    My college days are reminded of Beef Pares. My boy-friends and I usually go to paresan after gimiks at around 1-3am! I will forever love Beef Pares. Even my hubby and I still date in paresan! I love Beef Pares, need I say more of my love for it?! Thanks for sharing this another great Filipino menu! 🙂

    Is this like beef stew or beef brisket maki? Anyway, as delicious the picture might look, I am not tempted to eat the food because of my vegetarian diet. Actually we have a similar recipe but we use gluten or fake meat.

    Hubby loves pares so I think I'll give this recipe a shot. I don't have star anise though. You think I can substitute anisado? How much anisado should I use?

    Yummy!!! I love any recipe with soy sauce. I should try this one. My sister in law will definitely like it. Except for the husband, he don't like anything that has a sweet taste in the food (not unless it's desserts).
