Pinatolang Bulalo, Bulalo with Patola. This is half of the bulalo shank that I bought from Mahogany Market in Tagaytay. I have decided to cook a unique bulalo soup dish out of it. Instead of the usual cabage and/or pechay that goes with the traditional Bulalo Recipe I used Patola. Patola is a very versatile vegetable soup ingredient, there is sweet vegetable taste that makes any vegetable soup taste good. I just love this vegetable, I have a lot of recipe that I used patola as the main vegetable ingredient, click the links below to check them out.

As expected this version of Bulalo was a winner, the patola and beef combination made the difference. To cook my Pinatolang Bulalo, Bulalo with Patola is basically the same with any Bulalo recipe the only difference is I used patola for my vegetable.
Here is the recipe of my Pinatolang Bulalo, Bulalo with Patola, try it.
1 to 1.5 kilo bulalo, beef shank, in one piece
2-3 large size patola, skinned, cut into circles/crosswise
1 whole garlic
1 tbsp peppercorn
2 medium size onion, quartered
Place the whole beef shank in a large sauce pan. Cover with water. Add the onion, garlic and peppercorns. Bring to a boil, remove scum that rises. Lower heat, cover and simmer/slow cook for 3 to 4 hours or until the beef tendons are tender. Remove the now tender beef shank from the casserole and keep aside. Place the remaining broth in a big bowl, set aside. Wash the pan of all scum, using a sieve strain the broth and replace in the same pan, add more water as necessary. Return the beef shank in the pan let it boil for a couple of minutes. Season with salt to taste. Now add in the patola and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes or until vegetables are just cook. Transfer in a big serving bowl and serve at once with a dipping sauce of patis, kalamansi and siling labuyo.
