Sinigang na Baka sa Bayabas(Beef in guava soup)

My wife cook this recipe, she learned it from her mother. I only have this dish in their house because to be honest, I did not know that guava can be used in cooking.  Best serve with a side dipping sauce of bagoong with chillies(wow, I am hungry)…Did you know that nutrients in guava, such as vitamin-C, Carotenoids and potassium strengthens and tones up the digestive system and disinfect it. Guava is also beneficial in gastroenteritis due to reasons stated above..It is also good in treatment for diarrhea, dysentery, constipation, cough, cold, skin care, high blood pressure, weight loss and more…
