Pork Binagoongan sa Gata

Pork Binagoongan sa Gata
(Pork in Shrimp Paste simmered in coconut cream)

This is one popular Filipino dish I crave every once in a while. Traditionally this is done by simply sauteeing the ingredients. But adding coconut cream, what else can I tell you but Hmn!More yummy!

So for today's lunch ( even if its 34°C outside) let's have spicy Pork Binagoongan... Ooops ~ skip your diet for now 'coz cupfuls of rice entails this one. :)

Pork Binagoongan sa Gata
(Pork in Shrimp Paste simmered in coconut cream)

Pork Binagoongan sa Gata

1 kilo pork kasim , cubed
3 tbsp shrimp paste
2 cups coconut cream
1/3 cup vinegar
8 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
1 thumbsized ginger, grated
2 pcs bay leaves
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp cooking oil
chopped green and red peppers (as desired)


  • Place the meat cubes in a bowl, pour in the vinegar. Set aside for about 10 mins.
  • In a pan, heat oil, sautee onions and garlic. Stir in the meat. Let slightly brown.
  • Add the shrimp paste.
  • Pour in the coconut cream, sugar, bay leaves and half portion of grated ginger. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until pork is tender and the coconut cream reduced. I  used pork kasim (shoulder), its a tender part of pork and requires lesser time to cook.
  • I did not add salt because the shrimp paste was salty enough. You may adjust the taste as preferred.
  • When cooked, turn off the heat, then add the chopped chilis and the rest of the grated ginger.
  • Serve with rice. Enjoy!

How long to marinate the pork with vinegar?

@Geo Cap
Sorry i forgot to mention that, i've just added it anyway.
A good 5-10 mins would be enough, no need to marinate it for long hours.
