Growing up as Filipino-American, I was able to enjoy several dishes inspired by both Asian and Spanish cultures. Filipino recipes are chock-full of flavor, whether savory, sweet, or both. Nilagang Baka, or Filipino Beef Soup, was one of my favorite dishes growing up, perfect for the chilly Fall weather and very filling!

Carl created this recipe because the margaritas we’ve had in many bars add too much sugar or sweet & sour mix. This covers the flavor of the alcohol and makes the drink too sweet for our taste. There are other tequilas and orange liquors to choose from, but Milagro Tequila and Cointreau Orange Liquor are our favorites.
A word of warning: Don’t drink too many – these are pretty powerful!
