Happy 2018, my favorite people! I hope you all had a fantastic holiday season surrounded by everyone and everything you hold dear.

2017 definitely turned far more than I expected. As I wasn’t on top with posting new recipes as I should have, I was gnawing my nails all through the first half of December on whether I was going to meet my year-end traffic goals but like always, you guys floored me! I was amazed and completely humbled to see you all come in droves for holiday recipes and meal ideas.

If I haven’t said it before or if I don’t say it enough, I appreciate you. Thank you so much for your continued support of Kawaling Pinoy and for making it a part of your kitchen adventures. Here’s to New Year better than the previous!


Curry beef in a rich, curry-flavored coconut sauce is the perfect meal with steamed rice. With tender beef, potatoes, carrots and bell peppers, it's both hearty and delicious!

Since chicken curry was the most popular and most visited recipe of 2017, I thought I’ll expand the number of curry recipes on the blog with this beef curry today and a pork version in the next few days.

Like the chicken version, beef curry is hearty stew of meat, potatoes, carrots and bell peppers. Beef chunks are first seared for maximum flavor and then gently stewed in coconut milk and curry spices until fork-tender for a rich, tasty dish that’s perfect with steamed rice!

Tips on How to Make Filipino-style Beef Curry:

  • Cheaper, tougher cuts are best for the long, slow cooking process of beef stews. Skip leaner, pricier meats like tenderloin which turn tough and chewy and go for chuck or bottom round roast which break down well into tender, flavorful bites.
  • Pan-fry the potatoes and carrots to keep from falling apart when added to the stew.
  • For maximum flavor, adequately sear the beef.
  • When coconut milk is added, do not allow to boil to keep from curdling or separating.
