Lutu-lutuan #14: Beef Pares

During my college days, I stayed at my Inang’s (what we call our grandma in my father’s side) place in Manila who lived with one of my titas. When Inang passed away, I stayed in the same house with my Tita and my sister who also started going to college at the time. Most of…

Lutu-lutuan #13: Bicol Express

Bicol express is one of my favorite Filipino dish. It’s spicy and I love food with coconut milk sauce. ❤ I chance upon an episode of Pinas Sarap show on TV and they said that Bicol Express was originally from Bicol as the name suggests. Vendors would sell the dish to passengers on train stations…

Lutu-lutuan #12: Chicken Adobo (Mama’s Style)

One of the classic Filipino dishes is adobo that we have a lot of variations of it – chicken adobo, pork adobo, adobong puti, adobo with boiled egg, adobo with pineapple, vegetable adobo (sitaw, kangkong, etc), adobong pusit, adobong galunggong… name it! 🙂 It should be an easy dish to cook but the key is…

Lutu-lutuan #11: Chicken Curry

  I asked in lutu-lutuan #8 post that if you have suggestions on what I should cook, you can let me know and as expected, some of my friends actually asked me to cook something. This is one of them. *** Chicken curry reminds me of Sundays during childhood. Nanay (as we call our grandmother on…

Lutu-lutuan #4 : Pork Sisig

Sisig is not a typical dish we would cook on a daily basis. But you can easily find a stall that’s selling this nowadays… a regular on karinderya’s and Filipino restaurants… and a favorite pulutan (food served to pair with alcoholic drinks) for Filipinos. I’m not sure how authentic sisig is being cooked, but the…

Lutu-lutuan #2: Kalderetang Baka (Beef Caldereta)

Earlier today, I asked my parents to confirm the ingredients and process for our second lutu-lutuan. When I told them that I started a blog to post recipes, they were more than delighted! I’m a natural tamad when I’m at home during weekends and having this blog would require me to cook at least. One…

Lutu-lutuan #1: Kanin (Rice)

Rice is the most common staple food in the Philippines. We have rice on our table for almost every meal of the day – breakfast, lunch, dinner! So I decided that my first post should be about rice. 😀   Rice : Water Ratio Regardless where you will cook rice – in a kaldero (steel…
