Beef Mechado - Beef Stew

The whole family loves this dish.  Because of the blizzard I have the time to just simmer the meat as long as I want.  No school.  No rushing around for extra curricular activities.  A very easy Filipino dish that my hubby an american likes as well.

I found a website for Filipino cooking and would love to share it with you my readers.  It is panlasangpinoy.  If you are like me, a filipino who don't really cook when I was in the Philippines.  You will realize like I did that most of our dishes and desserts are not really difficult to do.   Check out the site, it has a broad range of different filipino comfort food dishes and a lot more.
