  • 500 g Beef Sirloin strips
  • 2 tbsp Calamansi juice
  • 3 tbsp Knorr Seasoning or ordinary soy sauce
  • 1 tsp Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • ½ cup Mixed Pickles with syrup
  • ½ cup Water
  • 2 pcs Potato, small, cut into 2” strips
  • 1 pc Carrot, small, cut into 2” strips
  • 1 pc Red Bell pepper, julienne
  • ¼ cup Coarsely ground roasted peanuts
  • 1 cup Grated Cheese
  • ¼ cup Raisins
  • 250 g Tomato sauce
  • 2 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 pc Onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves Garlic, chopped
  • 3 tbsp Cooking Oil


Marinate beef for at least 1 hour with Calamansi juice, soy sauce, black pepper, the first tablespoon of sugar, and pickles. Drain beef strips and save marinade. Sauté garlic and onion then stir in beef strips. Stir ingredients in pan for about 2 minutes before adding the marinade to slightly brown the beef. Add water, cover pan and simmer for 10 minutes or until beef is tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in potato, carrots and peanuts and simmer for another 5 minutes or until potatoes and carrots are almost cooked. Add tomato sauce, the remaining sugar, bell pepper, grated cheese and raisins. Stir constantly for 2 minutes after boiling to allow cheese to melt and be completely incorporated into the sauce. Serve hot.

About Us (circa 2009)

Our journey led us to this place. A little more than 10 years ago we began our journey as husband and wife. Three years later, we found ourselves with two bundles of joy- a daughter and then a son. They're the children we've dreamed of having.

About five years since the birth of our son, an unexpected gift came- a younger brother to our school-age kids. And soon enough, a baby girl arrived to round the family membership.

Brave was a term used by a friend to describe us. Challenging... and loving it -- yeah, this journey is not for the faint of heart.
