    Curry rice:
    200 g Rice
    1 pinch Salt
    1 tbsp Soy sauce
    1 tbsp Curry powder

    100 g Beef short plate, thinly sliced
    50 g Onion, thinly sliced
    30 g Red bell pepper, thinly sliced
    50 g Young corn, boiled
    20 g Kare-kare mix
    100 ml Water

    Cooking Directions:
    1. To make curry rice, heat oil in a pan and fry the rice.
    2. Season with salt, curry powder, and soy sauce according to taste.
    3. To make kare-kare, saute the beef short plate, onion, and red bell pepper in a separate pan.
    4. Once partially cooked, add the water and kare-kare mix and simmer for about five minutes.
    5. When the kare-kare is cooked, serve with curry rice topped with boiled young corn in a bowl.

    Cooking tips: Slicing vegetables thinly makes them cook faster, allowing you to save time. Fatty cuts such as beef short plate is better than lean meat such as rump in rich, flavorful dishes such as kare-kare.
