Sinigang na Tadyang ng Baka sa Bayabas (Beef Guava Soup)



2 pounds beef spareribs cut into serving pieces

10 cups water

1 onion, peeled and quartered

1 tablespoon fish sauce

3 Roma tomatoes, chopped

7 to 8 large ripe guavas, peeled, quartered and seeded

salt and pepper to taste

1 small bunch kangkong

1 small bunch of string beans (3 inches long)

1 Siling Haba (Long Chili)

In a pot over medium heat, combine beef ribs and water. Bring to a boil, skimming scum that floats to top. When broth has cleared, add onions and fish sauce. Lower heat, cover and cook for about 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until meat is fork tender.

Add tomatoes and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes. Add guavas and continue to cook for another 7 to 10 minutes or until softened and has imparted flavor to broth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Trim about 2 inches from the kangkong stalks and discard. Cut kangkong into 3-inch lengths, separating the sturdier stalks from the leaves. Add kangkong, siling haba and string beans and continue to cook for about 1 minute or until just wilted. Serve hot.
