There Are So Many Wonderful Ways To Enjoy Bulalo

How much do you love bulalo?

As kids, some of us may not have instantly loved bulalo. Then there might be questions running in your head such as, “Kinakain mo ‘yung buto?” (You eat the bones?). 

But there’s so much more to bulalo. At its base is a good beef broth that easily reminds you of the taste of home, comfort, and other cozy words that warm you up from head to toe. Once your love for the beef broth is cemented, a slurp of the marrow only solidifies that love.

Bulalo, after all, is basically a bowl of nilaga made better because of the bone that’s simmered with the beef. It makes perfect sense why it’s so good because beef stock is really made from simmering the bones. So whether you’re boiling beef bones into a delicious rich broth or slurping every single drop of the bone marrow from that huge shank, you’re getting the very essence of beef. We’re getting hungry just thinking about it!

If you’re a bulalo fan like us, then you have to try the recipes below. You just have to, trust us.

2 Bulalo with Lemongrass Recipe

We love the marrow that comes with bulalo—it’s what makes the beef shank a favorite for soupy dishes. However, for some palates and maybe yours, it might come off as oily so let the fresh flavor of lemongrass give this version of the bulalo a lift, complementing the earthy, beefy soup.
