Mechadong Baka is also Known as Beef Mechado. It is a Filipino beef stew dish that looks similar to kaldereta and afritada. So, what makes this dish different? I think that the addiiton of lemon or calamansi made it a bit different from the others.
This is a quick version on how to cook mechado because I used a pressure cooker. It only took me 20 minutes to make the beef tender and an additional 15 minutes more to complete the entire dish.
I love my mechado with warm white rice and I like to put more sauce on top of the rice.
Tara! Kain na tayo.
