Filipino Beef Nilaga
Panlasang Pinoy has come up with another beef recipe called Nilagang Baka but this time it’s a soup with vegetables in it. Definitely this soup can be best enjoyed on a cold or rainy day or night. If you have been following Panlasang Pinoy's videos, you would find a lot of similarity in the cooking method. It starts with sautéing, simmering and serving. The only effort here would be to keep your eyes open if you don't understand Filipino.
