Pinoy Spaghetti

I woke up from a nap yesterday thinking I want Jollibee spaghetti but I was too lazy to go out and delivery needs to have a minimum order and its only spag that I want. Since there is a grocery near our place (it will only take 2 minutes to get there). I decided to buy the ingridients for my simple pinoy spaghetti.

So what I did, I grab 400 grams of spaghetti pasta. Boiled it al dente (around 8minutes), drained and set aside.
Then I chopped 1 white onion. Thrown it in a preheated pan with olive oil. Then add the chopped garlic. When the garlic is a bit brown (not burn) I add the 560grams of del monte pinoy style spag sauce and add UFC banana catsup (about half a cup). Season with salt, pepper and sugar. When it simmer thrown in the sliced hotdogs (about 5 pieces), bits of ham and shredded cheese ( I used queso de bola). Wait until the sauce thickens. Then thats it.

Pour over cooked pasta an topped with cheese. sarap!!.

I enjoyed my pinoy spaghetti.

You will need;
1 kilo of pork meat sliced

1/2 cup of Philippine bird's eye pepper (siling labuyo)

3 cups coconut milk

1/2 cup sauted shrimp paste

4 cloves garlic; crushed

1 small onion; chopped

Then What you have to do;

In a cooking pan, place a cup of water and add the pork. simmer until the water disappers Continue cooking until pork starts to render fat and edges turn to brown.

In another pan, sauté minced onion and garlic. Add  the sauté the browned pork. Throw in the chili peppers.

Add sauted shrimp paste and stir, then pour the coconut milk (.you may pour gradually in preference to the amount of sauce you want)
Cook in low fire until pork becomes tender and until a saucy consistency is achieved. Serve hot

Note: I did not use any cooking oil since the pork will render it's own fat will fying and the coconut milk will give natural oils too while cooking.
