Author: K de leon-Rieth


  • 1 kg beef short ribs
  • 1/2 kg Watermelon slices or more much better
  • Tamarind paste (I used Suree which you can buy it in any supermarket, you can also try Tamarind powder but I like this better)
  • Fish sauce (patis)
  • Sliced onions
  • Ripe tomatoes (you can use any but I used cherry tomatoes)
  • Radish, sliced
  • Sitaw
  • Kangkong
  • Okra (which I didn’t have because of the lockdown)
  • Siling haba


  • Boil beef and scoop out the impurities.
  • Then add tomatoes, watermelon, and onions.
  • Add Patis then bring to boil before you taste it. Always make it a habit to taste it before adding more salt or Patis. When you add let it boil first so it is properly distributed.
  • Slow-cook the ribs at low heat until the meat is tender.
  • Add tamarind paste then the veggies do not overcook.
