Papis Recipe


Papis is one of those Filipino dishes that is simple in ingredients and cooking procedures and yet still ending up very flavorful. The Papis recipe is made up of decadent beef and tasty pork and beans from a can (or two).




  1. In a large pot over medium heat, combine beef shanks, beef tendon and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, skimming scum that accumulates on top. Lower heat, cover and simmer for about 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until beef and tendon are fork-tender. Remove from heat, drain and reserve about 1 cup of the liquid.
  2. In a pot over medium heat, heat oil. Add onions and cook until limp. Add beef shanks and tendons and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Add pork and beans and reserved liquid. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Continue to simmer for about 10 to 15 minutes. Serve hot.
