Recipe: Karneng Asada para kay Jose Rizal

Meat Asado for Jose Rizal

Another scrumptious recipe from our favourite GMAnetwork channel television.  The recipe below is apparently for Jose Rizal.


José Protacio Rizal Mercado y Alonso Realonda (June 19, 1861 – December 30, 1896)

Probably not really for him as he has been dead for more than a century. He was executed by the orders of Spaniards at Bagumbayan (always be known to be as Luneta or Luneta Park, which is now known as Rizal Park) more than a century ago for alledged inciting Filipinos to take up arms against the Spaniard, who had colonised the Philippines for 333 years.

Filipinos honour Rizal for his many accomplishments, his intelligence, his novels, his arts, his knowledge, his medical background and most especially for inspiring common Filipinos who had been downtrodden and enslaved by the Spaniards.

Rizal has a an exhaustive written materials that includes his two novels, Noli Me Tangere (Touch Me Not) and El Filibusterismo (The Filibuster) which so inspired the likes of Andres Bonifacio (Jury is still out, whether he should really be the National Hero and not Rizal) that he founded KKK (Kataastaasan, Kagalanggalangan Katipunan ng Mga Anak ng Bayan – my rough tanslation being: Highest, Most Honoured Organisation of the Children of the Nation, LOL).
