Kare-Kare is one of our family’s favorite ulams! Syempre we have different versions — Chicken Kare-Kare, Kare-Kareng Nguso (ng Baka), Vegetarian Kare-Kare, Kare-Kareng Pata but my kids favorite remains to be Kare-Kareng Bagnet. Maybe because they really love crispy fried pork belly and when you combine it with the savory peanut sauce of kare-kare,. Ay naku! Talaga naman, it becomes a whole other dish.
I made this Magical Kare-Kareng Bagnet over the holidays kasi this was requested by Twinkle and Ykaie to be one of our ulams. Syempre ginamitan ko ng konting magic and I used the easy recipe at Maggi.ph.
To those of you who are intimidated to cook Kare-Kare but wants to try it, watch the video and check out the recipe…
