• Peel and thoroughly rinse your parsnips, carrots, onions, and potatoes.

• Cut into 1-1/2-inch pieces.

• Cut your beef into 1-1/2 inch cubes.

• Season beef cubes well with smoked paprika, sea salt and pepper, then dredge the beef into the flour (or Arrowroot powder) pressing a bit to ensure a good hold.

• Heat 1 Tablespoon of oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add in beef cubes along with any excess flour and cook until nicely browned, about 5 to 7 minutes. Set browned beef aside on a plate.

• Add the remaining tablespoon of oil into the same pan and heat. Add in your onions, celery, carrots, and garlic then sauté until slightly golden, for about 3 minutes.

-the oven method:

• Cover your pot with an oven-safe lid and cook for an hour or so until veggies and meat are super fork tender.

Humba is a dish popular in the southern parts of the Philippines *INGREDIENTS: 2 pounds pork belly, sliced into large pieces 1 cup pineapple juice 1 large onion, chopped 5 cloves garlic, minced 2 tablespoons fermented black beans (tausi) 1/4 cup soy sauce 1/3 cup vinegar 1/4 cup brown sugar 2 pieces dried bay leaves 1 teaspon whole black peppercorns 1 piece star anise Dried banana blossoms (optional) *INSTRUCTIONS: Place all ingredients in a pot. Cook until meat is tender, lowering heat to simmer. Remove scum that rises to the top. (Depending on your preference you can cook until dry and then brown the meat in its own rendered fat). My family likes plenty adobo sauce so I did not completely reduce the liquid. I transferred the pork pieces in an oven-safe dish and browned them in the oven for 20 minutes or you can brown them in a frying pan. Make sure to toast the skin side down the pan. I then returned the meat to the sauce. Serve and enjoy!
