How to cook Nilagang Baboy
Nilagang Baboy Recipe is one of the easiest and simplest Filipino soup dishes that many of us can prepare because it’s basically a boiled meat along with many vegetables of your choice. Others call it Pork Nilaga (boiled pork) and best served at dinner and lunch time.
Even if the recipe is so easy and simple to prepare, it is must put attention to the texture of the meat to make sure that your Nilagang Baboy is yummy. Oppps! It’s not just yummy, it’s yummylicious.
The scrumptious taste of Nilagang Baboy depends on upon every ingredient you put of course. In my case, I always put sweet corn to make the soup more appetizing and flavorful.
Not only that, we Filipinos are very fond of sauces and condiments and this Nilagang Baboy is best partnered with Dipping sauce made of Fish Sauce (Patis), Kalamansi and Siling Labuyo.
