Pocherong Bisaya is a soup dish of beef leg shanks, corn, saba bananas, bamboo shoots and leafy vegetables cooked in a stock enhanced by ginger & lemongrass
The first time I saw this I was confused, they call it Pochero but it looks like Bulalo but when you taste it then it’s a totally different dish. The subtle differences form both mentioned dishes just gives it an edge in terms of flavour complexity. The lemongrass gives it freshness, the garlic adds more savoury aspect to the dish, the sweet corn and saba bananas give it a bit of sweetness while the bamboo shoots give it an interesting texture.
Overall, it’s a different soup, a better one? well this can be subject to debate as it all boils down to your preferences. For me I find Pochero, Bulalo and Pocherong Bisaya equally satisfying and they have their best times to consume it. Bulalo will be perfect for a cold wet night, Pocherong Bisaya will be good at any day, due to its freshness factor it can be eaten on a summer day like Tom Yam and for Pochero is reserved if you want something saucy but not too soupy.
