Pork Sinigang With Tamarind Pods

This is a very late post. If you noticed around the bowl, the table has Christmas decorations. I've completely forgotten about this Pork Sinigang With Tamarind Pods that I made last year when I found them at Walmart back in December. I was really surprised to see them there so I grabbed a pack right away to use for Sinigang. It brought me back to when I was a little girl and how my grandmother, ...

New Year’s Eve/Birthday Feast

We usually order take out on New Year's Eve because it also falls on my birthday but since Hubby and I already went on a lunch date the day before I've decided to cook instead. Plus, I've actually already planned it weeks ahead so cooking on my birthday is definitely something I wanted to do.   Maine entree was Southern Pork Barbecue cooked in the crock-pot.   Steamed fresh green beans with garlic powder seasoning.   Rice, of course and Margaret ...

Sweet Chili Fried Pork Chops

I love sweet chili sauce. I use it as a dip for lumpias/egg rolls, sometimes as the sauce base for stir-fry, a marinade, and my favorite and easy way of enjoying it is a sauce to coat with either chicken wings, fish nuggets, or pork chops. Recipe: Sweet Chili Fried Pork Chops Ingredients 4-5 pieces medium pork chops 1 1/2 cup of flour 1½ tsp of salt 1 tsp of black pepper 1 tsp of paprika 1 tsp of chili powder oil for ...

Pork Sotanghoon Noodles With Carrots And Snow Peas

This Pork Sotanghoon Noodles With Carrots And Snow Peas was my comfort food last week. I wanted to drink but it was still a weekday and as much as I love wine, believe it or not, I'm capable of waiting until Friday night. Or at least Thursday night since it was a 3-day weekend for everyone here. Anyway, I already have a few sotanghoon/pancit recipes here but here's one more if you need another with ...

Quick & Easy Pork With Cauliflower, Green Beans, And Napa Cabbage Stir-Fry

I love green beans. My husband loves cauliflower. I love pork. I think he does too or he just learned to tolerate my love for pork. I like stir-fry. My family didn't have a choice but to like stir-fry, HAH! If there's napa cabbage in the vegetable crisper, well hey, add it to the stir-fry too. Simple, quick, crunchy, and with all the vegetables in it, I'd like to believe it's kinda healthy too.   Recipe: Pork ...

Knorr Pork Sinigang With Sweet Peppers, Green Onions, & Green Beans

While reading the book, The Butcher by Jennifer Hillier, I thought about spending a whole week in my kitchen cooking Filipino dishes. Pinoy dishes like Adobo which is basically, sort of, the star in the story aside from 'The Butcher' of course were prominent in the story. There were also references to lumpias, champorado, and sinigang. The Butcher is a psychological drama with the Filipino flair thanks to the grandmother of one of the main ...

Grilled Hoisin Pork Chops

Life is already a bit complicated so let's not make dinner complicated too. Well, at least in the case of this Grilled Hoisin Pork Chops. I mean seriously, it's a 2-ingredient kind of simple dish.

Spicy Pork & Green Peppers Stir-Fry

When I made this Spicy Pork & Green Peppers Stir-Fry, I was actually trying to recreate the peppery beef and green peppers stir-fry that Scott likes to order whenever we have the occasional Chinese food take-out. With the obvious changes of course. I used pork instead of beef and I made it spicier because I was in a everything-must-be-spicy-kick around the time I made this. Well it turns out, I forgot one thing. The ground ...

Spicy Sauteed Pork & Bittergourd

There are already 3 recipes in the archives for Sauteed Pork & Bittergourd in this blog. Here's one with tomatoes, and 2 for Sauteed Pork & Bitter Melon W/ Shrimp Paste(2).

Yes, I'm THAT foodblogger.   Recipe: SPICY SAUTEED PORK & BITTER MELON Ingredients 1 large pork steak, sliced in cubes 1 sm ...

Sweet Chili Swai Nuggets

When I made fish and chips the other day using swai fish fillets I set aside a few of the fried fish nuggets to coat with sweet chili sauce to eat with rice. I had such a hankering for sweet chili flavor so I made some.I'm a grown up, I'd do what I want and eat what I want. Errrmmmmmmm.... Back to the Sweet Chili Swai Nuggets. They were good with white rice. YUM-O! By the ...

Spicy Crab & Green Beans Stir-Fry

I've mentioned before how much I love green beans. I love it so much I should just create its own category in this blog, HAH! My husband is getting tired of green beans but that's fine because that means I'll have more green beans for myself. Since he doesn't like green beans as much as I do I mostly make a stir-fry dish for lunch for me. Like this Spicy Crab & Green Beans Stir-Fry. ...

Honey-Sriracha Chicken Wings

It was apparently National Chicken Wing Day on July 29th. Coincidentally on that day, I took out the wings from the freezer to thaw for that night's dinner. I was just glad to be celebrating wings day on its National day, sort of. I made the usual Hot wings and also made something new which I remember reading about before. Honey-Sriracha wings. I'm a Texas Pete and Tobasco kind of girl when it comes to ...

Laing Ala Dexie

For the first time in my Filipino existence I cooked Laing. I could never bring myself to cook this famous dish from the Bicol region in the Philippines because I know it wouldn't be as good as my Uncle Jun's wife's Laing. Then again, she's Bicolana so that pretty much sealed the deal. I was still really young when I tasted her laing while living in the Philippines but I can still taste it vividly. ...
