Beef Pochero

This is one of the popular Filipino recipes. In our dialect, we call it lauya nga baka. The soup is good and it is served best with rice.

Cooking Information:

* Estimated Time: 2 hours


* 1 kg (2 lb) boneless beef shanks
* 3-4 saba bananas (plantains)
* 2 pieces chorizo sliced into 1-cm (½-in) pieces
* 2 liters (8 cups) water
* 2 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered
* 100g (¾ cup) chickpeas
* 1 cabbage, quartered
* 2 tablespoons patis (fish sauce) or salt


* Peel and slice the saba bananas then cut diagonally into pieces and set aside.
* In a stockpot, bring the beef shanks and beef stock to the boil, place in a lower heat and simmer for about 1½ hours or until beef is almost tender.
* Add water if necessary to make sure it does not dry out.
* Add the potatoes and bananas. Simmer for about 15 minutes more. Add the chickpeas and chorizo then continue simmering for another 5 minutes.
* Add the cabbage and season with patis. Simmer for 2 to 3 minutes or until the cabbage is tender crisp.
