Balado

Serves 4

I had a lot of stuff in the kitchen but I was lazy to cook. So I was thinking of preparing something that can last a little longer. That why I made the balado, there are a lot of method of preparing and every region has its own characteristic but this recipe is very practical to make. So, at the end I’ve manage to make a combination of meat, boiled egg and fried potatoes balado hoping that it will last for 2-3 days. It didn’t turn out that way, it was gone in one day..he..he..oh well then I had to cook again

-marinate it with the meat and set aside for 15 minutes

-drain the potatoes in batches then fry until dry and crispy, set aside
-take the meat in batches, get the juice out and fry, set aside

The Chili Balado:

-put the tomatoes in a bowl and drain them in boiled water until the outer layer peels it self
-take out and blender it into a paste

  1. Great flavors in this dish and it sounds like it would even be better the next day, if they saved any. I mentioned you on Bam’s Kitchen so a pingback should be coming your way. Take care, BAM
