One dish meals are a standard in Filipino kitchens. Cooking an assortment of meats, vegetables, tubers, and fruits in broth is not just a shortcut in cooking, it also blends together the flavor we all love.


1 kilo chicken, cut into serving pieces
1/2 kilo pork, cut into serving pieces
2 slices Chinese ham, cut into strips
2 pieces chorizo bilbao, sliced
Salt to taste
3 pieces potato, quartered
1 cup cooked garbanzos
1 small can tomato paste or tomato sauce
6 pieces fried saba bananas, sliced into 3
Patis to taste
1 small head cabbage, cut into wedges


  • Boil the chicken and pork in enough water until tender. Add the ham, chorizo, and some salt. Continue cooking for about 10 minutes. Remove the meats from the broth and transfer to a plate.
  • Bring the stock to a boil then add the potatoes, garbanzos, and tomato paste. When potatoes are tender, add the saba. Season with patis, if necessary. Lastly, add the cabbage.
  • To serve, arrange the meats on a serving platter. Serve with the vegetables in the broth and some bread or rice. If desired, prepare a dipping sauce of mashed squash or eggplant.

    This is the Tagalog pochero.When I was in Cebu their pochero was more of like a beef soup.I was expecting the red pochero with the bananas,and was surprised when they served me a different one.
