How to cook Beef Kare kare

Kare-kare  is made from peanut sauce with a variety of vegetables, stewed oxtail, beef, and occasionally offal or tripe.  Meat variants may include goat meat, chicken or rarely fish. It is often eaten with bagoong (shrimp paste), sometimes spiced with chili, and sprinkled with calamansi juice. Traditionally, any Filipino fiesta particularly in the province of Pampanga  is not complete without the kare-kare dish.
