Baka Tula-Sog a beef dish from Davao where cheap cuts of beef are slowly stewed in a cocoa with pineapples, curry powder and bagoong, a weird combination? For most, but this blend really works well and complement each components of the dish.


  • 1 kg stewing beef or brisket, cubed
  • 400g can pineapple chunks
  • 3 cups beef stock
  • 3/4 cup vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 4 tbsp bagoong alamang
  • 2 pcs tablea
  • 2 tbsp curry powder
  • 2 pcs bay leaf
  • 2 pcs birds eye chillies, finely chopped
  • 1 whole garlic, minced
  • 1 large red onions, minced
  • 1 thumb sized fresh turmeric, thinly sliced
  • oil
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper


  1. Season beef with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  2. Heat up a pot, add oil then brown beef pieces. Set it aside,
  3. Using the same pot sauté garlic and onions.
  4. Add the chillies and bagoong, continue to sauté for a minute.
  5. Add the beef back together with turmeric, beef stock, vinegar, pineapple juice, tablea, curry powder and bay leaf. Bring to a boil then simmer in low heat for 1 1/2 hours.
  6. Bring heat to high then reduce the liquid to a thick consistency, season with freshly ground black pepper and salt if needed. Add the pineapple chunks, mix to combine then serve.
