Today is Yaya Hermie's Birthday!!! I prepared a special dinner for her. The helpers of my neighbor, Kuya, surprised her with a cake and pancit!!! They are so sweet. I told Hermie a lot of people love her.
Chicken and Pork Pochero
1/2 K. Pork Liempo, cut into 2-inch cubes
1/2 K. Chicken
chorizo de Bilbao
2 t. salt
4 C. water
2 T. tomato paste
4 pcs. saba banana
3 pcs. camote, cut into big chunks
1 t. sugar
fish sauce, to taste
You may add pechay, beans and garbanzos
Boil the chicken and pork in water with salt and chorizo for 1 hour. Drain the meat and reserve the broth.
Slice the chorizo.
Saute garlic, onion and pork pieces. Add the sliced chorizo and tomato paste. Pour the broth then add the chicken pieces. Season with fish sauce and sugar.
When it boils, drop the camote and saba. When the camote and saba are cooked, add the other vegetables.
Serve with kalamansi and patis.
Best eaten with eggplant salad.
I missed cooking this dish!!! Mona loved it and so did PD. What's not to love??? I gave PD the fattiest pieces of pork!
Hermie also enjoyed her Pochero! I inherited her from my Mom. She has been with us since January of 1997.
Happy Birthday, Hermie! Thank you for putting up with my craziness!
