Sinigang na Kamto, Beef Flank Sinigang

Sinigang na Kamto, Beef Flank Sinigang. One of the best part of the cow is the beef flank it is the abdominal part of the cow made up of layers of abdomen muscles thin tendons and fats. To Pinoy who are familiar with this beef cut it is usually cook as soup dish. It is also the preferred beef cut for beef pares. The combinations of beef muscles tendons and fats texture and the beefy flavours from slow cooking the beef make a good soup like sinigang. This was one of the dish I purposely cooked during my last trip in Manila.

Sinigang na Kamto

Cooking is basically the same to the usual beef sinigang. Similar to my other beef sinigang recipes the meat should be boiled till tender, or the meats start to fall apart but not overly cooked where the meat already disintegrate. For this sinigang I used the sinigang mixed for convenience but again you can always adopt to your preferred sinigang cooking method. Here is the recipe of my Sinigang na Kamto, Beef Flank Sinigang.
