Pocherong Tinomas is a copy cat dish from Kanin Club prepared with tender beef ribs flavoured with Hamon then served with sweet potatoes and saba bananas
From Kanin Clubs menu it was described as “Beef ribs stewed until tender, flavoured with Hamon ni Tomas”, so what does Hamon ni Tomas means? I really don’t have any idea. I then searched online and read blogs who reviewed this place and I saw one blog called Blips Network who have first-hand account on some of Kanin Clubs offering and this was one of it. In the site Pocherong Tinomas was described as:
“Kanin Club’s take on pochero is interesting: it’s more like stew rather than soup, the saba was fried, and they added fried camote. They used beef, and added some ham”
That gave me a bit of clarity but still no Tinomas clue? the only Tinomas or Tomas that I know was the lechon sauce from Mang Tomas, will this be it? Well I am not sure but I will use it since most of Kanin Clubs menu items are a fusion of two Filipino dishes so my assumption is that this one is a marriage between Puchero and Lechon Paksiw, hopefully I am right.
As I prepare the dish I was quite hesitant on adding the Mang Tomas sauce but sometimes you have to take the leap of faith to find out. Minutes later when the dish is ready it was tasting time and guess what? It tasted great, I am not sure though if this is the real recipe but I loved it! Now it’s up to you to let me know by trying the recipe if it has the same taste as the Pochero they offer in Kanin Club.
