  • 3 ounces misua
  • 1 Knorr Pork cube
  • 1 medium patola sliced
  • ½ cup chopped scallion
  • 4 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 medium yellow onion minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons patis fish sauce
  • 6 to 8 cups water
  • 3 tablespoons cooking oil

Meatball ingredients:

  • 1 lb. ground pork
  • 1 egg
  • 1 medium yellow onion minced
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


  • Prepare the meatballs by combining all meatball ingredients in a bowl. Mix well. Scoop 1 1/2 tablespoons of the mixture and form into a ball. Perform this step until the mixture is completely consumed. Set aside.
  • Heat oil in a cooking pot. Once the oil becomes hot, pan fry the meatballs until the outer part turns light brown. Note: the meatballs do not need to be cooked completely at this point.
  • Remove the meatballs from the pot. Set aside.
  • Using the remaining oil, saute garlic until golden brown. Add onion. Continue to cook until the onion softens.
  • Pour water. Let boil. Add the pan-fried meatballs back.
  • Add Knorr Pork Cube. Stir. Cover the pot and cook in medium heat for 15 minutes.
  • Add misua and patola. Cover and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Season with patis and ground black pepper. Stir.
  • Add scallions. Transfer to a serving bowl.
  • Serve. Share and enjoy!
