This recipe is ridiculous. No Chamorro is going to buy $10 a lb rib eye to make tinaktak. Properly handled, a lesser cut of beef tastes great. Chinese cabbage turns to mush. Wait, give me 3 months to grow fresh pumpkin tips! Tinaktak was intended to be a simple dish that satisfied families on a tight budget and ended up becoming a beloved traditional meal. You are trying too hard with this recipe because you weren't making it right in the 1st place. Take care and better luck next time! Left by: Sonia (8 Nov 2015)

Under #3, it says to add soy sauce and lemon juice. Lemon juice is not listed in the ingredients. How much is needed? Left by: Mhyschelle (30 Jul 2011)
