Kansi and Chicken Inasal

One of my favorite Boracay food is Kansi at Island Chicken Inasal.

It is a cross between Nilagang Bulalo and Sinigang but Batuan was used as a souring agent.  I researched online for a recipe and adjusted it according to my taste.


1/2 k. beef shank
Patis from Malabon
2 T. cooking oil
3 cloves garlic, sliced
1 onion, sliced
1-inch ginger, sliced thickly
5 pcs. batuan
200 g. tamarind, boiled and mashed
1/4 k. raw jackfruit
3 stalks tanglad, bruised and tied into a knot
2 jalapeno peppers
1 T. atsuete powder

Boil the beef shank with peppercorn and patis until tender.

Saute garlic, onions and ginger.

Add the beef ,stock, batuan and strained tamarind.  Let it simmer under low fire for 30 minutes.

Add the jackfruit and when it is tender, add the jalapeno, tanglad stalks and atsute powder.

Season with more patis if needed.

Best eaten with Chicken Inasal.

Corry ordered chicken from JT's Manukan.

She had it delivered here in the house.

Happy! Happy! Joy! Joy!
