I've never heard of this dish before. Is it a normal Filipino specialty? I know a lot of the ingredients are definitely used in a lot of Filipino dishes. Also, is the "cooking banana" you're referring to just a plantain? The dish looks great/tasty.

Hello NMOS, not really sure where's the origin of this dish but I grew up with this dish in Iloilo.
Yeah cooking banana could be plaintain or the other kind, saba. You should give this a try. Really good and super tasty. My favorite in this dish are the veggies. Great dipping in fish sauce or soysauce.

Potchero/Pochero/Puchero is a beef/pork stew of Spanish origin. Puchero in Spanish means stewpot, and there is nothing quite like the taste of puchero :) What a great recipe!

Hello Alisa, thanks for the input. I know there are a lot of ways to prepare this Pilipino way. Some cook it ith tomato sauce. Yummy! Spanish Puchero have a big influence with the Pilipino version.
