Pork with Bagoong (Binagoongang Babo) Recipe

Ingredients :

    • 2 tablespoons oil
    • 5 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 small onion, diced
    • 1 small tomato, diced
    • 11/2 lbs (750 g) boneless pork shoulder or rump, cubed
    • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
    • 3/4 cup (175 ml) water
    • 4 tablespoons fermented baby shrimp (bagoong alamang)
    • 6–8 green bird’s eye chilies (siling labuyo), lightly bruised (optional)

Method :

    1. Heat the oil in a large skillet and stir-fry the garlic until golden brown, then stir-fry the onion until translucent. Add the tomato and cook until soft.
    2. Add the pork and sugar, and cook over medium heat until the meat is browned, about 10 minutes. Add the water and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes until the pork is cooked.
    3. Add the fermented shrimp and chilies, and simmer for another 15 minutes or until the pork is very tender. Stir occasionally to prevent the sauce from burning. Best served hot with white rice.
