Stewed Beed in Peanut Butter Sauce (Beef Kare-kare)
1 In a pot, heat oil and saute garlic and onions until onions are translucent. Season with black ground pepper.
Add the beef and cook until light brown in color.
Add beef stock and bring to boil. Cover and simmer until beef is really tender or about 1-2 hours. (Add water if needed)
In a saucepan, stir fry the vegetables in garlic and shrimp paste until tender or about a minute and set aside.
Once beef is tender, turn off heat. Add brown sugar, toasted rice, peanut butter and water from the soaked annatto seeds into the pot. Mix until even in consistency. Turn on heat and let it boil.
Once boiling, turn heat to low and add the stir-fried vegetables.
Simmer for another 5 minutes.
Season with fish sauce if needed.
Serve hot with rice.
