KBL stands for Kadyos, Baboy, at Langka. This is a popular Ilonggo dish that I enjoy eating. Kadyos (or kadyos) are pigeon peas. I know that this ingredient is new to some of our readers, let me tell you more information about it.
This Spicy Bopis Recipe is the response to your requests about a spicier version with sauce using the minimum ingredients possible. If you remember, we were able to post a Bopis Recipe over a year ago. I shot the video when I went to the Philippines. Being there made it possible for me to get […]
Pork Guisantes is a tomato base pork stew. This recipe is similar to Pork Menudo and Pork Afritada, but some ingredients vary.
I use tomato sauce to make this dish back in the days. I only started having canned diced tomatoes a few years ago – when I ran out of tomato sauce. I was in the middle of the cooking process when I realized that I already consumed the last can of tomato sauce for the Pinoy Spaghetti that I made a day before. It was a good thing that I was able to find a can of diced tomatoes sitting in the pantry. The Pork Guisantes dish that I made that day had a fresher flavor. That discovery made me use canned diced tomatoes (or fresh diced tomatoes) ever since.
This is a typical everyday dish fit for lunch or dinner. It is best served with hot steamed rice.
Do you love Pork Adobo? How about creating a twist to the typical Pork Adobo Recipe?
I like to eat garlic fried rice in the morning. Dishes like Tapsilog and Longsilog excite me. There are times when I want to keep it simple by having sinangag na dilis with my fried rice along with some spicy vinegar dip (sinamak). There are even times when I want something unique, something that I’ve never had for a long time.
Crispy Adobo Flakes is one of the dishes that I am referring. If I want to have Crispy Adobo flakes, I should plan ahead for it. Well…even if there is a plan, it does not happen the entire time. I have the tendency to lose control by eating the adobo before they turn into crispy flakes – but not this time. I made sure that I document the steps so that you too can make your own for breakfast.
Crispy Pata is a famous Filipino pork dish that uses a whole pig’s leg. The leg (or pata) is made tender by simmering in water along with other spices. It is then rubbed with seasonings and deep-fried until the texture becomes very crunchy.
This dish can be eaten as a main dish along with pickled green papaya (atchara) and a dipping sauce made from soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, and chopped onions. It can also be served as beer food or “pulutan” – which is what Crispy Pata is popularly known for.
By looking at the procedure, you might be thinking that it is easy to cook Crispy Pata. The procedure seems simple, yet the process involves dangerous steps that need extra caution.
Deep frying a whole leg can cause the hot oil to be uncontrollable. It is a must to slightly (not fully, as the cover can pop-up due to pressure) cover the cooking pot while frying. There are also other recipes that require the leg to be frozen then deep-fried immediately. I do not recommend that, at all. The technique can be effective, but it is very risky. It is better to fry the leg in medium heat until it becomes crispy.
