Easy Kansi Recipe

Have you already tried the best LINAGA NG BACOLOD AT ILOILO, also known as KANSI. This recipe is an Easy Kansi inspired recipe.

Kansi is a fusion of Linaga and Sinigang soup recipe. A famous comfort food  in Bacolod and Iloilo. Perfect to match with lots of hot rice and dipping sauce of patis, calamansi, and red chilis. So comfortingly delicious specially on a cold weather.

This recipe is inspired to the original recipe of Kansi. A recipe for some who doesn’t have access to the native ingredient batuan. You can use any souring agent like sinigang mix powder or even fresh kamias too.

Easy Kansi Recipe


1 kilo beef shank and maskara (knee or face)
1 pack Knorr sinigang mix (¼ kilo batuan/batwan)
¼ kilo hilaw na langka, diced (unriped jack fruit)
1 piece beef Knorr cubes
4 pieces long chili
2 pieces onions, sliced
½ medium head size garlic, pounded
3 medium tomatoes, chopped
1 tbsp of Atsuete (Annato seeds)
3 pcs Tanglad, tie in a knot (lemon grass)
½ cup cooking oil
salt and pepper


In a large stock pot or pressure cooker, sauté garlic, onions and tomatoes until fragrant. Add the beef shank and saute for about 2 minutes.

After a few minutes, pour in enough water and bring it to a boil. Let it simmer until the beef becomes tender for about 1-2 hours for regular pot. If using a pressure cooker, time it for 30-45 minutes when the cooker starts to whistles.

Add the diced langka, knorr beef cubes, season with salt and pepper. Once the langka is soft enough, add in the Knorr Sinigang Mix (or batuan), atsuete and tanglad knot.

Simmer for a few minutes. Add the red and green chili peppers and turn of heat. Serve and enjoy!

Cooking Notes:
If using batuan: you will know batuan is cooked once the skin has opened. Just remove it from the soup after, because it is only used as a souring agent. In a small bowl, press the softened batwan to bring out the juice. Strain the batwan and put the juice into the pot.

The same thing is done if using other souring agent like kamias or sampaloc.
