beef pares

I didn’t know why it’s called beef pares until I searched for this recipe. Pares literally means “pair” in English. As this dish is best eaten  with a pair of garlic fried rice  and beef soup. Another sure hit to my taste  buds and to my family too.

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs. beef brisket, uncut
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 3 pcs. star anise
  • 1 tsp ginger, minced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 stalk green onion,  chopped (for garnishing)
  • Salt to taste
For the soup:
  • 3 stalks green onions, cut into 2-inch length
  • 1 medium size onion, quartered
  • ½ head garlic, chopped
  • 1 pc beef cube
  • 1 tsp peppercorns
  • 1 stalk green onions, finely chopped (for garnishing)

Procedure:
1. Place the beef in a big sauce pan. Add enough water to cover the meat (about 2L) and bring to a boil over medium low heat until scum appears on the surface. Clear the scum off the broth.
2. Add all the soup ingredients except the green onions for garnishing. Add salt to taste. Cover the saucepan. Adjust heat to low and simmer for 1 to 2 hours or until the beef is tender.
3. When the meat is tender, remove from the sauce pan and allow to cool down.
4. Meanwhile, transfer the broth to another sauce pan, leaving about 2 cups of it in the original sauce pan. The broth in the new sauce pan will be the soup. Simmer over low heat until ready to serve.
5. Slice the beef in cubes and return to original sauce pan.
6. Add the soy sauce, sugar, bay leaf, star anise, ginger, and black pepper. Season with salt to suit your taste.
7. Bring to a boil and simmer over low heat until the sauce thickens that is about 15-20 minutes.
8. Serve with garlic fried rice and the reserved beef soup. Garnish beef stew and soup with chopped green onions.
