Lazy PinakbetThursday, August 21, 2014
Pinakbet or pakbet is an indigenous Filipino dish from the northern region of the Philippines. It is made up of mixed vegetables, pork and shrimp paste. My version (which always on the lazy side) used pre-packed pinakbet mix (available in most wet market or grocery) bottled bagoong paste and pork giniling or minced pork.
1 pre-packed pinakbet mix
62 grams pork giniling*
1 onion, minced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp shrimp paste or more depend on your taste
sugar & pepper to taste
In a pan, saute garlic and onion until translucent. Add pork giniling and cook until browned. Add pinakbet mix then mix together. Add shrimp paste, sugar and pepper then cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until vegetables are cooked. Serve with steam rice.
*pork meat is always in portion because I'm having a hard time digesting large amount of meat in a dish.
