Really good for short ribs. I dredged the ribs in flour and browned them first, threw it all into a slow cooker and added bay leaf and garlic powder. - 12 Jan 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I added garlic salt and seasoned salt after it was cooked. It made the dish much tastier. If you don't "doctor" it a bit, it is incredibly bland. That being said, the fresh veggies were wonderful. Meat was just so-so. - 10 Mar 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a great Filipino recipe. The real authentic way to eat this is over rice and to have patis aka fish sauce on the side so the dish isn't so bland. - 17 Oct 2016 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
