Pork Binagoongan (Pork in Shrimp Paste)

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.

Pork Binagoongan


  • 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.
  • water

Cooking Procedure

  1. In a wok add pork pieces, 1 cup of water and vinegar, bring to a boil and cook until water has totally evaporated.
  2. 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.
  3.  Add the bagoong, chili finger,  pepper and msg, cook while continuously stirring for 2 minutes.
  4. Serve with lots of steamed rice.
  5. Share & enjoy!
