Beef Humba



My husband is a picky eater.As an american, he used to eat instant food from the box or in can. When I introduced him to Filipino way of cooking from scratch he was amazed and couldn't believe it. For us it is normal but for him or for the Americans it is a  big deal. To cook like a chef or as he was always saying "a gourmet chef" is something. His tongue is not familiar with our food so I tried so much to cook  it according to his taste but in a Filipino way. Humba is one  of  his favorite dish. I used beef instead of pork for this recipe.


Ingredients:
  • 1 kilo beef - cut into small pieces or slice.
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 sprig oregano
  • 2 bay leaf
  • 2 tbsp black beans or tausi( adjust the salt if you used salted black beans)
  • 2 tbsp fat or cooking oil.
  • salt and pepper to taste.
  • 2 tbsp white wine(optional)
Mix all the ingredients except  black beans and cook until beef is tender. Add more water if needed. Lastly, add the tausi/black beans.Season to taste. Serve hot.

  11. Good thing he likes Filipino food. Wait, Beef Humba is like Adobo but has beef as main ingredient, right?
