Beef pares is a common Filipino street food consisting of stewed beef brisket. Beef pares is served with a simple beef stock soup and often a bed of steamed white rice to soak up its sauce. The aroma of beef pares is powerful and sweet due to the star anise and ginger used in the recipe. Its flavor is rich and meaty with mild vegetable undertones, reflecting the white and green onion in the dish. Approximately three hours is required to cook beef pares.
