Pork chop can also be used to make sinigang. I simply call it pork chop sinigang. You can use pork chop with fat on (this is the usual cut in the Philippines), or otherwise. I needed to travel for an hour south of my location to get pork chops with fat, so I decided to use the slices without fat, which I got from my local grocer.
Preparing pork chop sinigang is like cooking any type of pork sinigang. This method did not require any oil because I did not sauté the meat. It was simply boiled.
The vegetables included here are okra, eggplant, long green peppers, string beans or snake beans, onion, and spinach. I wish I had daikon radish and gabi to make this stand out. If you want your pork chop sinigang spicy, use light green banana peppers instead.
I used patis (fish sauce) for this recipe. You may add salt as a substitute. Kangkong is still best for sinigang. However, spinach is the best alternative ingredient that I can find here at this time.
