Pork Sinigang

Rated as 4.4 out of 5 Stars
4

"Filipino soup cooked with pork. Serve with rice and for additional sauce, use soy or fish sauce. If you want to, you can add what Filipinos call gabi gabi, which is a small taro root. When peeled they look like potatoes. You can add 5 to 6 of them when you add the water and make sure they are cooked through. Take them out when they are cooked because they can get too soft."

  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Season with salt. Stir in the ginger, tomatoes, and pork chops. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Turn the pork occasionally, until browned. Pour in the water and tamarind soup base. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat. Continue simmering until the pork is tender and cooked through, about 30 minutes. Stir in green beans and cook until tender.

I cooked this for my fiancee and he loved it! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

this is yummy

I make this like my friend I work with makes it. She uses radishes and spinach, no tomato or ginger but I would try it with both. Tamarind soup base is hard to find where I live, only one little...

I prefer using pork riblets(pork spareribs cut into bite sized pieces) rather than whole pork chops. Also we add Daikon radish sliced into 2" - 4" pieces. One reviewer says she can't get the Tam...

Honestly, I tried this recipe and it just wasn't like others I've tried. I did a major swap out from pork chops to country style ribs, pork shoulder/pork butt or picnic pork, basically something...

Added fish sauce. That and the tamarind seasoning are the secret ingredients. Also added bok choy, kale (I was out of spinach) and gabi (toro). Delish! Thanks for the recipe!

Good flavor but added a little fish sauce to reduce the sour taste and added okra, finger peppers & bokchoy. Eggplants are good to add but it was $11 so I didn't buy it. Thanks for the recipe!
