This Easy Pork Afritada Recipe is another version of pork afritada. This recipe will guide you on how to prepare your favorite pork afritada with ease and confidence.
My secret for a good pork afritada recipe, and for any other meat recipes, is the quality of the meat. I see to it that I use the freshest possible meat available. I do this by going directly to the butcher station and request for newly cut or sliced meat, instead of getting pre-packaged meat from the meat section of the supermarket. Another factor that is also related to quality is the texture of the meat. I make sure that the meat is tender and easy to chew. This will make the dish more pleasurable and enjoyable to eat. This can be done by simmering the meat for several minutes until the desired texture is achieved.
The sauces and seasonings are next on my list. While the meat can be our main source of flavor, sauces and seasonings plays a big role in enhancing the flavor of a dish. I see to it that I only use appropriate sauces and seasonings for the dish. Adding unnecessary ingredients can have a bad effect on any dish – simplicity is the key.
