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?
