Pork Crackling

This is so unhealthy, I know. But the Pinoys’ love for pork crackling is just so that in most parties specially those that involve beer drinking, there is almost always pork crackling.  So please eat in moderation (even if it is addicting). What you need: about 500 grams pork rind, scored around 2 tablespoons canola …

My Version of the Pork Siomai

I love pork siomai.  I can’t think of any Filipino who does not love pork siomai. I put them in the category of the Pinoy’s pork barbecue — once you start eating it, you can’t stop.  I have tried making them once or twice before but although we finish the batch (my husband would eat …

Pork Afritada

I was craving for Chicken Afritada since last week but we ran out of tomato sauce so I had to use what I had in the pantry and came out with the Chicken Curry (recipe to follow). Now that I have the tomato sauce, I happily went on to cook what I wanted but using …

Pork, Potato and Eggplant Omelette (Tortang Talong)

This is similar to the previous recipe called Pork and Potato Eggplant so you basically will need the same ingredients, except you would need some Lebanese Eggplant. What you need to do: Saute the garlic in oil. Add the onions. When the onions are transparent, add the tomatoes and continue cooking. Add the minced pork …

Pork and Potato Omelette (Filipino Torta)

  My daughter just had her braces on, and I had to think of food that she can easily chew.  I thought of this recipe as this is one of her favorites pre-braces, and I guess I made the right decision.  She ate well (like nothing has changed), though a bit slower.  For her, I …

Pork Blood (yes, blood) Stew (Dinuguan)

OK so I guess non Filipino readers would have gasped and moved on to other recipes once they saw the title, lol.  Dinuguan is one of my favorites but I rarely eat it unless I know who made it.  Best eaten with rice cake I know, but I prefer eating it with steamed rice.  Also, …

Baked Pork Spare Ribs

Last night I was planning to cook Pork Ribs Sinigang as I felt it would be wonderful to have a hot broth for a cold night but my daughter wasn’t in the mood for it since she had bitten the inside of her mouth and there was a tiny sore spot inside that she feels would get worse if she …

Baked Honey Pork Meatball Buns

I had some leftover uncooked longganisa in the fridge and I thought I would turn it to something else as I just cooked a batch the usual way:  by frying and serving them with rice and egg for breakfast. I thought hmmm maybe i can make pork buns today but instead of the usual steam buns, I …

My Mock Dongpo Pork Belly

OK,  so I could call this braised pork but the original recipe (which I of course had to tweak) was for a Dongpo Pork Belly so I will just call it my Mock Dongpo Pork Belly. Because I couldn’t resist putting boiled eggs in it, it actually looked very similar to the Filipino’s pork adobo …

My Simple Pork Spring Rolls

Everytime there is an event in school where my daughter has to bring a plate to share, she always requests Lumpiang Shanghai (or pork spring rolls).  These rolls are always a hit with or without the sauce.  They are usually the first ones to disappear and some parents even try to get more in the sly hahaha …
