Pork Sinigang

When  I think of pork sinigang I imagine the “melts-in-the-mouth pork belly that comes with a sour soup, that’s good enough to give me a satisfied tummy.  There are a variety of sinigang we cook at home, one would be with gabi (taro) which is my sister Kristine’s favorite and another would be with the kangkong (river spinach) and green sili for sinigang, sometimes we just put cabbage, or pechay (bok choy), pechay baguio (wombok) or any other vegetable leaves available that we deem good for sinigang.

Here’s my sister Kristine’s sinigang version based on what she had been cooking so far.



Ingredients:


Pork belly –  500 grams, cut into chunks

Onion – 1 large piece, diced

Garlic -  5 cloves, crushed and diced

Gabi (taro) roots – 1-2 pices, cubed

Green sili for sinigang –

Sinigang mix (she usually uses the knorr sinigang mix sa gabi) – 1 small sachet will do

Water just enough to cover all the ingredients

Patis (fish sauce) – 1-2 tbsp

Salt and pepper to taste

Cooking Procedure:

1)     In a pressure cooker, mix all the ingredients except the sili.  Always follow the instruction manual that comes with the pressure cooker.

2)     Boil for 20 minutes from the moment the pressure cooker starts whistling.

3)     Turn of the fire and add the sili.

Done! Serve with steaming white rice and coke







Also, here’s  My Pork Sinigang Version


Ingredients:

Pork belly –  500 grams, cut into chunks (I prefer the fatty part)

Onion – 1 large piece, diced

Garlic -  5 cloves, crushed and diced

Ripe Tomato – 1 to 2 large pieces

* Kangkong (river spinach) – 1 bundle

* String beans – 10 strings or as desired

Green sili for sinigang – as desired

Sinigang mix sa sampalok – 1 small sachet will do

Water just enough to cover all the ingredients

Patis (fish sauce) – 1-2 tbsp

Salt and pepper to taste

* cabbage can also replace the kangkong and string beans.



Cooking Procedure:

1)     Saute the garlic first, then add the onion. When the onion becomes almost translucent, add the pork belly.  Let simmer for 2 minutes.  Add a cup of water and transfer in a pressure cooker.

2)     In a pressure cooker, mix all the ingredients except the vegetables.

3)     Boil for 20 minutes from the moment the pressure cooker starts whistling. Take out the pressure from the cooker then open.

4)     Let it boil again under medium fire.  Add the string beans and sili and boil for a minute or two then add the kangkong.

5)     Take out from the fire

There goes our sinigang
