I usually go to Sto. Tomas Batangas to eat my favorite Pork Nilaga or Beef Bulalo. It's a pork or beef soup with clear broth. Sometimes, I also eat Gotong Batangas or Beef Innard Soup. I like dishes with broth. Today since we are still in community quarantine, I cook my own version of Pork Nilaga.
Pork Nilaga or Filipino Pork Soup is a common dish in the Philippines. Filipinos love eating soup dishes and Pork Nilaga is an example.
Yesterday when I went to the market I bought 1/2 kilo of pork meat with bones, Buto-buto. I prefer meat with bones because I want the soup to be tastier. I use different vegetables in my Pork Nilaga. Usually, others use pechay and banana (saba). I want it more healthier so I add different vegetables to it.
Here's the ingredients
- 1/2 kilogram Pork
- 2 big potatoes - sliced
- 5 pcs. okra
- 10 pcs. string beans
- 1 pc. egg plant
- 1 knorr pork cube
- 1 onion chopped
- 2 tbs fish sauce and salt
- 8 cups of water
- 1 tbs pepper corn
- Put water in a pot, bring to boil.
- Add pepper corn and onion, let it boil until onion is tender.
- Add the pork, stir. Cook it for 60 minutes or until the pork is tender.
- Add the potato, until the potato is tender.
- Add string beans and eggplant. Cook for 3-5 minutes.
- Put the fish sauce and salt. Add the okra and bring it to boil.
- Put it in a bowl and serve.
- PORK - is an excellent source of protein and provides several important vitamins and minerals.
- SITAW - contains vitamins and mineral with folate.
- OKRA - is rich in magnesium, folate, fiber, antioxidants, and vitamin C, K1, and A.
- POTATO - contains fiber, potassium, vitamin C, and vitamin B6.
