Pork Sinigang

Pork Sinigang
Rain rain go away..its been raining for several days already. And everybody's craving for a hot,hot,hot sinigang! Let's see what's available in the fridge. Pork spareribs and plenty of veggies. Perfect!

Sinigang is another Filipino soup or stew dish with tamarind which is distinctly known for its sour taste.
Other varieties for this dish would use guava, kalamansi, kamias, santol or raw mango as souring ingredient. But sampalok is the most popular. Powdered sinigang mix and bouillon cubes are now available in the market which are more convenient to use.

Meat for this recipe could be pork, beef, fish or shrimp. Commonly used vegetables for this dish includes raddish, gabi, kangkong, eggplant, sitaw , sigarilyas and okra.

For this recipe, I used the following ingredients:

2 pcs gabi
1 cup
1 radish (sliced thinly)

3 pcs okra (cut in half)
1 onion (chopped)
30g powdered sampalok mix (you can add more as desired)
3 pcs siling haba (green)
fish salt (to taste)
1 liter water
