This version of chicken noodle soup is more more creamy and delicious. Because we don’t have much time to cook, we wanted our chicken and noodle soup recipe to be fast and easy to prepare. I made my own version that is very simple and yet, it still brings out the warmth and comfort you’re looking for in a dish.

ampalaya con carne | Yummy Filipino Recipe's

ampalaya con carne

Ampalaya con Carne

Ampalaya con Carne is a dish composed of beef strips and ampalaya – this is also known as beef with ampalaya. This is perfect for those who wish to eat ampalaya but cannot handle the bitterness. The beef acts as a neutralizing agent; it covers the bitterness with its flavorful juices.
I was one of those who dislike the bitterness of ampalaya. I only enjoyed eating it when I learned the proper technique of extracting the bitterness out (which I demonstrated in the Ginisang Ampalaya video). There is a negative side to it though; that means less nutrients since some of them are extracted too, but it is a good start to enjoy the vegetable.
Ampalaya con carne is a superb dish. If you do the right thing, the bitter flavor of the ampalaya will be unnoticed – all you can taste are the array of flavors brought about by the different ingredients. If you like beef with broccoli recipe, you’ll surely like this dish too.
Do you like eating ampalaya? What other techniques do you do to remove its bitter taste?
