Kare kare has mixed origins but one of them is that it came from Pampanga. Kare kare word may also be derived from the word curry ,an Indian influence because of its “satay” peanut sauce.
This is my all time fave Filipino dish and I decided to try cooking it since I got some oxtail and left over beef tripe.I cant find puso ng saging so I cooked without it.Email me at email@example.com for recipe special request.
