Try the popular Filipino dish which is sinigang and you will never regret


There are many dishes that you can only taste here in the Philippines (unless there are restaurants in other countries that serves Filipino dishes, but even if that’s the case, there’s really that taste that only Filipinos can do, I don’t know why, I don’t know how, we just did)

One of the famous dishes here in the Philippines and I think some foreigners already know it, is the Sinigang.
When you asked Filipinos what are their favorite viands, the usual answer that you can hear is “sinigang”. The soup has a sour taste that we Filipinos love and makes us crave more. It doesn’t matter if we get fat or what but what really matters is how delicious the sinigang is.



Even if you’re not here in the Philippines, try cooking it on your own. But it is really the best if you taste the sinigang cooked by a Filipino.

Let’s start cooking! I know you’re curious what really is the taste of it so I’m excited for you to experience the sinigang!


First, prepare the ingredients:

string beans or sitaw
green chili
black pepper
fish sauce
sinigang mix (or if your country doesn’t have one, use tamarind or lemon instead)


1. cut the ingredients


Of course, you need to cut it! The onion, tomato and other vegetables. If you’re in a hurry, I suggest you cut the pork smaller, so its easier to eat and the meat will be cooked faster than the usual.


2. Boil 2 liters of water for 20 minutes then put the pork and wait until the meat is tender

not necessarily 2 liters, it depends on how many grams the pork you have.


3. put the onions and tomatoes. Simmer for about 7 minutes


Onions and tomatoes produces a great taste into the soup. The longer the simmering is, the tastier it is.

4. put green chili, okra, sitaw


put all the vegetables except the kangkong. If you want a spicy one, slice the green chili into two. But if you don’t want that spicy, put the one whole green chili.


5. add salt, pepper and fish sauce to taste

6. add sinigang powder

I recommend you put the one whole sachet because it is much delicious if its sour. But if you don’t want a super sour one, maybe just put half of it or put as much as you want.


7. put the kangkong

After you put the kangkong, turn off the stove. Kangkong is a leaf so its cooked faster than the other vegetables. It doesn’t taste good if its overcooked.

And there you have it! Pork sinigang! Easy to cook, nutritious and delicious food!
