Cooking at Home - Sinigang na Baboy (Pork in Sour Broth)

Last week, I was really craving for something sour-ish... and since it was also raining, I decided to make some Pork in Sour Broth... which we call in Tagalog, "Sinigang na Baboy".

After work, I drove to the nearest grocery to find pork meat. I had to go to the grocery since this is considered as "Non-Halal" here... so I couldn't just buy it off a nearby store, unless I find a Chinese store.

Anyway, I'm glad I managed to get there on time before the grocery closed and got all my ingredients to make this dish.

Here are the ingredients and procedures.

Ingredients

  • 1 Kilo Pork (cut into chunk cubes)
  • 12 pcs Tamarind (Sampaloc) or sampaloc mixed or Mama Sita Sinigang Mix
  • 1 big Onion (diced)
  • 6 big tomatoes (quartered)
  • 2 pcs Radish (sliced)
  • 1 bundle Sitaw Stringbeans (cut into 2″ long)
  • 1 bundle Kangkong (cut into 2″ long)
  • Salt and Patis to taste
  • 6 cups water

Instructions

  1. Boil Tamarind to soften or boil the mixed sampaloc. Pound and strain all juicesand set aside. If you're using Mama Sita Sinigang Mix, you may add it in while bringing the pork to boil.
  2. In a casserole, bring pork to a boil, lower fire and simmer until pork is tender.
  3. Add onions, tomatoes and Tamarind juice.
  4. Add in all the vegetables.
  5. Season with salt and Patis to taste.
  6. Serve hot.

For those who love sour soups, "Sinigang" is a nice dish to make... also it doesn't take that long to prepare. You could also prepare Sinigang with Prawn, Beef or Fish (particularly, Milkfish or in tagalog "Bangus") which are also good for Sinigang.

Hope you guys enjoy this dish.
