Beef Mechado is a type of stew with tomato sauce. This dish is somewhat similar to other Filipino dishes such as the Kaldereta (caldereta), Estofada (or Estofado), and as well as the Afritada because of the base ingredient used (which is tomato sauce). If we look closely, there are differences (aside from the name 🙂 )such as the manner of cooking or preparation and ingredients used.
I enjoy eating tomato based dishes especially if beef is used. However, the time needed to tenderize the meat tests my patience. Good thing I was able to buy a reliable pressure cooker to solve my problem. I acknowledge the fact that slow cooked meals are still the best but sometimes we need to improvise our cooking methods to suit our busy world.

Do you like dishes cooked in tomato-based sauce? If you will be throwing the question back to me, I’ll definitely say YES. To tell you the truth, I developed an addiction (sort of) to these type of dishes. Actually, my most favorite Filipino food, pork menudo (this was my very first recipe post, by the way), is also cooked in tomato sauce.
I asked the question because I observed that there are plenty of delectable Filipino foods cooked in tomato or tomato-based sauces. Take the Beef Mechado, Chicken Asado, Beef Kaldereta, Lengua Estofado, and even the Beef Pochero as few of the examples. I enjoy eating all these dishes and I never get tired of the taste because each of them has a unique flavor that differentiates one from the other.
Here we are with another delicious tomato-based chicken dish that will surely capture your attention: Chicken Afritada. This might be an everyday dish served in Filipino households; however, having the complete ingredients and putting some love in your cooking will definitely turn this ordinary dish into something extra-ordinary.
It is given that we all have different ways in cooking certain dishes. There might be differences in ingredients and methods but we still refer to the same dish. I am curious, and I love know how Chicken Afritada is done in the different regions of the Philippines. How do you do this in your hometown? I’ll greatly appreciate your response.
