  1. diba ang bulayo ay may ginger/luya

  2. Pwede rin lagyan ng luya pero huwag marami.

  3. Anong recipe ng bulalo sa batAngas

  4. nilagyan ko ng 1 whole garlic and it tasted like bah kuh teh, a malaysian or singapore recipe

  5. We Ilocanos actually add garlic, we call it lauya…

  6. Hello ut-man! Maraming salamat for sharing your recipes sa mga matatakaw pero hindi marunong magluto tulad ko LOL. In gratitude allow me to share my family's twist on Bulalo - add 1 or 2 pcs of smoked pork hocks with the rest of the meat and boil/simmer together. This will add a smokiness and more complexity to the broth. Keep up the good work and thanks again.

  7. Thank you also for sharing your family's version. I may one day try it.

  8. anong pinagkaiba sa nilagang baka, diba ganito rin ang ingredients?Sa aking palagay ang bulalo ay walang vegies just a pure pata ng baka na may luya sibuyas paminta at kunting pampaasim.

  9. Ang bulalo po ay nilaga pa rin (nilagang pata/bulalo) pwede rin pong lagyan ng gulay par mas masarap.
