beef afritada

Another Filipino dish. Afritada usually uses chicken but I just want to try beef . I cooked this using Pinay In Texas Cooking Corner  recipe but I did not put some of the ingredients  as I don’t have it. It is very delicious and my husband loves it. Another  keeper recipe for me 🙂

1. Marinate the pork in soy sauce, pineapple juice and garlic for at least 1 hour. Drain the pork. Save the marinade.
2. In a large saucepan over medium heat, sauté garlic in olive oil until light brown. Add onions and sauté until almost translucent. Add the pork. Saute until it turns light brown.
3. Add the marinade and tomato sauce. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until pork is almost tender. Season with salt and pepper to suit your taste.( Note: I use maggi magic sarap to add a magical taste )
4. Add the potatoes and bell peppers. Cover, lower heat to medium low and let simmer for about 5 minutes. Add green peas and carrots and simmer for 5 more minutes. From time to time, check to avoid drying and add water if necessary to attain the desired consistency of the sauce.
5. Remove from heat. Serve hot with steamed rice.

something japanese!
