A lot of people are asking for this RECIPE.... That is the reason I wanted to share mine.  This is one of the most famous food available in the Philippines and its everywhere...But very few will actually give you the right recipe for it. ;) But I will!


1/2 kilo beef brisket or camto boiled until tender ( about 1 1/2 hour depending on the thickness of the meat...preferably slow cooked, reserve the broth)

1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup sugar

For Sauteing:
2 tbsp ginger
1 cloves garlic crushed
1 medium size onion chopped

4 cups beef broth
2 pieces star anise
sesame seeds or oil (optional)
1 - tsp flour (optional )

Boil meat until tender, reserve the broth.
Marinate the tender beef brisket on the marinade ingredients for 30 minutes.... Set aside.
 After 30 minutes or so...

Saute ginger, garlic and onion ... while doing this ... drain the meat from its marinade, put them in the pan and saute for 5 to 10 minutes... till it dries up and its just oil sizzling the meat...
 Pour the beef broth and let simmer. About 15 minutes. Put the remaining  soy sauce marinade and simmer for another 5 minutes. Put 1-2 pcs of star anise... simmer some more... check your meat. When the meat is very tender dissolve the flour in 1/4 cup water then mix this gradually to the simmering beef while stirring to avoid forming lumps( Do this only if u want the sauce to be  a bit thick.) Let simmer until flour taste is gone. 
Season according to your taste. If u want it to be more sweet u can always add additional sugar . That's it! This will taste better the next day folks...

Why is this called BEEF PARES?

Pares literally means "PAIR"... because this meat dish is best served warm with fried rice   ( i liked mine with lots of toasted garlic and spring onions on top) and beef soup   (i like mine spicy so i preferred it with chili garlic oil.)

How to make beef soup?

Using some of the reserved broth u can modify the taste by using beef cubes, some black pepper and salt to taste... let simmer....and put some spring onion on top... and while its hot serve immediately...

I just tried this earlier, great recipe! Your suggestion of having this with chili garlic oil is dead on right.
