Kare Kare is a traditional Filipino stew complimented with a thick savory peanut sauce. The commonly used meats for this dish are ox tail, tripe, and pork leg; on some occasions goat and chicken meat are also used.

Traditionally, “palayok” (clay cooking pot) is used to cook this dish and it is also used as the serving pot.
