Food Friday - Nilaga

One of the very few dishes that takes me a step closer to home.

I used to cook this dish with whatever is available, meaning, beef and bulalo plus chinakohl (chinese cabbage of the pekinensis type) but whenever I get the chance to visit the asia shop, I buy bok choi (petsay though also under the chinese cabbage family), plaintains (saba) and sweet corn...The saba however are bottled and sweetened, unfortunately, hard to bite too. I had to separately boil them in water before dropping them down the big pot.

Served with rice, another meal to enjoy in this cold season!

We cook ours differently but I looooove this dish! Especially if we add the bone marrow...yummmm! I know it's full of cholesterol but we cook this once in a while and it's yummy! :D
