Slow Cooked Hardinera 

Hardinera is a dish that we only eat at Christmas or town fiestas. It’s like a combination meatloaf and menudo, and somewhat the same as Everlasting – another type of Filipino Meatloaf prepared for Christmas.

They are usually sold in Llaneras for about a hundred to 200 pesos in markets. This is one of the dishes that is daunting for me since it involves an oven. Since it’s my birthday, I decided to try it in my slow cooker and it actually works!

You can actually steam this too. But I prefer the “baked” effect.

Don’t have a slow cooker yet? Read here why you should buy one! If you’re a working mom, this is perfect for you. You can set it up in the morning and come home to a wonderfully smelling home with your dinner already cooked!
