Pork sinigang was a staple in my home growing up. Although we had it pretty often, we never grew tired of it. Now, I find myself cooking the same recipe for my family and they seem to love it more and more each time we have it. Hope you enjoy the recipe! Happy Eating!
2 pounds of pork ribs cut into 2-3 inches
2 packets of Knorr sinigang tamarind soup base
2 yellow peppers
1 large onion peeled and sliced
2 medium tomatoes cut into wedges
1/2 pound long string beans cut 3 inches long
2 eggplants cut into wedges
1 taro peeled and cut into wedges
4 bundles of bok choy
patis (fish sauce)
1. season the pork lightly with salt to your liking and add to a large pot of water. Water level should be enough to cover the amount of pork with an excess of 1.5 inches above the pork. Add Yellow Peppers, Onions, tomatoes, and one sinigang packet. Bring to a medium boil.
2. When pork begins to change color and a film collects at the top, remove the brown film. Add A few drops of patis (to your liking), taro, and eggplant. Add the other packet of Knorr (I prefer it extra sour so if you like a milder soup add less). Boil until meat is extremely tender and taro is cooked- start with a medium boil and reduce to low boil after 15 minutes. stir occasionally.
3. When pork is very tender-Add a few more dashes of patis and then add the rest of the veggies. Spoon the soup over the veggies. Let boil for about 10 minutes longer or until veggies are cooked.
4. Serve over white rice…
And there you have it! A taste of filipino comfort in piping hot bowl of soup!
