Beef Pares Recipe
Beef Pares
Pinoy Braised Beef

Pares, often called beef pares, is a braised beef dish that originated in the Philippines. Literally meaning "pair", this dish is a combination of a beef stew viand and  a light beef broth soup, both served with rice. Some less popular variations of the dish are rice-topping versions.

The stew is made with beef cutlets cooked in sweet soy sauce and anise, topped with spring onions. Very tender beef and a sweet seasoned sauce are the distinguishing characteristics of this dish. The soup is made by combining a portion of the stew sauce with some pre-cooked soup stock.
