I love kare-kare and pochero. I like the ox tripe in kare-kare and I thought that it is be a good match with beef especially when cooked pochero style. I wanted the tripe and beef simmered until both gets really tender. That is something like this pochero dish that I made for you; the tripe […]

Pata Pochero is a soup dish composed of cut pork legs or pork hocks, potatoes, ripe saba banana (plantains), Calabaza squash (kalabasa), and bok choy (pechay). This simple soup recipe is very comforting. You can enjoy pochero during lunch or dinner. The key to making a perfect pata pochero has something to do with the […]
Pochero or Puchero is a well-loved Filipino stew. I know that you are familiar with this dish after we featured two variations: Beef Pochero and Chicken Pochero.
To complete our Pochero series, I thought of sharing this Pork Pochero recipe. This pretty much uses the same ingredients. However, there are some differences in the way the ingredients are prepared. Since we now have three recipe variations, it will make more sense if different options in preparation are presented. For example: this recipe does not require plantains to be fried while the previous recipes do.
Chicken Pochero is a type of stew composed of chicken, sausage, vegetables, plantains, and tomatoes. The harmonious collaboration of different flavors makes this dish extra special.
I love to have this stew during cold seasons. Sipping the hot soup makes me feel warm and comfortable, while the indulging tastes makes my day complete.
This recipe is not very different from the Beef Pochero that we previously featured. Instead of using Chorizo de Bilbao, I opted for Chinese sausage. I also used plantains, instead of “Saging na Saba”.

Beef Pochero is a Filipino Stew similar to that of “Nilaga” (commonly known as boiled beef). This dish is complimented by the sweetness of the “Saba” (Cavendish banana) and a unique sour blend is brought-in by the tomato sauce. A very enticing dish that is worth craving for, Beef Pochero brings-out the delightful taste of our Spanish influence.

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.
Pork Estofado is a stewed pork dish served with fried plantains. This pork recipe is comparable to pork adobo but, the use of carrots and fried plantains provide distinction to this dish.
I like the idea of having plantains in pork and beef dishes. Plantains or “saging na saba” help improve the flavor of a dish and adds a little sweetness to it. Take the beef pochero as an example: the sweetness of the plantains blends well with the other ingredients producing a great tasting dish. Sometimes, I also use plantains in Beef Nilaga to add more life to it.
Do you like the idea of using plantains (saba) in some of the dishes that you cook?

We are currently experiencing a winter storm here in the Midwest. About a foot of snow has piled-up outside and it will still accumulate overnight. I wanted to shoot some videos but I felt so lazy – must be the weather.
After having some hot soup for dinner, I thought of writing an article about Filipino foods that can help us feel warm and comfortable during the cold days – and this is it. Since its almost midnight, I don’t have the time to create a long list and do some extensive research. I’m thinking of starting with 10 foods that we already featured before and I am relying on you guys to help me add more :).
Beef Nilaga or Nilagang Baka is literally translated as “Boiled Beef”. This is a simple soup dish best served during rainy and cold weather. Have you noticed the similarity of this dish to that of the Bulalo and Beef Pochero?
I highly recommend this dish to those who are learning how to cook because it takes almost no effort at all to prepare (just have patience in tenderizing the meat). This was actually the first dish that I’ve tried after fried egg ;).
