food friday

Food doesn't need to be complicated to taste good. In fact those simple dishes are the ones that are really worth dying for like the paksiw na pata for instance.

It's a very simple dish and the ingridients are readily available in the market. A filipino all time favorite.

Let me share this recipe that another flagship food of my happy childhood.

You will need;

1 pc pork hocks chopped into 3-4 inches wide pieces
enough water to cover the pork hocks in the pot
1 cup dark soysauce
1 cup vinegar
5 pcs bay leaf
1 whole garlic, crushed
1/2 cup banana blossom(soaked)
1/2 cup brown sugar
lots of peppercorn

Then you have to....

Wash the pork hocks then place in a large pot. Add enough water to cover the pork hocks.

Add the remaining ingridients and cook until boiling. Reduce heat to low and simmer until meat is cook, approximately 1.5 to 2 hours.

Serve immediately with steam rice. :)

See how easy!
