  • 1 With these three simple steps, you will be able to craft a hearty Nilaga dish. Its warm soup mixed with chunks of meat and veggies makes for a filling meal that is best served to family. Here’s how you begin: Prepare a pot or casserole that will be big enough to fit your 5 cups of water, half a kilo of beef, onions, corn and black peppercorn. Turn the heat up to high. When you see big bubbles in the water, it’s time to cover the pot and turn your heat low. But when your fork does not stick to the meat when inserted, it means your beef is tender. This is a technique to check if the beef is done.
  • 2 You may now throw in your potatoes and saba. Cover your pot and cook until these become tender.
  • 3 Add in your Knorr Beef cubes and stir well. Put in the leafy veggies: cabbage and pechay and cook for another minute.
  • 4 Be the hero of the day as you serve this comforting meal to your family. Best to serve it with a big bowl of white rice and a little saucer of patis and calamansi.
