WATCH: This Ilonggo Recipe Is Sinigang And Bulalo In One!

This recipe marries the flavors of the beefy bulalo and the sourness of sinigang.

What do you get when you mix bulalo and sinigang into one dish? Kansi! This Bacolod-original recipe is a regional recipe that you can only get in that area but we’ve discovered that there is a great substitute for the ingredients. 

How do you make kansi? 

If you know how to make bulalo and if you know how to make sinigang, you know how to make kansi. The process is almost the same! You will need bulalo or beef shank that’s been tenderized in broth. You’ll add a souring agent – the local batuan fruit, if you can get your hands on some or use kamias or sampaloc if you can’t – and you practically have made kansi.  

It’s the Pinoy food mashup you are going to want to try! Here’s the recipe:

If you’re wondering how to cook bulalo without a pressure cooker, just fill up a large pot and fill with enough water to cover the meat as per the recipe. Bring it to a boil then simmer. You will have to keep adding water as it evaporates as the water simmers and the meat tenderizes. Keep an eye on the water level so you don’t run out. 

Once the beef is tender, continue with the recipe as directed. It will take longer but the result is well worth the wait.
