If you like red meat and vegetables, then you will love Beef Pochero (Beef and Sausage Stew.) But make sure you have time, because the beef takes a long time to stew, a good hour to 90 minutes. I say start the beef and vegetables, and then take a long bath!
I don’t remember having this dish growing up. My Lola made Giniling and Sinigang, Adobo and a fish dish, the name of which I can’t recall, but never Beef Pochero. And we never had Chorizo… We had hot dogs, the Oscar Mayer variety. I’m not complaining, just noting how different my experience has been.
I really enjoy making a new Filipino dish each week–so I can learn how to cook, and so I can get closer to my Filipino culture–so please let me know what dish I should make next. Send me a tweet: @gerrardpanahon.
