Pochero from the Luzon region of the Philippines is always rich with tomato sauce, this version looked like it has tomato sauce but the reality is, N-O-N-E, yes none. This is a la pobre version so I cooked it in a very affordable way. Here is the recipe.
Ingredients for 5 servings:
1/2 kilo pork
2 ripe cooking bananas ( sliced and fried)
2 potatoes (sliced and fried)
1 Carrot (sliced and Fried)
1/2 cup green peas
3 cloves garlic
1/2 bell pepper
1 teaspoon annatto powder ( atsuete)
2 cups water
salt and pepper to taste
1. Saute the garlic, onion and tomato then add annatto powder and continue to saute for 30 seconds then add the pork and continue to saute for 2 minutes.
2. Add the water and simmer until the pork is tender, then add the rest of the ingredients and simmer until done.
Serve it hot.
