1 bundle of sitaw (string beans) cut to 2" long

1/2 cup oil

4 cups of water

Salt to taste

Cooking Direction:

In a deep pot boil oxtails in water, 1 pc. bay leaf, 3 pcs. whole pepper and a pinch of salt for an hour or until cooked. Strain and keep the stock.

In a big pan or wok heat oil and atsuete oil.

***Serve the ox tail with the peanut sauce on the side or on top with bagoong on the side and hot plain rice. I like my bagoong with lemon juice. ***


  1. i love this, too--not too difficult if you're used to cooking stew. pressure cooker gid kinanglan..

  2. Nat ilog-ilog ko tani style sang Afriques nga i deep fried ang oxtail pero ang na buy ko nga oxtail waay panit.


    kanamit ba picture pa lang busog na ako hehehe.
    insoired gid man sa Afriques pati ang presentation.
    some restos use prok belly and they end up having "lechon kawali-kare kare"
    kanamit gid sang luto mo

  4. Jorp thanks gid my friend. I tried tani pero di ko gid feel nga i deep fried pa ang meat and it's better pag ang sauce sa side. May control ka sa ginakaon mo. Namit ang ginamos mga may lemon. mas namit guro kun kalamansi pero waay di kami.
    Grabe nga epekto sining blogging. Galingin kis a ulo ko paminsar sang something new nga lutuon bala hahaha

    mas healthy gid man kon indi fried, much less deep fried. very unusual gid man nag kare kare nga served separately since we all grew up with it being served in just one bowl hehee.
    lain gid man ang sabor sang lemon compared to calamansi. the latter being much more sour imo plus the fact we grew up with it esp for sawsawan. eehe
    hahaha grabe gid man nag blogging. at least pasalamat ang family mo they get to taste someting new plus the fact beingserved with nga lang they have to endure the waiting time while you take soem photos hehehe

  6. Jorp healthy tani pero mas namit gid ang fried pero kuwidaw kay since my last PI vacation waay na nanaog akon cholesterol plus ang weight? ay ambot nalang hahaha

    Some place here have calamansi. Amo di ya waay gid ah unless I use the powder kalamansi now sold sa local asian stores.

    Ang masakit Jorp (daw) tanan kami gatinambok. Ako I really watch what I eat. I just love to cook and watch them eat (kuno) lol.
