Nilagang Baka (Beef Soup)

My 6 year old daughter calls Nilaga as “Nigala” until now. She got used to it though she knows how to say it properly already she still prefers to call it the way she used to call it ever since. It is one of her favorite filipino dish. Her appetite is remarkable when she eats nilaga. This is a very ideal dish during winter, though in the Philippines, we eat Nilaga no matter what the weather is. Sharing this hot dish with family makes it more meaningful. Eat Nilaga with hot rice and fish sauce with calamansi or lemon on the side to compromise beef’s after taste…

1 kg beef soup bones
