How to Make Manny Pacquiao's Favorite Soup

IMAGE Roy Macam

Manny Pacquiao may have recently ranked as the second best boxer in history, but he's the only one on BoxRec's list that is still actively fighting. What's the secret to keeping him at his fighting peak? It's not some weird shake. Instead, his personal chef, Nonoy Neri, wakes up at four each morning to prepare bulalo, a traditional Philippine peasant soup comprising meat, bones, cabbage, spices, and not much else. Sometimes the old ways are the best ways—after all, it's not like you can argue with the results.

And thanks to True.Ink, the recipe for Pacquiao's favorite dish has gotten an update courtesy of chef Dale Talde, so you can skip getting your wallet emptied at a trendy Manhattan "bone broth" dispensary and make this nutrient-packed, much more filling version of meat-as-miracle-supplement for yourself at home. Go for some rounds on the heavy bag to get your appetite up, then watch the instructional video below.
