Beef Pochero

I've seen so many versions of Beef Pochero. Some have tomatoes in it but I decided to make mine without it. Instead, I add cream to enrich the taste of all the vegetables.

You'll be needing the following ingredients:

8 tbsp sunflower oil
3 gloves of garlic
1 medium size onion
600 grams diced beef
1 tsp salt
3 cups water
2 cups cabbage sliced
2 cups fine beans; cut in half (baguio beans as Filipinos call it)
2 plantains sliced (saging na saba)
2 cups sweet potatoes (kamote)
1 small can of Nestle Cream
Pinch of pepper

Cooking procedures.

1. I started by frying the plantain and sweet potatoes in 6 tbps of sunflower oil. Set them aside.

2. In a wok/big sauce pan, pour in remaining oil. Sauté garlic and onion. Then put the diced beef. Stir-fried until brown.

3. Pour in 2 cups of water and sprinkle 1 tsp of salt. Let it simmer until beef is cooked and tender ( about 20 minutes depends on your tenderness you prefer).

Add the cabbage and fine beans with the remaining water. Let it boil until green vegetables are half-cooked.

Put the fried sweet potatoes and plantain and simmer for 3 minutes.

Finally, stir in the cream. Let it simmer again for 3 minutes. Season with pepper.

Best served with boiled rice.
