WFD: Mama's Better Puchero

What's for Dinner? Mama's Better Puchero

The other day my mom and grandma ate at a local Filipino food joint. They ordered their Puchero dish (Philippine style). Its been a while since my mom had Puchero so she was excited to try it. The Puchero was bland and tasteless and she was pretty much pist off. You have to understand that my family eats Filipino food almost everyday so we have high hopes and expectations whenever we eat at a Filipino restaurant. It has to be just as good or even better than how my mom makes it. To her disappointment, she made her own Puchero. She called it "The Better Puchero".

There are many ways to prepare this type of stew but my mom's version is with beef shank, potatoes, sweet potatos, pork and beans, plantains for sweetness, cabbage, string beans and some other stuff I don't know about lol.

The best way to enjoy it is with steamed white rice, just because we pretty much eat anything with rice HA! and rice soaks up all the juice/sauce and its so delicious.

Puchero: is a type of stew prepared in Argentina, Colombia, Uruguay, the Philippines, and Spain, specifically the autonomous communities of Andalusia and the Canary Islands. The name comes from the Spanish word "puchero" which means "stewpot." (source: wikipedia)
