Braised Beef Bulalo With Chorizo And Mushrooms Recipe

Bold flavors from the chorizo and shiitake join this hearty bulalo dish.

Beef bulalo is usually a soup dish with simmered cabbage and pechay, sometimes with potatoes and sitaw to make it even heartier with more vegetables. While this is a comforting and already delicious meal, there are more ways to cook bulalo than just cooking it in a broth. 

Here, this bulalo recipe is braised and stewed until soft and tender. It’s made even more flavorful with chunks of chorizo to add a spiciness and shiitake mushrooms to give it a more beefy flavor as well as a boost in umami. You’re going to need more rice than usual with this recipe!
