Beef stew is a popular recipe in many cultures. It is not uniquely a Filipino recipe, but is a close cousin to igado, menudo, and many beef based dishes. The primary difference in this recipe is that no tomato sauce is used. Also, note that if you want the stew thicker, corn starch can be added. Beef stew is relatively easy to prepare and is a delicious dish for any family.
