how to cook beef pochero recipe and ingredientsPhilippines were invaded by the Spaniards for more than three centuries. So, it is not so surprising at all if until now you can see Spaniards’ influence in this country. From the language and up to the food that Filipinos eat, they have a touch of Spaniards. Some Filipino dishes originated from Spain but later on Filipino style is being incorporated with it to taste like they are our own and to make it more appealing to Pinoy’s taste buds.
