Paksiw na Pata

Paksiw na pata, just like adobo, is a very simple and easy to prepare dish. And it's not so expensive, too because basically, you only need garlic, vinegar and soy sauce for this dish. Here's the recipe:


1 kilo pork pata (pork legs cut into serving-size pieces, soak on a brine solution for at least 1 hour)
2 tbsp minced garlic (I used McCormick; fresh crushed garlic may also be used, of course)
¾ cup vinegar
¾ cup soy sauce (I used kikoman as I love its taste on meat)
½ cup of sugar
3 pieces dried bay leaves
2 packs of dried banana blossoms
Pepper corn
2 pieces siling labuyo (hot chilli pepper)
3 cups water

How to cook:

  1. Put the water, sliced pork pata, soy sauce, garlic, bay leaves and pepper corn in a pot and let it simmer for 60 – 90 minutes, or until the pork is tender. Check it once in a while and remove the scum (grayish-brown substance formed when simmering pork meat).
  2. Add the vinegar and let it simmer for another 10 minutes.  
  3. Add banana blossoms, sugar and siling labuyo and simmer for 10 more minutes.

That's it, paksiw na pata is now cooked and ready to serve.  Share and enjoy! ^_^
