Been craving for Sinigang na Baboy (Pork in Tamarind Soup) recently so I let it over power me. 🙂
This is sinigang my way. Just perfect.
I am very particular with my sinigang though, well like with the other dishes I cook. I NEED native yam first, without it then I’d rather not cook this sinigang at all. Then I need pork belly ( liempo). This is just the perfect cut of pork for this. Then I need completely ripe red tomatoes. Then fresh okra, sitaw (string beans), labanos (radish), kang kong (water spinach) and talong (eggplant) which is optional in this dish. I just don’t like eggplant wet, but I would kill for fried eggplants yummm!
Going back to sinigang, this is how I cook this. I boil the cut up pork belly in not much water with onions and tomatoes with fish sauce. Then I add in sitaw with gabi. (I like my gabi real soft.) Then after a minute I add in the okra and labanos. Then talong and kang kong. Then season with tamarind and salt.
To those new moms out there, have your baby monitors on and savor this delicioso sour soup, this will surely revive you.
I could eat this for like a week straight. Rediscovered love for sinigang is sweet. ♥☻♥☻♥
