Pork Binagoongan is a simple Filipino dish made out of pork pieces dressed with bagoong sauce, a really tasty dish paired with steamed rice. My first taste of this was made by a good friend who happened to stay home with us for a few weeks, from then on this became a favorite occasional dish to me. I love it’s strong and salty taste and now that I have learned cooking the dish I’ve increased the amount of pork to my satisfaction. And yet this can’t be a regular menu, beside the fact that pork isn’t much available here this isn’t a healthy dish to commend as you just can’t stop picking on until it is all gone. But if you really want to go a long way with lots of rice then try this luscious dish.
- 500g pork belly, sliced in pieces
- 1/3 cup bagoong (shrimp paste), ( i used the sauteed one that i previously posted)
- 1/4 cup white vinegar
- 6 cloves garlic, minced
- 3 pcs. green chili finger, chopped
- freshly ground black pepper
- a pinch of msg.
- In a wok add pork pieces, 1 cup of water and vinegar, bring to a boil and cook until water has totally evaporated.
- Continue to cook until the pork fat releases the oil, add the garlic and put the heat on medium. Fry it on its own oil until brown and a bit crispy.
- Add the bagoong, chili finger, pepper and msg, cook while continuously stirring for 2 minutes.
- Serve with lots of steamed rice.
- Share & enjoy!
