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.
