It's Filipino Week at BuzzFeed Australia — which means we're celebrating everything Filipino-Aussie culture. Today, we challenged three Filo-Aussies to try and guess their mum's kare-kare. What could go wrong?!
For those who don't know, kare-kare is a Filipino peanut stew usually eaten on special occasions. It's traditionally made with oxtail, beef tripe and veggies, served with shrimp paste and rice.
First up, let's introduce everyone. Meet Alex, a fitness coach and creator who's here with his mum, Sharon.
Next, we have Anna, who runs Filipino Movement Australia, with her daughter Bianca, who is a digital creator.
And finally, meet Luisa, a home cook whom you may recognise from our Chefs Try Each Other's Food series. She's here with her child, Eli.
Dish A: Sharon's Kare-Kare
Dish B: Anna's Kare-Kare
Dish C: Luisa's Kare-Kare
