Filipino Recipe: Sinigang na Baboy (Pork Sinigang)

Most Filipinos really love to cook and most especially love to EAT! This time, I will going to share a "lutong bahay" or home-made recipe.

Recipe for Today: Sinigang na Baboy (Pork Sinigang)


Ingredients:
  • 3/4 kilo Pork, cut into chunks

  • 3 tomatoes, sliced

  • 2 onions, diced

  • 5 cloves of garlic, minced

  • 100 grams Kangkong (river spinach)

  • 100 grams String beans

  • 2 pieces horse radishes, sliced

  • 3 pieces gabi (taro), pealed

  • 2 pieces sili pag sigang (green finger pepper)

  • 200 grams sampalok (tamarind)

  • 3 tablespoons of patis (fish sauce)

  • 1 liter of rice wash or water


Sinigang Cooking Instructions:

  • Boil sampalok in water until the shell shows cracks. Let cool then peal off the shells and with a strainer, pour samplalok (including water) into a bowl. Gently massage the sampalok meat off the seeds, strain again.
  • In a pot, sauté garlic and onion then add the tomatoes. Let simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Add pork and fish sauce then add the rice wash. Bring to a boil then simmer for 15 minutes then add the gabi. Continue to simmer for another 15 minutes or until the pork is tender.
  • Add the horse radish and simmer for 10 minutes then add the string beans, kangkong and sili (for spice-optional). Let boil for 2 minutes.
  • Serve piping hot.

Sinigang Cooking Tip:

  • Instead of sampalok fruit (tamarind), you can substitute it with any commercial souring seasoning like Knorr sampalok seasoning or tamarind bouillon cubes for this pork sinigang recipe.
