RECIPE BELOW IS FOR A BIGGER BATCH THAN THE COOKING VIDEO – Hello everyone.. I noticed that the taste of Chinese Kikiam or sausage is almost the same with our Beef Pares. I have a few beef cubes in the freezer (left over from a dish I made earlier). I thawed it and decided to add kikiam to make it at least to a bowl of beef enough to serve for 2 with steamed rice of course. I hope you enjoy it. Thanks.
