Food Trip Friday---Pork Binagoongan


I had no idea how to cook this. I thought of a Pinakbet recipe minus the rest of the vegetables except for the eggplant, and with more shrimp paste. And it was a success. This was totally an experimental dish.

I used evaporated milk, added green chilli to give some spice and color for the presentation.

What You Will Be Needing:

Lean Pork cut into small strips
1 whole red tomato (cut into quarters)
1 whole onion (chopped)
5 cloves garlic (minced)
2 1/2 to 3 tablespoons shrimp paste
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons evaporated milk
1 eggplant (sliced to your desired shape)
2 green chilli (sliced in the middle)
Pinch of pepper
1/2 cup water

How To:

In a pan, saute garlic until golden brown.
Add onions and tomatoes. Stir for a few seconds.
Add the lean pork.Stir again for a few seconds.
Add 1/2 c water
Wait until meat is all tender. Set aside drained water from the meat.
In the very same pan, stir shrimp paste and pork together.
Add the evaporated milk. Keep stirring.
Add a little of the pork broth.
Add the sliced Eggplant. Stir again for a few seconds.
Add pepper and chilli.
Stir for 2 minutes until all is thick.
Yummy!!! Another Filipino Authentic Dish!
