Pork and Beef Masala

Pork & Beef Masala

A combination of Beef and Pork always turns yum as in the case of the Pork and Beef Stew (click here). However, the Pork and Beef Stew preparation is mild, whereas the Pork and Beef Masala uses a mix of common Goan spices to make it flavoursome and mildly spicy. Try it out soon.
