While I was looking for more recipes with sotanghon, I found the Beef Amapalaya with Sotanghon recipe. It didn’t look normal but I tried it out anyway.
This Beef Ampalaya with Sotanghon Soup is okay but not gonna be in my favorite recipe list. I’m just not a fan of tomato-based soups but if you do, give this one a try!
