There is one thing my mouth always craves, and it is the salty sweet taste of one of my husband's specialty dishes - oriental beef stew. He usually cooks this when we celebrate our anniversary, or if we have some friends over, and during special occasions like a birthday. We first tasted this when we ate at a Korean restaurant in Manila and we liked the taste. When we went home to Pampanga, my husband experimented with flavors until he had found the right recipe to replicate the stew we ate. Once he got the flavors he wanted, then he just replicated the recipe and served us with a mouthwatering dish. I do not really know the origin of oriental beef stew, but one thing I am sure of is that the soft and tender beef, with the beef soup that has the sweet and salty flavor, plus the noodles pack a powerful dish that we love and I am sure that you will too. The oriental beef stew that we tasted in Manila was spicier; since we have kids we cannot serve them a stew that is too hot and spicy. So, my husband re-engineered the broth to be sweet and salty for all types of people to enjoy, young or old. Let me share with you this simple recipe to prepare and cook oriental beef stew in the comfort of your home.
