Easy Japanese Recipes

Kare Kare – Guest Post by Ang Sarap

Kare Kare Recipe | JustOneCookbook.com While I’m visiting my family in Japan, I have asked several blogger friends to blog-sit for me and today’s sitter is Raymund from Ang Sarap (A Tagalog word for “It’s Delicious”).  He’s my last guest blogger during my trip.

I told Raymund once that if I ever become a billionaire (not a millionaire haha), I would want to hire him as my private chef.  The main reason why I said that is because he posts delicious food almost everyday, and they are not just Filipino dishes but include many other international recipes as well.  When you visit his blog and see the category list on the right hand side, you will immediately see cuisine’s names there.  As of today, he has made dishes from 55 different countries.  Me?  Maybe less than 8-10 if “non-authentic” recipes counts! 

Since I started blogging, I learned that my Filipino food blogger friends (male and female) are passionate about food, just like Ray whom I introduced to you last week.  That’s probably the reason why we don’t see too many Filipino restaurants even in a big city; they are all cooking at home for the family!

Now please welcome Raymund with a popular Filipino stew called Kare Kare.

*****

Raymund This is my third time to guest post, I know it is not a lot but there is a popular saying which is “third time lucky” and indeed that true as I am invited in this blog, definitely one of my favourite food blog sites around.   So let me first tell something about me before the recipe that I will be sharing.

Well my name is Raymund and I am the person behind the blog called Ang Sarap (A Tagalog word for “It’s Delicious”) , I am an Software Developer / Architect by profession and my passion is to cook, travel and take photographs (isn’t that the best combination).  I’ve been cooking since I was 7 years old and since then I have been cooking my family dinners. I’ve travelled a bit and lived in different countries due to my profession hence I have a good grasp of local the different cuisines which is very evident on my blog.

The blog is nearly two years now and it has a good reception in the food blog circle as well as Filipino communities around the world.  It showcases dishes basically from everywhere but with Filipino, Spanish and Chinese twist which are the primary influence in the Philippine cuisine.  The goal of my blog is to educate people with what Philippines have to offer in terms of culinary arts and like I said in my past posts why Philippines is the only Asian country without an identity or even representation, what I mean by that is you have the Malaysian, Singaporean, Vietnamese, Indian, Japanese and Thai but where is the Philippines, it is even known? That’s what I want to change, and I hope I can start with this blog.  Now I guess that’s enough about me and if you want to know further please follow my blog and start learning about what you are missing if you haven’t tried Filipino dishes yet.

For this guest post I was thinking of introducing something very uniquely Filipino and it was hard choosing it as I don’t want to present something that might be already popular like the Adobo or a dish that might be Filipino but tastes something similar in other neighbouring countries like Sinigang.  So after several sleepless nights I think Kare-kare might be a good dish to showcase as I never had tasted or seen something like this elsewhere.

Kare-kare is a popular stew in Philippines that is served on special occasions like Feast Days (fiesta), Birthdays and family gatherings. The dish’s defining ingredient is its peanut sauce which is made out of peanut butter, ground toasted rice and annatto seed extract this is then cooked with variety of local vegetables and meat (usually ox tail or ox tripe). It’s a bit pale in taste compared to other rich Philippine dishes that’s why it is often always accompanied with a salty shrimp paste called bagoong.

This dish probably had originated from Pampanga as it is really popular there and every household in the said province offer this as their specialty and have their own better versions that stand out among the others but there are also some suggestions that it originated from the Southern island of Mindanao where this dish is popular as well, it was said that this is one of the regal dishes of the Moro elite who settled in Manila even before the Spanish arrival. Another suggestion says that it has a Japanese influence as the name “Kare-Kare” is derived from the Japanese word “Kare” which is a Japanese word for curry.   So where this dish did really came from? Well I don’t really know but most experts say it was from Pampanga also called the culinary capital of the Philippines.

I guess this is not for everyone due a lot of people has allergies over nuts and if you don’t have one you might freak out with the part of beef used.  But if you are adventurous in food, this is a must try especially for those who loves peanut butter, you will feel good about this dish.

    It is so nice to see Filipino food in a Japanese blog. Ang Sarap is one blog that makes me terribly home sick and desperately hungry. Just look at that kare kare! I rarely cook this because it is hard to find oxtail. It is one dish that one can’t dislike. Have you had bagoong, Nami? It is the essential condiment for this dish and it just would’t right without it. Continue to enjoy your holiday, Nami.

    • Raymund April 16, 2012, 2:50 am

      Usually when I have hard time finding for some oxtail, I resort to Beef Neck Bones they are nearly the same in texture or even if you are a bit adventurous you can also try beef tripe but I guess that would be harder to find :)

    I have to admit that I had to look up annatto seeds. :) The description said that the flavor was sweet and peppery, which is my favorite taste combination! Ox tail, peanut butter and rice – that’s a new one on me. It sounds delicious especially with all of the other flavors and veggies that you add. A beautiful recipe! Thanks for introducing it to me, and Nami – thanks for introducing us to Raymund!

    Reply
    • Raymund April 16, 2012, 11:29 am

      Actually annatto does not give much flavour unless you use heaps, Filipinos use this just for colour so a normal orange food colour can be used if you cant find annatto.

    I was in the dark about Philippine dishes (as I was about Japanese food before I found Nami’s site too) and it’s really nice to know more about fellow Asian dishes. When I read the name kare kare, I thought the word must derive from curry. So nice to know that I was right. Haha. :) Very beautiful dish.

    Reply
    • Raymund April 17, 2012, 12:44 pm

      You are correct some experts say that the name was derived from the Japanese word (カレー karē), though not proven it makes sense as the Japanese curry has a similar colour and we have a lot of influence as well from the Japanese.

Ingredients list are also quite short, though i probably need to hunt down annato seeds. And oxtail used to be so cheap but now, because everyone knows how delicious it is, it’s actually quite expensive! I read in the comments that you suggested beef neck too, will try that!
