Beef Nilaga – Chayote Recipes



This is another one-meal-in-a-pot dish. It contains soup, meat and vegetables all cooked together in one delicious broth. Terrific during cooler weather. Serve hot alone or with rice.

Ingredients

  • 4 1/2 pounds beef short ribs
  • 1 quart water
  • 1 tablespoon black peppercorns, crushed
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 beef bouillon cubes
  • 2 carrots, cut in chunks
  • 2 stalks celery, quartered
  • 1 chayote squash, peeled and quartered
  • 2 potatoes, quartered
  • salt to taste
  • 1/4 head cabbage, cut into wedges

Directions

  1. Place the beef ribs in a large pot with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil over high heat, and boil for 5 minutes. Drain; discard the cooking water (the ribs will not be fully cooked).
  2. Return the beef to the pot. Pour in the 1 quart water, peppercorns, onions, and beef bouillon. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce the heat, and simmer for 1 hour.
  3. Skim any fat floating on the surface. Stir in the carrots, celery, chayote, and potatoes; cover, and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes. Season with salt. Add cabbage and cook an additional 5 minutes.
