kare-kare was cooked traditionally with freshly ground roasted peanuts and rice. I haven't tried though. I find the procedure too much time for today’s busy lifestyle. So What I do, I used ready mixes. :)

So for my easy kare-kare here is my recipe...

You will need,

1k pork (I used kasim)
1 bunch of pechay
1 bunch of string beans
3 eggplant sliced diagonally
1/4 cup banana blossom
1-pack mama sita kare kare mix dissolve in 1 cup broth/water
1 tbsp of peanut butter
another 1 cup of broth
onion chopped
garlic chopped


In a pot, boil the pork for 10-15 minutes until tender. Cut in serving pieces and set aside the broth

In a saucepan, saute the onions and garlic. Then add the eggplant, string beans saute for 5 minutes. add the pechay then the banana blossom. Set aside. (I do cook my vegetable separately so it wont be overcook)

In a separate saucepan, drizzle oil. Thrown in the onion and garlic. Add the pork. cooked for 5 minutes. Then add the cup broth let it simmer. Then add the mama sita kare kare mix dissolved in broth/water. Then peanut butter. Mix until the peanut butter is dissolved. At this time, the sauce will slowly thickens. Make sure you lessen the heat. Simmer for another minute.

You can add the vegetable at the pot or add the vegetable when serving. I prefer the last option. :)

Serve hot with bagoong alamang.

By the way, I posted seafood kare-kare before. Maybe you want to check it too.
