Best Ever

I am married to a filipino and he absolutely loves this. It is better than Calderetta which is the true filipino beef stew in flavor and texture and a whole lot easier to make. My kids love this also along with some steaming hot rice

Great recipe

It turned out to be really good. I used sweet chili sauce instead because I could not find the regular sweet chili. It still worked. Thanks for posting this recipe.

Excellent Stew for the Stewed Out

I've eaten stew at least once a week for my whole life, so this stew was a good change for the ol' palate. I was surprised by how meaty tasting it was--alot heartier than a regular beef stew--and it was simple to make. I reckon it would make a fine meal on a cold winter night.
