Beef in Tamarind Broth (Beef Sinigang)
1 In a pot, boil the tamarind fruit with water, about 4 cups, until tender.
Transfer the tender tamarind to a bowl and then mash with the back of a spoon until juices come out.
Put it back in the pot and stir. Strain the contents of the pot and set aside the strained tamarind broth in a clean pot.
In a heated pan or grill, sear the beef cubes on all sides.
Add the beef, green chillies, tomatoes, onion and taro into the pot with the tamarind broth and bring to boil until taro is cooked.
Add the string beans and okra. Simmer for 3 minutes.
Season with fish sauce and the spinach leaves.
Simmer for another 5 minutes.
