Lusog Notes

This DEL MONTE Red Pochero dish is rich in iron for making red blood cells that carry oxygen around the body. It is also rich in vitamin A which promotes normal growth and development.

Chef's Tip

Choose relatively cheaper cuts of beef that are tougher and have connective tissue or "litid" like round, kenchi, or even kalitiran. When cooked slowly, these beef cuts turn tender and the "litid" melts in your mouth.
