  • 1/2 kilo beef cut into cubes (select a cut good for stewing)
  • 1 small head of a cabbage quartered
  • 1/4 kilo Chinese cabbage (pechay)
  • 2 medium sized potatoes quartered
  • 5 plantains peeled and sliced in the middle
  • 1 big can pork and beans
  • 1/2 cup tomato paste
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 small onion sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • salt and pepper to taste

Step 1

Start by frying the plantains. Filipino plantains look like this. Short and fat. Just let them fry until slightly golden brown. Take off the oil and set aside.


Step 2

Saute the garlic and onions. Then add in the beef. Saute until it changes color. Season with some salt and pepper.


Step 3

Next add in the tomato paste and water.


Step 4

Mix and let it boil. Cover and simmer over low medium heat until beef is tender.


Step 5

Once the beef is tender, add in the potatoes. Let it simmer some more until the potatoes are cooked.


Step 6

At this point you can add in the rest of the ingredients. The veggies, pork and beans and plantains. I usually just pile them in and cover for a few minutes allowing the veggies to wilt a bit.


Step 7

Afterward I gently mix them until their well incorporated into the sauce. Serve your beef pochero and enjoy!
