Nilagang Baka (Home Cookin’)

Easter is here! That means Lent is officially over, and I am reunited with the love of my life… MEAT. It feels so good! To celebrate my 46 days without beef, pork, or whiskey, I prepared my favorite meal ever: Nilagang Baka (also known as Nilaga). It is really simple to make and SO DELICIOUS. Please see mouth-watering photos below. Short ribs, I’ve missed you!
