How to make Linat-an
Linat-an Recipe is a satisfying, filling and very delicious Filipino soup dish that is very popular in Cebu and Mindanao, it is simple and easy to prepare.
Linat-an is like Nilagang Baboy, it is boiled until the pork is tender, although both dishes have the same cooking process but with different ingredients that distinguish one from the other. Linat-an is more like Sinigang na Baboy without a souring agent and it makes use of red bell pepper, tanglad leaves (lemongrass), gabi (taro root), and sitaw ( string beans). The tanglad leaves enhances the aroma and the flavor of the soup while the gabi makes the soup thicker and more flavorful.
This is the first time we tried this soup dish and we find it very rich-tasting soup, I can tell you that my family enjoyed it and they ask for more. I suggest you try this creamy and flavorful Linat-an Recipe, you will surely love and enjoy it too.
