Try my Pork Afritada

I hurried home last night, my mind has been running wild on what will be for our dinner?! I thought about cooking Menudo, but there was no pork liver available so i settled on cooking Afritada instead. You have to know am always nervous cooking, seems like its always a first time. So last night, was like the rest of first times for me, my first time to cook afritada and my first time to cook for six persons - Yobib plus his three nephews, plus me and Yena! Record breaking people to feed for me! and it makes me more nervous..

Cook-It-Easy Afritada

1 pack Knorr Cook-It-Easy Afritada-Menudo Recipe Mix
3/4 kg pork or chicken meat, cut into serving pieces
2 medium potatoes, pared and quartered
2 small red and green bell peppers, sliced
2 tbsp cooking oil
2 cups (about 500 ml) water

3 Easy Steps
1. Heat oil in a pan. Fry the meat until slightly brown, then remove excess oil.
2. In the same pan, add the water, then completely dissolve Knorr Cook-It-Easy Afritada-Menudo Recipe Mix. Bring to boil and simmer with cover until meat is tender (30-45 minutes).
3. Add potatoes and cook for another 10 minutes (I added extra carrots!! feel ko lang :) heheh) . Add bell peppers in the last few minutes of cooking. Serve.

I dont know if my nervousness gets in the way of my cooking; The three kids loved my afritada, Yena had her two servings while hubby told me it was way too salty for him :(. He was still happy though.. I told him i can do better the next time for his taste :)
