The pochero is a kind of stew that came from Spain. The name of the dish comes from the Spanish word for stewpot, “puchero.” It is also known as bulalo in the northern part of the archipelago. It is one of the best-loved Cebuano dishes when the sky turns dark and rain comes falling down into the ground. It is made of beef shanks, potatoes, corn, onions, pechay, and peppercorn.
