BULALO You do not need to exert much effort to prepare this dish. However, time and patience is necessary. The key in preparing good bulalo is all in the meat. You should choose the appropriate meat (we are using shanks) and make it as tender as possible. Simmering beef or any other meat for longer periods of time makes it tender and releases all of its flavor. This is probably the reason why traditionally cooked Filipino Recipes tastes better — time and patience is always part of the ingredient.
