Filipino Food Fridays: Nilagang Manok

So I got a request to cook Nilagang Baka, and that is on my list of things to make, but I figured I’d start with Nilagang Manok because that was the recipe in my book. This was a very easy dish to make and it turned out very well!

This recipe was very kind to me. I try hard to follow recipes from start to finish and that doesn’t usually work out… Either the veggies aren’t cooked or I’m running behind because I’m still preparing veggies… But this time I had time in between steps to go on the internet and respond to comments that you folks have left for me!

And if Nilagang Baka is half as good as Nilagang Manok, then I’ll be making that soon! I had a couple of friends over and they had several plates of the Nilaga! Yay!

Maraming salamat!

  • Hi There! thanks for sharing your Filipino dishes:) It looks really good and must be delicious! I love cooking and I missed all the Filipino foods. Sometimes its hard to find all the ingredients so it does’nt look same as how you cook them. My kids love Filipino food too. Everyday I cooked them Mechado is one of my favorite which I learnt from my grandmother (lola ). Do you cook Mechado? My Mama thought me also the rest of the cooking that you posted here. Beef steak and Adobo (Bistik in our dialict) are my kids favorite too. You’re vedio looks like you have so much fun , so good luck to the rest of your cooking show. Thanks again. Regards, Janese

  • Hi Janese, my Lola made Mechado, beef steak and adobo while I was growing up! I miss those foods, and I plan to make each and every one of them! I have a blast making these videos because I’m learning how to cook, and I get to eat, but most important, it brings me closer to my Filipino culture.
