Beef Afritada Recipe!!!

Beef Afritada Recipe!!!

beef afritada

Beef afritada is a variation of the popular Chicken Afritada which is a basic Filipino tomato based chicken stew. Instead of chicken, you use beef. Basic ingredients include potatoes, carrots, and tomatoes. Unlike Chicken Afritada the only drawback about using beef is the time it takes to prepare.  Basically it takes longer for beef to become tender than chicken or pork.  So most of the time is spent continuously cooking the beef in medium heat until it becomes tender. I highly recommend using a pressure cooker if you want to decrease cooking time, it can really help.

Beef Afritada is a well known Filipino recipe that’s  mostly cooked during special occasions, especially during “Fiesta”,  a religious festival, or any event marked by festivities or celebration. In my home town this is one of the best dishes to serve during Fiesta.  I asked my mother to teach me how to cook this dish, so today this is my version of Beef Afritada.  Enjoy.
