Sinigang na Baboy (Sour Soup Pork)

Here's one of my specialties and my favorite food as well...Sinigang na Baboy! I've learned to cook delicacy from my father since this is his favorite viand as well. Especially when my father is in the mood to cook, he would often cook Sinigang. Here are the engridients of my ever favorite Sinigang na Pork Liempo.


1 clove onions, sliced
7 pcs. okra, sliced
3 pcs. red tomatoes, sliced
2 pcs. gabi, sliced
2 pcs. green chili (siling pangsigang)
salt , patis, tamarind powder with gabi, 6-8 glasses of water

1 tali kangkong

3 pcs. eggplant, cut into small pieces

1/2 kilo pork liempo, sliced


1) In a big pot, saute tomatoes, onion and sea salt. I usually mash tomatoes with a cooking spoon as it's juice would enhance the flavor of the dish. Add chilis, gabi and pork liempo.
2) Pour just enough water to cover them and bring to boil. Cook for an hour or until the pork is tender and gabi are tender
3) Pour the rest of the ingridients in the pan and cook until vegetables are cooked. Bring to boil.
4) Pour out the tamarind powder with gabi and season with patis to taste.
5) Serve hot it is! Enjoy!

The first dish I'll gonna share with you is one of the easiest dish I know - TINOLA or Chicken Ginger Stew with Vegetables in English.

* 1 liter of water
* 5 garlic cloves, minced
* 4 tbsp. cooking oil
* 2 tbsp. patis (fish sauce)


1) In a stock pot, heat oil and saute garlic, onion and ginger
2) Add water and the chicken
3) Bring to a boil and simmer for about 20 minutes or until chicken is almost done
4) Season with patis
5) Add papaya and continue to simmer for additional 5 minutes or until papaya
softens but not overcooked
