Kare-kare (Ox Tail in Peanut Stew)

I daresay, this is one of the most requested Filipino dishes by balikbayans and a favorite during family gatherings.

I am writing the recipe today for my brother in-law, as a much belated thank you for treating us to a mean, low and slow cooked pork adobo when we last visited.

Cooking Kare-kare isn't rocket science, but our version is a little bit more tedious because we prefer our vegetables to be flavorful on their own and retain most of their crispness (mushed veggies are not good eats).  I've also tried to move away from pre-packaged mixes to avoid MSG. You are of course welcome to substitute the recipe here and use the mix :)
