Cansi, also spelled kansi, is a Filipino beef soup originating from the Western Visayas. It is made with beef shank and bone marrow boiled until gelatinous. It is uniquely slightly soured with fruits like batuan or bilimbi. Cansi is usually cooked with unripe breadfruit or jackfruit, lemongrass, tomatoes, garlic, onions, fish sauce, and siling haba or labuyo peppers. The soup is usually orange in color due to the use of annatto seeds (atsuete). It is also sometimes dubbed as "sinigang na bulalo" in Tagalog regions, due to its similarity to sinigang and bulalo.[1][2][3][4]
