Pork Sinigang

Cooking pork sinigang is definitely one of the easiest recipes and a must-know to get the kids to eat their vegetables. It’s a Filipino favorite and a weekly staple at the dinner table. Most cooks will skip the sautΓ©ing part and will be all about boiling the meat, but we like to include this step and brown the pork a bit which gives off a deeper, more full-bodied broth. A slow and gentle simmer will really bring out the juices from the bones and give a richer soup base for the recipe- the longer simmering time, the better. And if you have the time, cooking the bones in a slow cooker is worth the wait!Β  We like using a powder-based mix with gabiΒ when using this type of meat to have a nice thicker soup consistency for that savory broth. The level of sourness is of course a matter of preference, so add more sinigang mix accordingly and balance the taste with some fish sauce. Serve hot!
