Filipino Kitchen is proud to present this recipe of Sunda executive chef Jess DeGuzman's favorite dish from childhood, kare kare, paired with arroz caldo, or rice porridge.
The idea of adobo Filipino-style is that you simultaneously marinade and cook down the meat so its essences flavor the sauce.
Lugaw is a Filipino rice porridge. Lugaw works as an excellent base for any kind of meat or seasonings, similar to congee. When you’re sick it’s perfect: warm, filling, and mushy. You don’t even have to chew very much. I like my lugaw with chicken, ginger and lemon.
We've replicated this leche flan recipe (a few tweaks are noted) with permission from our friends at Panlasang Pinoy! Salamat po sa inyo!
We like the frozen ube by Tastee because the desired halaya consistency is easy to render. The halaya should hold together well and come away from the sides of the pot as you stir it. It's easy to find in your local Filipino or Asian grocery store.
