How to Make Pinakbet


  • 1In a heavy dutch oven, heat oil and fry the pork until browned, remove the pork from the pan and set aside. do not drain drippings.
  • 2In the same pan, saute garlic, onion, ginger, long pepper and tomatoes. but don't let it burn. Burnt ginger is bad...
  • 3In a sauce pan, boil 1 - 2 cups water and add bagoong.(found at most Asian food stores)
  • 4Add the pork and bagoon mix back into the dutch oven with the sautéed garlic, onion, ginger and tomatoes and Bring to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes. Keep an eye on moisture level so it doesn't burn.
  • 5Add in all the other vegetables and cook until the vegetables are done, careful not to overcook.
  • 6Salt and pepper to taste I use soyu
  • 7Serve hot with white pearl rice or over quinua.
