Pork Leg (Pata) Sinigang

Sinigang has always been one of my favorite dishes. I remember back in college where every Sunday is sinigang day. I would eat sinigang from lunch, dinner and the morning after (if there’s still any left). I believe I could eat it continuously and not get tired of it. I just love the softness of the pork and the sourness of the soup.

Aside from that, I also like bulalo. One day, when I was craving for bulalo, my friends brought me to bulaluhan sa ramirez. We ordered their regular bulalo which tasted more of sinigang due to sourness. I was confused but I liked it. You need to order their special bulalo to get the nilagang baka version. Another resto nearby that serves the same would be Bulaluhan sa Espana (open 24 hours). These two places became my solution to my ad hoc bulalo/sinigang cravings. Sadly, I’m already living in Makati and they are not so accessible anymore. This is why one day; I decided to try to recreate that experience through cooking!

Till next time,

Allen

PS: one thing I learned from this experience is to cook more rice than usual! I forgot how sinigang makes me a rice beast.

Instructions
Optional Steps
  1. Saute onions and tomatoes for a few minutes then add the pork into the pan. Just fry it a bit until all the raw red color turn into white / some parts brown. Once done, transfer to a pot.
  2. Add onions and simmer for 5 minutes then add Sinigang Mix
Cooking Process
  1. Start the cooking by bringing it to a boil (1600 to 2100 in the induction) then lower the heat (400-800 in induction). Leave this covered for 50-70 minutes.
  2. At any time while simmering; add the sinigang mix and stir it a bit to mix it up.
  3. If you want to add veggies; add them and continue to simmer an additional 5 minutes.
  4. Enjoy! :)
Recipe Notes

I used pork leg (pata) for this but regular pork cuts would do. I don't know what cut they use though (lots of bones, fat, cartilage and less pork) but it think this is better as it has more pork!

This would be the first time that I used a flavoring mix (sinigang mix) to achieve flavor. As you might have noticed, there's no veggies on this recipe and that was how I planned it. I'll study and work on other sinigang recipes that have veggies.

Update: Added tomatoes and whatever greens that I could find (this time lettuce).
