Chicken Afritada – Chicken Stew

Chicken Afritada – Chicken Stew

This is based on the Filipino Afritada recipe which my family has gotten to simply calling chicken stew. Which, basically, is what it is. I like it because, well, you can only have fried chicken so often (their favorite), and this has both starch and vegetables and a hearty gravy all in one pot so…

Chicken Stewed in Coconut Milk

My wandering blogger friend Sha posted this recipe on facebook and I just had to try it. I had all the ingredients on hand, and the process was easy enough for a weekday meal, so why not? This was a very tasty dish and my family love it! Their verdict? “It’s like chicken curry without…

Sassy Sarciado

I call this Sassy Sarciado because it is based from the Pinoy Cook’s recipe.

Beef Stew with Mushrooms

Beef Stew with Mushrooms

Beef stew for me has always been tomato based with potatoes, carrots, and other veggies in the “stew”. Southern beef stew, I learned was quite different though. It was more of just plain beef stewed in gravy. It was pretty good, different, but quite satisfying. However, I just can’t leave it well enough alone, so…

Chicken, Tomatoes, and Pineapple Stew ala Sassy

Chicken, Tomatoes, and Pineapple Stew ala Sassy

I saw this recipe on Sassy’s Blog and thought it may be a good thing to try. Cooking chicken as often as we do, the same recipes over and over again get tiresome, so it’s always great to discover a new way of treating the same meat. I had to make minor adjustments to the…
