  1. hi im cooking it right now.. and do step by step but i've noticed that you forgot to add the sweet pickles ;) hope mine turns out good too coz yours looks soooo delicious.. thanks...

  2. yes i noticed the sweet pickles were also missed in the instructions.. but the picture looks yummy...yes for sharing this recipe..

  3. I did this and notice the pickles wasnt there so i ended up putting it at the end.. Taste weird after the pickles! The olives was enough. I guess. Lol! But anyways, everyone ate it. Its like doing a beef asada then putting the other ingredients on it. Thank you for this recipe. I'll put my own twist on this next time i cook it. The liver can be done as fried adobo with lemon and i guess the pickles should be along with the tomato sauce to adjust how much olives to put. Lol! Good luck to those who are next to make this. Great recipe if you're learning to cook like me. :)

  4. I overlooked when to add the pickles, just add it during the final stages of cooking togerther with the bell peppers and cheese.
