    Lusog Notes
    This pinoy dish is high in protein which is important for growth, development and repair of the body tissues. It is also a source of niacin that promotes normal digestion and healthy skin.
    Chef`s Tip
    Season your meat/chicken or fish with salt and pepper only right before frying or grilling to keep it moist. Salt draws out the moisture as it sits on your meat. So there's a tendency for dry meat if you add it too early.
