Pork and Liver Afritada

Pork and Liver Afritada
Pork and Liver Afritada. At first I was hesitant to make this dish, adding liver to Afritada recipe does not make sense, the dish will now be similar to Kaldereta dish. Never the less due to some request to try cooking Pork and Liver Afritada, I’ll give it a try. My base recipe is similar to my usual Afritada dishes, just click the link list below to check the post.
