat once in a while and add water if needed.
6. While stewing the meat, pour the rice in a hot pan and fry it until the rice becomes brown then grind it using mortar and pestle. For some because this has too much work, they rather use the flour mix in water to thicken the sauce.
7. When the meat is tender (approximately 2 hours), pour the ground toasted rice or flour, peanut butter, annatto oil and Mama Sita kare-kare powder (mix in water) to thicken the sauce and its soup now change in color. Then simmer for 10-15 minutes.
8. Add now all vegetables (except bok choy because this cooks easily than other veggies) and stir then let it simmer for another 10 minutes.
9. Put salt to taste but not too salty because these stew has the shrimp paste side dish to balance the taste when eating.
10. Add now the bok choy then cover the pot. After 5 minutes remove from heat in order not to overcook the vegetables.
11. Serve hot with shrimp paste and rice.
