Nilagang Baboy Recipe

Nilagang Baboy Recipe


INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 kilo pork (the kind with some bone in it, some fat will do nicely too)
  • 1.5 pitchers water
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 medium onions, quartered
  • ginger, about half an inch, skin removed and crushed
  • pechay leaves (bok choy also works fine)
  • three pieces corn, cut into manageable pieces
  • 4 pieces small banana plantain (optional)
  • medium potatoes (quantity depends on how much you love spuds, skinned and chopped into two. In our case we used baby potatoes from the garden)
  • salt and pepper

INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Place 1.5 pitches of water in a deep pot, toss in the ginger, onion and garlic, and bring to a boil. This ensures that early on, the flavours of these spices are absorbed by the water.
  2. When the water is boiling, put in the pork pieces. Grind a generous amount of black pepper into the water, and sprinkle salt (about 1 tablespoon for starters). Cover the pot over medium heat. When the water starts boiling again, add the corn and cover. In case you see scum floating on the water, remove these.
  3. The pork should be soft enough to be pierced with a fork without much effort 40 minutes after placing the pork in the boiling water. At this point you can also taste the soup and see if it needs more salt and pepper.
  4. When the pork is tender, add in the potatoes and cover. Avoid stirring at this time because the potatoes can disintegrate when cooked. Five minutes after placing the potatoes, turn off the heat. After 5 more minutes (or less, check when your potatoes can be pierced by a fork with a bit of resistance, we do not want overcooked potatoes), place the pechay leaves on top and cover once again for a couple more minutes just to cook the leaves.
  5. Serve in a big bowl, with smaller bowls to go around for diners to pour in their own wonderful soup of goodness. Nilagang baboy also goes well with patis (fish sauce) as dip.
