Puto at Dinuguan

Even I am just at home, I still buy easy-to-cook or ready-to-heat meals in case I am busy and have no time to cook, if I am not feeling well or if I am just feeling lazy to cook from scratch. So I am thankful because there are “Heat and Eat” that you can buy in the supermarket and even online. A few months ago, I discovered San Miguel Frozen & Chilled and fortunately, they can deliver to my address so since then, I’ve been ordering from their store. 

I already blog about their burger, chicken karaage, and tail-on shrimp, last week I finally tried their Dinuguan Heat and Eat meal. I bought this because I don’t know how to cook this meal and I don’t think I will ever try it. I usually order dinuguan in the restaurant na lang, I like the dinuguan of Kanin Club,Goldilocks, Razon’s of Guagua,and Mang Inasal  

I tried Cebu’s Best Rico’s Dinuguan frozen food last year but it was not a hit so it took me a while to order the Purefoods Dinuguan. 1kg is PHP480 so it is a little bit expensive but I am happy that it tastes good, kalasa niya yung Goldilocks Dinuguan. You can reheat this on the pan or microwave. 

Pan Heating: Heat frozen products at medium flame for 8 to 10 minutes and stir occasionally. 
Microwave: Transfer contents to a microwavable container and heat frozen product at medium to high setting for 8 to 10 minutes. Stir halfway. 

The perfect partner of Dinuguan is puto so I remember the Sarap Puto Mix that I bought last year and I immediately cook it bago pa maexpire. Hehehe! It’s been a while since the last time I cooked puto, hindi na gaano trip ng anak ko ito but since last year, nahilig na ulit siya sa puto. I cook puto from scratch or sometimes I used pancake mix or instant puto mix. Check my old blog posts. 

This time, I tried the Sarap Pinoy Puto Mix P60.75, one box is divided into two packs of 200g but I decided to cook everything . You can buy this online, medyo mas mahal lang ng konti. The taste of the puto is good naman, though hindi siya yung sticky puto na parang kakanin. What I don’t like is, 25 minutes to cook so it took me few hours just to finish everything because I have a small steamer. More or less 40 pieces yung nagawa ko, estimate ko kasi kinakain na agad ng mag-ama ko after may maluto. Hehehe!
