Cooking Afritadang Baboy (Pork Afritada)


Read on to get my easy pork afritada recipe.





Cooking afritada shows how much influence the Spaniards had on Philippine cuisine. Afritadang baboy (pork) or manok (chicken) is a simple saute'-stew recipe that is tomato-based. Being so, it's yummy for both children and adults. It's not pork caldereta, by the way. Although, there are some similarities.

Afritadang baboy is very easy to cook, really. Its ingredients are not hard to find, either. All you need is the complete list of the needed ingredients which I am sharing with you right now.

  14. For me, Afritadang baboy or manok is definitely one of the Filipino viands that I can cook on my own. Not only does it require some of the basic ingredients, it's also very easy and simple to do. :)

  17. One important tip that I got from my Mom is to chop the ingredients like the vegies in such a way that everything is coordinated like you did here. Cubes for the hard ones like potato and carrots, square shapes for the rest. So that the end product or the cooked dish will look much more appealing.

  19. Nice photos of the ingredients. A lot of food/cooking blogs forget how important pictures are to the mix. On the recipe itself, I can't practice it as I don't really cook at my place :( What a shame.

  20. One of the easiest menu I'm doing since I started cooking. Although we don't have the same version coz everytime I cook it, I only put potato or carrot in it. My kids are not fans of bell peppers in a stew, they chew it as is. They eat paprikas here like apples. :)

  21. This is one way to encourage kids to eat vegetables together with their meat. In my opinion, kids like a lot of dishes with tomato sauce in it. Do you have the same observation?
