Beef Kare Kare
A traditional dish, Kare-Kare is a Filipino party favorite. It is made with oxtail, beef tripe (tuwalya) and vegetables cooked in thickened peanut gravy but our version minus the oxtails and tripe and just beef.
The dish is yellow-orange in color and is made by using the hot oil steeped with achuete or annatto seeds. The sauce is flavored with ground peanuts and thickened by rice grains that have been toasted and powdered. Kare-Kare is served with sauteed shrimp paste(bagoong). It's a perfect dish to pair with Crispy Pata (deep fried Pork Knuckles). Nowadays, you can make this dish vegetarian or even seafood style. And also, I think it’s more practical to use peanut butter instead of toasting and grounding the peanuts.
