The Tagalog word baka means “cow” and it is used an adjective to describe beef dishes. Literally, karne ng baka means “meat of cow” and its one-word English translation is “beef.”

For those who don’t have than much of a liking for pork or are prohibited from eating the so-called other white meat, Tokwa’t Baka (Tofu & Beef) is a great alternative.
