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, ...

Pork Adobo With Coconut Milk

I have different adobo recipes in this food blog such as PORK ADOBO W/ COCONUT MILK & SCALLIONS, then the HOW TO COOK PORK ADOBO TUTORIAL, Pork Hocks Adobo With Potatoes, Baked Chicken Wings Adobo, Baked Chicken Coconut Adobo, and the Pork & Chicken Wings White Adobo In Apple Cider Vinegar. It turns out, I don't have a regular pork adobo with coconut milk recipe in the archives. Adding coconut milk is my favorite 'twist' ...

Pork Sisig With Celery & Wasabi Mayonnaise

I'm always thinking of ways to incorporate the Wasabi Mayonnaise into a few dishes so I figured I'd add it to pork sisig with celery as well.

The latter asks for goat brain but since that's not readily available, you can substitute it ...

In some regions of the Philippines, coconut milk is one of the ingredients in the dish called ADOBO which happens to be one of my favorite Filipino Dishes. It’s either in pork or chicken. Pork is my pick any day. Anyhoooo, in my cooking years, I’ve never made adobo with coconut milk until a week ago. I finally opened my new Aroma digital rice cooker to cook rice, of course after not eating rice for ...

Pinakbet Sans Okra and Calabasa

After braving the Farmer’s Market a few weeks ago, I stopped at the Filipino store on our way home and grabbed a few items for my Pinoy Goodies supplies. I also ended up grabbing fresh vegetables to make one of my favorite Filipino dishes which is Pinakbet. If you haven’t noticed, my pinakbet is missing a couple of key ingredients. These are okra and calabasa (squash). Well, I’m allergic to okra, and I ...

Pork & Bittermelon Stir-Fry

I grabbed a couple of bittermelons from my last trip to the Asian store over there in Raleigh. I actually almost forgot I had them until I found a plastic pushed all the way back in the fridge. Good thing I discovered them before they went bad. Whewww. I would hate myself knowing I just wasted perfectly good bittermelons (Ampalaya).  This vegetable happens to be my favorite Filipino vegetable. Even though it’s ...
