    I just tried your recipe but didn’t follow the 3 cups of vinegar becaue i’m sure it would be very sour and for sure it was a bit sour just by using 6 tbsp of vinegar. I used paprika instead of asuete because I don’t have any. The picture looks so good but not the same when cooked using your recipe. Also, I don’t understand why the potatoes needs to be fried until golden brown.

    This looks like a recipe for adobo, not asado (except for the tomato part). Interesting, but it doesn’t look the asado I grew up loving. Would love to try, though, and see how this pans out.

    This is not asado! It tastes adobo than asado! It’s a mistake!
