Afritada is a simple Filipino dish and this one of my favorites. It is one of those tomato based dishes. This simply means “stewed pork in tomato sauce”, usually cooked with carrots and potatoes.

Afritada is a popular dish in the Philippines, from family gatherings to simple family dinners. My youngest child loves this dish because it is really tasty and I personally love it, too. Now let’s get down to the recipe.


  •  2 lbs pork belly, chopped
  •  1 big potato, cut into wedges
  •  1 big carrot, cut into wedges
  •  3 pieces dried bay leaves
  •  2 cups tomato sauce
  •  1 tsp ground black pepper
  •  1 cup bell pepper, diced
  •  1 tsp garlic, minced
  •  1 cup onion, chopped
  •  2 tbsp cooking oil
  •  2 tbsp fish sauce
  •  salt to taste
  •  all in one seasoning granules

Cooking Procedure:

1. Heat the cooking oil in a pan and sauté the garlic and onions
2. Add the pork and sauté until the outer parts are cooked (approximately 5 minutes)
3. Add fish sauce and let it cook for 10 minutes with low heat
4. Add the bay leaves and tomato sauce then simmer for 5 minutes
5. Add the ground black pepper then pour-in the broth and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes (or until the meat is tender)
6. Put-in the potato and carrots then simmer for 5 to 7 minutes
7. Add the bell pepper
8. Add seasoning granules and salt to taste, simmer for 3 another minutes
(I sometimes add sugar together with the salt, I like it more and it really makes a difference. 1 tbsp is fine.)
Serve hot and enjoy!
