Filipino Pochero Recipe
Have you ever noticed some of the similarities in our dishes to the other nation’s dishes? Well, yes, in fact almost all our food served as the Filipino cuisine is a combination of any of the foreigners that once visited our land. But there are also differences that makes the Filipino cuisine more unique. One great example of that is pochero.
Pochero is a famous Filipino stew not just in the Philippines but also all throughout the world. It has similarities on other nation’s dishes such as that from the Spaniards’ cocido dish because of the fact that almost all our cuisine are influenced by other people who have invaded the country many years ago. It can be served during ordinary Sunday gatherings as well as any other celebrations. Here is a recipe on how to cook Pork Pochero.

× 1 piece sweet corn (optional)
× 2 pieces onions (chopped)
× 4 pieces garlic (minced)
× 4 pieces potatoes (chopped)
× 4 pieces ripe cardava banana/ saging na saba (sliced)
Here’s how to cook:
1. In a big casserole, pour in the water and pork. Let it boil for about an hour or so.

4. Sauté garlic and onion for about 2 minutes.
5. Add the pork meat that you set aside earlier. Stir and fry. Make sure that it turns brown all over.
