Pares and Fried Rice(Pinoy Style Beef Brisket)

pares…………this dish made me remember our all time favourite pares mami house back home. The COCOY”S Pares….When me and my wife are lazy to cook, once a week we always dine to that small restaurant. Aside form it’s reasonable price, they offer a great serving that is enough for us(wow, Cocoys that was a great advertisement from your part) This dish usually comes with a serving of the best garlic fried rice in town. I love this PARES!!!!………………….Did you know that star anise is one of the main ingredients of this recipe. It gives the distinctive taste of this dish. Star anise are also known for some of its healing properties. The anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties of star anise is useful in the treatment of asthma, bronchitis and dry cough. For this reason, some cough mixtures contain star anise extract. Star anise can also be used as for its sedating properties to ensure a good sleep. Star anise can also be used as a natural breath freshener…..
