  • 1 Here’s a dish you would want to come home to after a tiring day. It’s hearty and filling!
  • 2 Beef will always have impurities in them. Though washing the beef may help clean the meat, here’s a technique on how you can eliminate those impurities and excess fat. You just need to boil the beef in enough water, without cover, then discard the liquid after. This whole process is called blanching. After you are done blanching the beef, get another pot and drop in the Knorr Beef Cubes with the beef shank, onions and pepper. Fill the pot with 6 cups of water and just bring this to a boil before reducing the heat to a simmer until the beef is fork tender.
  • 3 Now, gently add the potatoes in with the finger chili and saba. Let this simmer until the potatoes are fork tender.
  • 4 Finally, add the cabbage in and give this at least 2 minutes to simmer and that’s our dish!
  • 5 You will definitely see the smile on your family’s faces when you serve them Pochero Cebu. This is definitely a recipe that’s meant to satisfy and please!
