Pork Binagoongan Recipe

Binagoongan or Pork Binagoongan is an authentic Filipino Recipe. This Pork Binagoongan recipe involves pork being sauteed in tomato and stewed in shrimp paste. The dish is then garnished with slices of chili before serving.


In this Binagoongan recipe, the  shrimp paste has the most dominant flavor. In order to balance the salty taste, a reasonable amount of vinegar along with some water are added. This can also be balanced by not placing too much shrimp paste. It is recommended that you start with half the amount of the required shrimp paste. Try to taste for saltiness, you can add more shrimp paste until the saltiness is tailored to your preference.

      I dont eat pork so I made this with tilapia fillet, cooked the same way you cooked the pork, and fried eggplant slices. It’s very good and relatively easy to make. Thanks for the recipe!
