Bulalo is a type of beef soup that is popular in the Philippines. This beef soup recipe is made using beef shank. It is important to use shank in making Bulalo because of the large bones attached to it. These bones contain marrows, which makes this dish very likeable.
I love to eat Bulalo, but I make sure that I don’t have it in a regular basis for health reasons. As they say, too much of a good thing is bad for you – eating Bulalo in moderation is always recommended. The thing that I like most about Bulalo is the bone marrow. I usually get the largest bone that I can have. I extract the marrow using a bamboo skewer (bbq stick) and eat it with white rice, along with a dip made-up of fish sauce, lemon (or calamansi), and birds eye chili (siling labuyo). Sounds delicious, isn’t it?
A beef soup comprised of shank with bone marrow still inside the bone, Bulalo is considered to be one of the most favorite main dishes in the Philippines. Minimal effort is needed to prepare this dish but time and patience is necessary to make the beef shank tender.
