Beef Nilaga is a classic Filipino soup dish that is very easy to prepare. This one-pot soup recipe contains beef and vegetables like potatoes, cabbage, and pechay leaves. It uses basic ingredients that you can easily find in groceries.

 

4 cups water
1/2 kilo beef brisket, cut into 2-inch cubes
2 medium onions, quartered
