Sinigang na baboy (Pork in sour broth)

According to PAGASA where now entering the rainy season. Sinigang na baboy is one of the recipes I usually serve to my family during this season. The soup is great especially during bad weather to give warm and overall the food is delicious and nutritious as well.


  • 1 kilo pork kasim
  • ¼ gabi (lagkitan)
  • 2 pcs. Onions
  • 3 pcs. Tomatoes
  • 2 pcs. Green chili
  • 1 pack Knorr tamarind powdered mix with gabi
  • 1 pc. medium size radish (labanos)
  • 1 pc. large eggplant (talong)
  • 7 pcs. Long stringed beans (sitaw)
  • 1 bundle kangkong
  • Fish sauce (patis)
  • 1 ¼ liters of water

Cooking Procedures:

  • Bring pork to boil in a casserole with 1 ¼ liters of water uncover under high flame. Remove the scum as it rises on the first boil. When done with the scum set the flame on medium heat, add the peeled gabi cut into half per piece then cover. Boil for about 30 minutes or until the pork is tender. The kasim part of the pork is the part that easy to get tender.
  • While waiting for the pork to get tender prepare the remaining ingredients. Peel the onions then wash together with tomatoes and green chili. Cut onions and tomatoes into 6 parts per piece. Peel radish then wash together with eggplant, stringed beans and kangkong. Cut radish diagonally about .5” width and the stringed beans about 2” long. Pick or pluck the kangkong leaves then set aside. Cut eggplant about .5” then soak in a bowl with water.
  • When pork is tender put onions, tomatoes, stringed beans, radish, eggplant, green sili and Knorr powdered mix. Bring to boil for 10 minutes uncovered.
  • Add fish sauce to taste and kangkong leaves and boil for 3 minutes covered.

my hubby loves sinigang... it one of his favorite filipino dish.. but over here.. it's hard to find some kangkong.. so we improvise on the vegetable instead.
