Come dine with me -My Filipino Recipe (Beef Sinigang Soup )

in #food4 years ago (edited)

Dear Steemians,

How are you? I hope everyone is doing great. Today I wanted to share one of my favorite filipino dish. It's called Beef Sinigang Soup ( Beef Sour Tamarind Soup). You can use pork or shrimp as well if you like it more. Back in the Philippines, my grandma would always cook this for us. Living abroad for almost 8 years, I still and will always miss Filipino foods. Good thing, there is a Filipino store here in the city. So if I'm not busy with taking care of the baby I love cooking Filipino dishes that remind me of home.


Prep time : 15 minutes
Cook time : 2 hour 30 mins
Total Time : 2 hours 45 mins
Yield : 8-10 servings

Ingredients :

4 pounds lean beef steak, thorougly washed
10-12 cups water
medium onion, peeled and diced
3-4 tablespoon fish sauce
2 tomatoes, halves
1/2 pound fresh green beans, rinsed and trimmed
3 eggplants cut into halves, rinsed
1/2 pound okras, heads and ends trimmed
1/2 medium head bok choy, cut into 1 1/2 inch strips
1 package of tamarind soup base
Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat oil in a medium pot. Add onion and garlic until browned.

  2. Once they're browned, I then added the tomatoes.

  3. Add beef to pot and saute until browned. Add fish sauce until and saute another 2 minutes.



4. Pour in water and bring it to a boil in low to medium heat.

5. While I was waiting for it to boil, I prepared and cut the vegetables. Then I washed them thoroughly.

Green beans




Bok choy

6. Once I was done cutting the vegetables, the water is already boiling. Then let it simmer for 45 minutes to an hour and half or until beef is tender. You can add more water to maintain about 10 cups.


My husband @sevenstars usually plays piano for me while I'm cooking. It makes me feel relaxed.

7. Once meat is tender, add green beans. Continue to cook about 2-3 minutes.

8. Add okra and eggplant and cook for another 2 minutes.

9. Then add the soup mix. For me, I used the whole package. Add into pot and stir until completely dissolved. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

10. Add bok choy and continue to cook for about 1 minute.

And there you go. It's ready. You can eat it with rice. I love rice so I eat mine with it.


I hope you guys enjoy it. Till next time :)




That looks really good, and now that fall is fast approaching, that means it time for more soup for dinner and oatmeal for breakfast!!! Nice post.

You're right! Nothing beats nice hot soup on a cool fall day. :) I hope you'll try making this soup for yourself, and if you do let me know how you like it!

Oh my, lean beef... so healthy you are... The best protein with sinigang and i'm sure you will agree with me is when you use pork belly. Mmmm.... but we have to look after our health and sexiness, so thumbs up.....

hehe. my husband and I we both love beef that's why. But I love pork belly tooo. 👌

Yum yum! It was delicious. Thanks for cooking it for me.

hahahaha. You are always welcome ❤

Perfect mate for steam rice especially during rainy season! Pinch some hot pepper... wow! Sarap! Ginutom ako!

Yes 😍 tama. Kain tayo :)
