Pork Kare-Kare Recipe | Kare-Kareng Pata ng Baboy

I love to cook new recipes and when Connor mentioned some of his favourite Filipino dishes I had to 'attempt' to cook them. Keeping in mind I'm neither Filipino or a cook, these are what I suppose are my UK interpretation of the dishes.

I've enjoyed a fair few dishes from the Philippines - Sinigang, Pancit Canton, Tinola, Adobo and a few more, I want to feature more of them on here since many of you lovelies are based in Asia. And, if you're not based in Asia you can also cook up a treat with these really warming, belly-hugging dishes.




Ingredients


 500g Pork Belly
 2 litres Water
 1 tbsp Olive oil
 250g Green beans
 Pack of Broccoli

Kare-Kare Sauce

 2 cups Pork Broth (from cooking the pork belly)
 60g sliced Onions
 1 tbsp crushed garlic
 1 tbsp Olive oil
 1/4 cup Roasted peanuts - chopped
 3 large tbsp Peanut Butter
 1/2 tbsp Shrimp paste
 Salt & Pepper
 Cornflower (optional)

How to Cook 

 In a large pot, boil the pork belly in the water, season with salt and pepper. Set aside the pork broth.
 Saute onion in the oil and add the garlic and chopped peanuts.
 Add the reserved pork broth, peanut butter and shrimp paste to the pot and simmer for around ten minutes.
▼ If you wish your sauce to be thicker, add a little cornflour until it thickens, season the sauce well.
 In a steamer (Or in the microwave if you don't have one) add the broccoli. Cook until tender. If using a microwave, add the broccoli to some water in a bowl and cook until soft.
 In a new pot, saute garlic and onion in some oil. Once browned, add in the cooked pork belly.
 Crisp the pork belly fat (optional)
 Mix in the sauce and simmer for approx. 10mins.
 Serve with rice and enjoy!

That wraps up my recipe. Have you ever tried Kare-Kare? if so, how does your recipe differ from mine? I'd love to hear your thoughts
