This dish was our lunch. I'd cooked this several days ago and stacked it inside my freezer. Today, I didn't have the time to cook, I was doing the laundry and other stuff. So, I just reheat it in the microwave and voila! (may ulam na kami!), hehe! c",)
Good for 4-6 servings
- a piece (1.1 kg) of front pork leg, cut into small serving pcs.
- 8 cloves of garlic
- 1/2 tbsp whole peppercorns
- 1 large red onion
- 3 tbsps of white vinegar
- 3 tbsps of soy sauce
- 3-1/4 cups water
- 2 tbsps of light brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp rock salt
- a pack (25 grams) dried banana blossoms
Finely pound the garlic leaving some skin on. Crush lightly the peppercorns. Mince the onion.
In a thick bottom casserole, put the pork, garlic, pepper, onion, vinegar and soy sauce. Cover. Do not mix. Place over high fire. Bring to boil. Let it boil for a minute before opening the cover. Mix until well-blended. Cook with lid on until liquid dries up. Stirring every now and then.
Add water. Stir. Cover. Bring to boil again. Then, reduce heat to low. Simmer for 1-1/2 hour without opening the cover.
Put the sugar, salt and dried banana blossoms. Cook in low fire for another 20-25 minutes.
Serve with rice.
