Pregnancy Craving: Sinigang na Baboy
Jul 25th, 2012 by niceyfemme

I feel like I’m naglilihi again. Certain cravings and aversions towards food I felt during my first trimester but that was much worse because I was always hungry but can’t eat. Just thinking about that phase of my pregnancy makes me a bit nervous as that was really difficult for me. Now I can eat… just very picky. It’s hard to find contentment in the food I eat. The usual favorites has let me down so many times. But sinigang na baboy has been good on me. That when I don’t know what to eat, I’ll have this. I have made a post about this dish before, the more complete Sinigang na Baboy year 2011. 🙂

No need to have all the ingredients, just the pork belly, taro root or gabi and kangkong or swamp cabbage and I’m happy na. Or maybe this is an act of desperation. 🙂

Sinigang for 2 pax.

I was forbidden to eat those veggies with too many seeds as that will worsen my fingers and joints pain. I know I should be eating Salmon Sinigang instead and I used to love that dish, but I just can’t stand the taste of salmon since I got pregnant. Read the rest of this entry »

Sinigang na Baboy
Aug 8th, 2011 by niceyfemme

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. ♥☻♥☻♥
