Filipino Beef Pochero

panlasangpinoy's picture
Beef Pochero is a Filipino Stew similar to that of €œNilaga€ (commonly known as boiled beef). This dish is complimented by the sweetness of the €œSaba€ (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.
