Filipino Beef Stew (Sinigang Na Carne)

Print PrintShare with Friends


Sinigang is a famous Filipino dish, typically sour, that can be made with chicken, beef, pork, shrimp or fish. Usually prepared with tamarind or less commonly with guava or mango. This one is a mix of beef & pork and gets it's sourness from lemon juice, making it quite different from most other sinigang recipes I've seen.
