Nilagang Baka

Nilagang baka has always been one of my favorite dishes. Mike has always said that our yaya makes a great "clean version". I think I make a "messier" one. I just pop everything in the pressure cooker and leave it be. The result is a hearty, flavorful soup that will warm you up in an instant.

To make this yourself, you'll need:
beef cubes, pressure cooker-ed until soft
salt and pepper
fish sauce

Pour a bit of oil in the pressure cooker. Add garlic and onions and brown the beef. Add salt and pepper, then pour it water. I like putting a lot of water since I feel that it gives the soup more chance to have concentrated flavors. Add the celery and cover the pressure cooker and let cook for about 40-60 minutes. 

Release the pressure, open the lid, then add the potatoes and corn and let boil until cooked. Taste the soup to see if it is to your liking. I usually add fish sauce to add flavor. Once done, turn off the heat, add the cabbage and cover with the lid for a few minutes more.

This is best enjoyed hot with a cup of rice.
