Asado is a type of sweet-sour stew from Filipino cuisine. They must eat a lot of meat in the Philippines because it absolutely dominates in almost every Filipino cookbook I could find. The website VeganPinoy.com has an amazing wealth of lovely vegan-adapted Pinoy recipes. This recipe is modified from that website.
1 tablespoon oil
1 cup vegan sausage, sliced, veggie chicken, or any grain meat
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 a lemon’s juice (about 2 tablespoons)
3 tablespoons cup brown sugar
1/2 cup tomato sauce
3 cups cubed potatoes
1.5 cups chunked carrots
In a medium sized pot, cover carrots and potatoes in water. Cover and turn heat to high until they boil. Uncover and boil them about 10 minutes on medium high heat until they are al dente. How fast they reach this state depends upon how small you chop them.
In a separate pan, sauté slices of sausage in oil on medium heat until brown and then flip them over and let them brown on the other side, about 5 minutes. Add the soy sauce, lemon juice, sugar, and tomato sauce to the pan and stir until well blended. Drain the carrots and potatoes and add them to the pan. Toss to coat.
