  • 1 cup mung beans
  • 1 piece Knorr Pork Cube
  • 4 ounces lechon kawali sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups kangkong chopped
  • 1 piece tomato diced
  • 1/2 cup crushed chicharon
  • 1 piece onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 cups water
  • Patis and ground white pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons cooking oil


  • Soak mung beans in 3 cups water overnight. Drain water.
  • Heat oil in a cooking pot. Saute onion, garlic, and tomato. Once onion and tomato softens, add lechon kawali. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Note: if using raw pork, saute until it turns light brown.
  • Add soaked mung beans and saute for 2 minute. Pour water. Let boil.
  • Add Knorr Pork Cube. Stir. Cover and boil between low to medium heat until mung beans are soft (around 30 minutes). Add water if needed. Note: if using un-soaked mung beans, the boiling time will be longer.
  • Add chicharon and kangkong. Cook for 2 minutes.
  • Season with patis and ground white pepper.
  • Transfer to a serving bowl. Serve and enjoy!
