    your not putting soy sauce? maybe i’ll try this recipe of yours thanks a lot

  17. Joyce Ira

    Hi Noly,

    Some people use soy sauce for their recipe and it turns really good too. However, based on experience and from watching my mom’s cooking, she always use tomato sauce for mechado. That simply explains why I do the same too :)
