How to Make Beef Sinigang (Filipino Dish)

Posted by Jane at 2:50 PM
so i decided to make a post on how i make my sinigang which is a sour filipino soup.

some of you may have seen me posting pictures while making this so i decided to give out the recipe for those of you who were curious as how i made it! (=

you will need..
- meat (i used beef chuck but you can also use chuck roast, beef sirloin, beef brisket, or beef ribs)
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 2 large roma tomatoes, chopped
- 8-10 coffee cups of water -- this will be your soup (2 in the beginning &the rest for the end or to your preference)
- 6 tablespoons of fish sauce (2 in the beginning &the rest for the end or to your preference)
- 1-2 packet(s) knorr flavoring mix (i like the na may sili b/c i want my SOUR but you can also use the gabi one too)
- string beans (i like to use the long chinese ones &cut it up to bite size pieces)
- okra, tops &buttoms cut off (15 pieces or however many you would like to put)
- 1 daikon radish, sliced
- spinach
- 2 jalapenos

i used beef chuck &because it is a thick meat you wanna start by tenderizing the meat. normally you would use a pressure cooker for this but since i don't own one i use 2 large metal spoons to do this. add 2 coffee cups of water, spoons, chopped tomatoes &onions &2 tablespoons of fish sauce to a large pot &boil for about 40 minutes-1 hour. check on the meat ever 15 mins or so to see if it has tenderized already meaning that it is soft enough to bite into, once it is soft enough you can go on to the cook the soup.

if you have a pressure cooker it should be a lot faster to tenderize the meat.

while you wait for the meat to tenderize you can go ahead and cut up all your vegetables.

once the meat is tenderized -- you can remove the spoons, add up to 8 more coffee cups of water depending on how much soup you would like. then go ahead and add the 4 remaining tablespoons of fish sauce with your 1 or 2 packet(s) knorr flavoring mix depending on your preference. then add your vegetables string beans, okra, sliced daikon radish, and 2 jalapenos. let it boil for 30 mins &add your spinach at the very end for 5-10 minutes until it has wilted.

..&you have sinegang!
ENJOY!! (=
