I noticed that I have been cooking dishes that are somehow new to our household. Luckily, all of them turned out successful and yummy so far. So when we were eating lunch, I cornered Babe. I asked him to take a picture of the dish every time I cook something new. He agreed right away, knowing that I will blog about it as well. I was unable to capture the previous dishes (I was successful with Adobo sa Gata, Bicol Express, and Arroz ala Cubana), however, Babe did remember taking pictures of our lunch earlier. I present to you, Pork Binagoongan!
What you’ll need:
- Pork kasim
- Bagoong alamang
- onion and garlic
- siling labuyo (optional)
What you need to do:
- Cut pork into desired shape and portion. Set aside.
- Rinse the shrimp paste (alamang) on a strainer to remove excess salt. Drain and set aside.
- Saute onion and garlic, add the port once the onion color starts to clear.
- When pork is tender, add the shrimp paste. Add vinegar and sugar, just enough to achieve the sweet and sour flavor. Cover the pan.
- Taste after about 5 minutes to see if vinegar has cooked. If flavor is to your satisfaction, add the sliced eggplant. Add a few tablespoon of water and cover for about 5 minutes.
- Once eggplant is cooked, you are good to go. You can also add a siling labuyo if you prefer the dish to be spicy.
- Serve with rice and a smile 🙂
